It all started with an impulse to understand how things work. At some point, I went to the extent of wanting to open the back of our Television set in a bid to understand how “people got in in the television”, or at least get in and be seen on television. I was smidge 3 years old, and little did I know that I was gaining interest in the engineering field. My father was particularly helpful in helping me nurture this scintillating urge to become an engineer. On realizing that I was fascinated with “how things work”, he embarked on a mission to help me become one. On several occasions, he bought me documentaries about construction of buildings, designs of bridges, the process of assembling a motor vehicle and technology documentaries. I recall several of my peer developing atrocious behaviors towards my tasted of movies. Nonetheless, this could not deter me from watching my taste of movies. In essence, it further propelled to watch more of such movies- I even developed an interest in sci-fi movies. On one of my birthdays, my dad bought me a documentary touching on the construction of bridges. I was exceptionally thrilled with the Brooklyn Bridge and made a life’s mission to appear in history books as a designer and constructor of a bridge.
I have a glinting interest in engineering as a profession. In line with my professional goals, it is only logical that I enroll in an institution that will equip me the professional knowledge that I much need. Being a forward minded student, I took engineering related subjects in high school. I am particularly interested with Santa Monica College owing to its location- Santa Monica College is located in Santa Monica which is a small town with distinct structural features. Santa Monica boasts of the famous Santa Monica Pier that has striking structural design hence can make a cogent case study with regards to the study of structures and beams. Again, a Santa Monica College degree will substantially better my chances of joining University of California for further education, which will help me become an all-important engineer the world over.
I am of Saudi Arabian decent; therefore, I had to take English lesson at the International English center at CU Boulder for six months. Coupled with my English proficiency, I posses exemplary communication skills, both verbal and none verbal. I am intrinsically motivated to become an engineer. Besides, I am an academically versatile individual who takes pride in the readership of any literature relevant to the engineering field. My mathematical and analytical skills are also prodigious. My good communication skills will go a long way in helping communicate effectively with all and sundry as an engineer. On the same note, an engineer should be up to date with technological advancements taking place in worldwide. In this light, I will make use of my academic versatility, specifically love for reading, to ensure that nothing pertaining to engineering and technology passes without my notice. In the same light, engineering pertains looking for solutions to everyday problems- problems that involve a lot of mathematics and analysis. With my analytical and mathematical skills, I am certain to make an accomplished engineer who provides solutions to the world.
