Hopes and Dreams
Science has been the backbone of my life ever since my high school days
in Malaysia. Although I studied many science subjects like Physics and Biology,
I was especially fond of chemistry. My fondness of chemistry was attributed to
my chemistry teacher Mr. Ang, in the eleventh grade who motivated me to explore
every topic in great depth. He always gave me great advice, and I was greatly
influenced by his spirit and values.
Before I applied to universities in Malaysia, I attended various
seminars which gave advice to students who were applying to universities and
colleges. It is here that I got the most important advice of all, "Chose a
major in a field that interests you." It did not take long before I was
accepted to the xxxx University, and I chose Chemical Engineering as my field of
study. Unfortunately, I had to deny the offer since my family had decided to
move to the United States of America.
Moving to the States has not been easy. I have not only encountered
cultural differences, but a lot of difference in the educational system as well.
But my goal to major in Chemistry still remains unchanged, and my options have
widened. Last year, I learned about the Center for Science Excellence in one of
my Chemistry classes, but I wasnít aware of the many advantages and rewards of
being part of such a remarkable program.
As a newcomer, I have made numerous mistakes in choosing my courses and
I need a lot of good advice and guidance. The Center for Science Excellence is
exactly the type of program that can fulfill these needs, and help to put me on
the right track instead me personally learning from costly mistakes. CSE is
center which guides many other science students. It would be very helpful to
make friends with other science students with whom I can exchange knowledge,
ideas, and friendship. The internships that CSE provides to its students would
help me gain experience and exposure to various areas in science which interest
me, and hopefully guide me to the job of my dream.
The guided study sessions would be a great asset to my education and
would greatly increase my chances of being successful in every class. The
various seminars and guest speakers would give me knowledge that isnít in the
school syllabus, and help expand my view of the scientific world.
Being accepted as part of the Center for Science Excellence will not
only help me succeed as a student, but it would give me a head-start towards my
goals in life.
