Science has always intrigued me from the very beginning. Starting from forth grade, I loved doing experiments, observing cells, solving problems related with machines. My inclination to science in primary school has urged me to become a science student in high school. I have participated debates, competitions related with science and advocated my ideas clearly. I have also joined the school's science club where I learned the basics of doing a research and how to prepare a thorough science project. Especially my high school years have played an instrumental role on choosing my major. Since, I wasn't into studying medicine, I realized that engineering would be the best place to continue and develop my interest in science.
Starting from my childhood, I have been exposed to engineering in many ways. When I was about 10 years old, my father would pick me up from the school and take me to our factory. I would spend at least two hours a day scrutinizing the machines, running around the factory and putting my nose into the employee's work. After 3 years, I had a work experience in the factory for a month. I was in the packaging section, however I had the access to go to every department and observe the engineers. I would ask them many questions and try to understand their work-styles. Although it didn't last for a long period of time, I got the chance to see the real conditions of a work environment and decide by virtue of my observations.
This experience has thought me a lot of things. Besides showing me the importance of perseverance and hard work, it made me realize that engineering is my ideal major. I am a person who is a researcher and an investigator. I like questioning the variability of things before fully accepting them. I like to be a part of a contentious environment because it forces me to improve my qualities constantly. By studying engineering, I will be able to use my skills and creativity
to solve the problems. Furthermore, I will be helpful to the...
