Dear Sir or Madam,
I am writing to apply for Bachelor’s degree of Computer and Information Science, in which I am enormously interested. The degree from one of the most elitist and respected colleges is my chance to enrich my knowledge and learn calmly and deliberately thereby contribute to the development of humanity and online rights, promoting software engineering in the world by contributing the development of IT in my native country and a whole world.
My full name is Lazizbek Ravshanov and I graduated from Jizzakh vocational college of transport and communication with honours on July last year in my home country, Jizzakh, Uzbekistan. As I have a dedication and buoyancy to have higher education abroad, now I possess a burning desire to carry on my bachelor’s degree at your college on a scholarship basis which has also been my lifelong ambition.
I was born in one of the most vitally important cities of the republic of Uzbekistan, Jizzakh in 1998 as the senior offspring of my family unit. When I was a schoolboy, I used to have a varied of passions towards subjects such as science, chemistry, biology, physics and mathematics. In 2014 I finished school which is located in my hometown and then entered Jizzakh vocational college of transport and communication. According to famous saying of Einstein “I am neither clever nor especially gifted. I am only very, very curious” At college, my passion towards mathematics grew me desire to study in the domain of computer science and technology as a lifelong career in the future. During three academic years at college, I studied at the department of computer science and information technology as well as excelled at mathematics and foreign languages, namely English and Russian. These subjects assisted me to understand how programs are created and how the algorithms of them are input to computers which I had difficulty to comprehend when there was something wrong with the operational system of my laptop. Moreover, as my father’s job is dependant on computers, my father used to repair personal computer regularly and I had a tendency to help him by passing essential microchips. This habit really pushed me to learn coding as well as decide to be an excellent programmer. Over the past fourteen months all in all, with a view of earning some money for my daily expenses, I worked at different education centres as an English educator teaching the ins and outs of English to novice learners. This was the first and foremost step towards my goal whereby I became very enthusiastic about learning programming in English which influenced me positively. I do believe that these experiences are valuable for the course at college. In addition, it is beyond all dispute that in today’s era computer science has a significant role in our lives and it is almost unfeasible to visualize the life without devices which are highly effective and powerful. This has also impacted positively on my decision to be a programmer.
Several reasons appear to be quite convincing for me to make a decision to dedicate a part, the most important part, of my life to studying in the USA, specifically in Berea College.
First of all, I know that the USA holds great position not only in global economy but also in world industry as well as a great number of companies and corporations ranging from Microsoft to Apple and it would be a unique opportunity to have bachelor’s degree in world’s industrial spot. Additionally, the USA is a country where the intellectual ability of individuals is highly appreciated. These features are improvement of youth well-being, involvement of young people into social life , finding and promotion of young leaders. It is very important for me. That’s why I strive to take part in your educational establishment together with progressive international youth.
The second factor which inspired me to make choice of this area is my lifelong dream which means that I have always had a strong passion for becoming involved in a part of American society, specifically as a leader to be in touch with others. Since my childhood, I have been interested in becoming a programmer; possibly it might have resulted from some movies where programmers always evaluated highly. From that time on, I am still living my dream to be an influential programmer.
The third reason is that there are practically my friends who have studied and studying at the same field as my choice in different parts of the world. They have already developed their career, and in turn naturally according to their high recommendation, I am applying to this department.
To sum up, taking these reasons into account, I have a great interest in this field, and I believe I will painstakingly strive for making my dreams come true and definitely achieve my lifelong goal with the help of Berea college.
In terms of my study plan during my stay at this college, I can say that I have clear and well thought plans which include as follows; I give my all to learn all necessary knowledge from my future teachers at the department of Computer and Information Science. Not only in theoretical way I am planning to study hard but in practical way, too. To be more specific, I will try to develop computer skills which are pivotal to be a great computer literate among different students.
Another one is to spend my time during study period learning American culture which is full of great history, thrilling events and influential individuals. In reality there are many plans that I am going to put all of them into practice with every fibre of my being, however, some of my priorities have been mentioned above. They are pressing ones “No those aims, no life at all”
When it comes to my after graduate plans, I am going to pursue my Masters Degree level, too. The reason is that I must be well-educated programmer. When I graduate my Master’s degree, I am planning to enhance the field of programming in my motherland which is not developed as yours, if possible, creating the branches of famous
American companies in my homeland, Uzbekistan .This would be a great opportunity to sharpen the fraternity between these two countries. Moreover, I have clear plans to be implemented in recent years with the help of your college. If I am accepted as a student at this prestigious college, I will definitely put all my plans into practice.
Last but not least, there were numerous works which I along with my classmates did accomplish during study at college. It was a year ago that I was a student at college, I was in the chattering class which was full of enthusiasm and competition between my classmates. Unexpectedly, the director visited our room and said that we had to do volunteer work with our group. Then I and my friends discussed what we could do. At that time, I had a snap decision that we might do spring cleaning in our city. Having heard this idea, my classmates did not throw cold water on my opinion, meaning that they all agreed to make the city as clean as a new pin within two weeks before our traditional holiday which is called Navruz. Afterwards, we founded a special fund for the use of some tools that would require spending. Moreover, we made strenuous efforts for two weeks cleaning the parks and funfair of the city. Ultimately, we finished our objective on time that we went through fire and water in this experience. I think it was our team effort which we are proud of and also many people do appreciate our determined effort which took two weeks of our lifetime.
In conclusion, I would like to say that I am eager to gain new experiences , improve my skills and broaden my understanding of the dynamic computerized world, and I am persuaded that studying at Berea in the major of Computer and Information Science would contribute to my development as a specialist of international level in the best possible way.
Thank you very much considering my application.
