As my grades are not the best of the 5 students, I need to make sure that my personal statement makes a significant impact on them.
If you have any advice to offer, please do so ASAP!
“Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning. “
Having always found myself being both confident and comfortable with computers and modern technology it came as no real surprise that I excelled in all areas of Information Processing and Technology and have received several Major Academic Awards as a result. However, this is not to say that I am an expert user, merely that I am capable of listening, experimenting and learning quickly.
I am aware that my current academic results may not appear entirely indicative of absolute excellence, which I attribute predominately to the contrasting nature of my subjects. However, I think that my foray into such a diversity of subjects has ultimately prepared me for real-life challenges where as study in my best areas alone would have left me with a superficial and significantly limited knowledge base.
As I stand now, I have a significantly broad knowledge base, which I believe will ultimately allow me to excel in all areas of the courses that I have applied for.
My leadership role as well as my participation in school musicals, three school bands, the St. Vincent De Paul Society and various other school groups and events have significantly reduced the amount of time for which I can currently allocate to academic endeavours. However, once again, this participation has award me with experiences which I feel will ultimately be necessary to achieve success at Griffith University.
Nevertheless, Information Technology has always been something that interested me and in particular, I found a strong interest in programming and database construction. I am, in fact, currently designing and creating a database for actual school use, which is both a great privilege and an exciting undertaking.
With the aforementioned in mind, it is my hope that I may be granted the unsurpassable opportunity of continuing my study of Information Technology with the use of Griffith University’s excellent facilities
Help me out please!
