Personal Statement

Personal Statement Sample
I have always been fascinated by how the human body operates. I would pester my dad with all sort of questions on human body but he would politely tell me that its only God who knows how the human body operates. I always wondered where tears come from and why heart beats faster when someone is anxious or in fear. I got answers to this questions years later during a science lesson. During that lesson, our science teacher introduced us to the blood circulatory system. As he took us through this interesting topic, I was intrigued by how the heart performed such an important task in our bodies.

When I was young I always thought that the human spirit resided in the heart, the moment it stopped ‘beating’ a person dies. But the science topic helped me understand the inner working of the heart. This new found knowledge catapulted my desire to pursue sciences. The sciences hold the answers and explanations to everything we see around us, and the sheer wealth of knowledge that remains untapped is astounding. It is both this present level of understanding and as of yet undiscovered knowledge that draws me to the sciences.

Being an extremely quick learner and constantly searching for answers for anything new I learnt, I spent most of my time absorbing information from books in the library and at home. I came to understand why a magnifying glass could set dried grass alight, why aeroplanes could manage to go up into the sky despite their enormous weight, and why some birds can’t fly. Armed with these information, I founded science lessons fun and interesting. During my free time, I would assist fellow students who found the some concepts hard to understand. I formed a science club to help students realize how important the sciences are in their lives. With assistance of our science teacher, we were able to scientifically name all type of trees within our locality.

By the time I came to sit my KCSE examinations, in which I received top grades in physics, biology, chemistry and mathematics, I was already familiar much of the syllabus I would be following when I moved to college. During this time, arrangements were made for me to spend my two-week work experience period at the Kenya Bureau of Standards (KBS), which I enjoyed considerably. KBS is responsible for ensuring that all manufactured goods meet the set standards, also they inspect imported goods for any counterfeit products. During my two-week placement, I learned how KBS detect sub-standards drinks and medicines through intensive chemical analysis, though time consuming, I appreciated the lengths a scientist would go to ensure the safety of humanity.

My thirst for scientific knowledge has never diminished since my early years and I see my future devoted to a broad spectrum of scientific study. At this time I am not ready to devote my attention to one particular field and am keen to continue learning about the sciences as a whole. The greater my understanding of the different elements of the scientific world the better equipped I feel I will be when the times comes to focus my attentions towards a more specialised field of study and research.

My long term goal is to develop a vaccine for the HIV/AIDS. I understand this is complex and requires deeper understanding of the HIV’s DNA structure. I feel I have the necessary understanding, qualifications and personal drive to successfully take on a course in the sciences. My ambition is to be involved in a wide range of pioneering of scientific study and I feel this is the obvious choice for the next stage of my education.
