I miss you dear.
My personal statement. I know, there were some freaking stupid “Exeter” there. That’s the punishment for not going to classes and writing the night before applying.
When I was 16 years old, I started working as a collaborator of Hoa Hoc Tro Magazine - the most famous newspaper for students in Vietnam. I thought that I was going to be a journalist and would work in media industry. However, my vision all changed. When I turned 18, I became the team leader of a collaborators group working for my magazine. My responsibilities were delegating work to other team members, checking, monitoring the duties of everyone in my team, holding meetings and promoting development plans for the team. In other words, somehow, I was a manager. And since then, I have found myself being interested in management and leadership. Also, inspired by my father career with his company, I started desiring to run my own business in the future. Thus, a degree in management together with the valuable knowledge I earn during the course would greatly facilitate my ambition.
Two years ago, realizing my interest in business management, I tried so hard and got accepted by National Economics University of Vietnam - the leading university in business and economics in Vietnam. During the time I spent in this university to take a business management course, the more I studied, the more I got interested in this subject. However, after a year, I realized that the course in Vietnam wasn’t challenging enough for me. I wanted to experience a better education, to better myself and to gain more knowledge in order to make my dream come true. Then, the idea about studying in the United Kingdom came to my mind, due to the worldwide famous and reliable education system. After researching, I have chosen the University of Exeter, which is famous for business study, to be my ultimate destination.
I was not in any club or society when I was in high school and in my previous Vietnamese university, because I was busy working, leading a team, being a journalist and getting real business experiences. Starting working so early, I have learned how to get used to pressure. In addition, because of the feature of my work, I have been in many big events, met many people working in many different sectors, which allows me to gain a large range of knowledge about different kinds of businesses. I have also realized that management stands as an important factor everywhere, in every work, in every business, from my own scheduling and personal planning to the function of a high school or the work of a famous single.
My mother was always complaining about me because I spent too much time outside working. Of course, I was aware that working and studying at the same time was not easy for a high school student. However, even when sometimes, my life became really busy, I still wanted to force myself working and studying harder, because in my opinion, that was a really good way to train myself and develop my personal skills such as scheduling, timing, planning and leading,… Trying to get between studying and working, I also found out my strengths and weaknesses, which provides me with a clearer self-consciousness and lets me personally plan in order to better myself. One of my strengths is that I am really good at management and leadership, which makes me even more confident about studying business and management. However, it is not enough for me. I want to develop these skills and make them more useful for my future career. Choosing this course, now, is the best way for me to reach the mentioned aim and my further ambition.
I believe that my personal traits would allow me to excel in this course. I am motivated and I am ambitious, which means I expect much from myself. Business and management course will give me the chance to build the first stable step of my future career. I won’t stop trying to be an excellent student and I will contribute my success in the fame of University of Exeter.
Từ trước đến giờ, tôi thường nghĩ rằng, người ta luôn thấy cái chân đau nhức nhối hơn niềm vui thích được mang một đôi tất mới. Nhưng hôm nay, trên đường tới Exmouth, tôi nghĩ lại và đổi ý. Thật ra, về lâu dài, người ta sẽ chỉ còn nhớ những điều tốt đẹp, giống như kiểu lớn lên rồi chỉ muốn quay lại thời còn cắp sách đến trường mà không màng đến những cái khó mà thời đấy còn hay nhíu mày và nói bậy, giống như kiểu quên một người, rồi chỉ muốn quay lại nằm gọn trong lòng người ta như con mèo nhỏ, mà không màng đến những lúc còn đứng chung một căn phòng nhưng chỉ muốn chạy ra cho thật nhanh. Ai bảo những điều không hay thì khó quên? Thời gian kiểu gì cũng cuốn trôi cho bằng sạch.
