I believe education is a major pillar in the economic development of many countries. Just as planning for harvest begins with sowing of a seed, education is very vital in the development of most countries and even the development of the individual’s life as a whole. Therefore, the development of countries and individual’s sense of awareness calls for education of the individual’s whole being. As an international student, I believe the acquisition of skills through education is important in the acquisition and formation of the human capital. Therefore with the education offered to me, I will have a strong investment on me as an asset as well as a physical capital that will in the future after my education will create a great return to help improve my country. I believe my country has not advanced that much due to the limiting factor of lack of human capital to help them advance as such I believe when I acquire the education, I will be a great asset to the growth and development of the country as well as help impact lives of others that may not have received the same opportunity.
I transfer from Washington State University and I am sure that I bring with me a wealth of knowledge and cultural experience to share with the community on campus. I have been studying economics and I plan on continuing with the major after my transfer to University of California. As an international student and contrary to the common believe, I believe that it is not only education that is the panacea of economic development. Education is however a great determinant to economic success. In other words, if the education does not encourage the development of economic activity, the demand of the educated workers will be weak and even those who will be in school struggling to generate the income to go through their education system will be derailed as they will be barely able to make the income to raise themselves and families. As such, I believe the education I will acquire will not only help to liberate the economic success of my country but also improve my other chances of educating others including the authorities on the benefits of supporting the education systems that are established in my country.
Economics is my passion and I believe with the education in Economics, I will be of great support to my country’s development agenda and backbone to their financial and other Economics required areas of the economy. I have been excellent in academics throughout my first and half of my sophomore year and with this experience I acquired for the years of rigorous training in the course, I am positive that I am fully baked and ready to face the higher learning levels in Economics. I am sure with the support from the school and the faculty and the staff members, the future illumines bright and I will be able to go through the course with the determination and dedication all geared for achieving greater class achievement. I will be able to report back to the organization with lots of hope at the end of every semester recess and I am positive that there won’t be any disappointment and you will all be proud of having brought up such an all rounded student and the success will be for us all.
I believe given my discussions in joining the ongoing debate for betterment of my country will enable my dream of being an economist come true. I am humbled to introduce myself to this team of esteemed learners as I pray that may my request be granted. As I have had stated earlier, the education will not only be my joy but also the joy of the entire community, you as well for having brought up another better brain to help join the walk of solving the issues at individual and national levels.
