Through the mentorship of my high school physics teacher, I developed a scintillating desire to become an Engineer. He realized my aptitude in understanding the working mechanisms of various physics components during practical sessions and embarked on a mission of making me realize my potential. This, he told me, was only possible if I realized that I had a promising future in a career that involves the application of physics knowledge. It was not long before his efforts fructified and it was a matter of time before i topped the physics class. I had eventually realized my potential.
I am an academically versatile individual with excellent analytical abilities. I like practical and engineering provides me with enough of this. I am a keen observer and an abstract thinker too. My interest in engineering is deeply rooted, and the desire to excel in this field is one that underlies my every action. With regards to my desire to excel in engineering it is only logical that I enroll in an institution that is stimulating as far as engineering is concerned, thus University of Toronto; ‘ a premier university in Canada’, is where I should belong. This is basically due to the fact that University of Toronto of boasts of an experienced teaching staff in various fields, Engineering inclusive, who approach their work in avidity. I also derive my interest in Engineering from the fact that I am proficient in mathematics and sciences.
Engineering as a profession requires impeccable problem solving skills and determination in teamwork. To this effect, I am a consummate problem solver and a dedicated team player. I posses exemplary leadership skills, and it is inevitable that I will one day receive the Cressy Award for outstanding leadership, an award that also compliments my ardent desire to join University of Toronto. On innovativeness; I received an award in a Grade 11 Physics contest and scored the second highest mark in my school in a Grade 12 contest, which indubitably denotes my innovativeness.
I am optimistic that I will get admission in to the University of Toronto to pursue my dream of being an engineer.
