Since my childhood, I have always been interested in learning new things within the scientific world. Everything that includes “a scientific discovery” in its title has always attracted my attention. For example, I have been always impressed by the mystery of our universe and the secrets that it holds, or even the functioning of our stunning planet Earth, with its countless environments and wild-creatures. But what always has been of special interest to me is the human body and how it functions. The numerous structural details and tasks of our body never fail to amaze me. With new research, technology, medicine and treatments, doctors are constantly able to improve the health care and treatment they provide patients for illness such as many genetic diseases, cancer or even infectious and non-infectious diseases. I enjoyed studying chapters about genetic disorders, as now doctors have more hopes in treating patients with genetic problems, such as cystic fibrosis. Although this field is further under research, the results are showing positive signs, and hence illustrating the growing opportunities/treatments in the field of medicine. This field of study is constantly evolving and dynamic, and there is so much to learn about the human body, and I am fascinated by all the systems in our body, such as nervous system, homeostasis and particularly the cardiovascular system. Our body depends on the proper functioning of the heart, as it pumps blood, hence delivering vital substances, to our cells. This incredible muscle is coordinated by the synchronized activity of the Sinoatrial node, the atrioventricular node and Purkyne tissue. Hence, causing the heart muscle to contract and relax at specific intervals of time. This is one brief example of many, which demonstrates how the way in which the human body works is complicated yet very organized, and how it operates in a systematic manner. I am fascinated by this and it has motivated me to study this astonishing machine, and the best way to do that is through studying the field of medicine further.
Studying medicine will not only satisfy my needs to learn more about the human body but also it will give me the chance to help people. I always have this tremendous feeling of satisfaction when I help someone in need, and it just feels incredible when I am able to solve and help them with their problem. Therefore, I feel medicine is the best field where helping people and learning come together perfectly. I can practice what I love while contributing to society and humankind at the same time. Plus being a young adult that loves challenges and new experiences, I am confident that studying medicine will be highly satisfying, as I am always enthused to move forward and self-motivated. I’m hard-working and confident I can do this.
Academically I have always been a top A grade student, and I have continually strived to do my best. My good academic results are a testament to my hard work and dedication to my studies. When I was able to achieve high grades in my A level exams, it further encouraged me to fulfil my dream of going into medicine, and I always keep in my mind that nothing is impossible to achieve. I know the field of study is very hard and competitive, but I believe if I continue to work hard and remain committed to my studies, I will be successful.
Following my research and advice from my counsellor, I believe one of the best countries to study medicine in is Germany. Moreover, my mother used to travel extensively to Germany for work purposes previously when she used to work with the company Wella. She was highly impressed with the country, its people and ethics and highly recommended it to me too. Germany has been always known for its extensive scientific contributions to the world, such as the invention of Aspirin, which is considered to be one of the most used medicines worldwide. As well, when it comes to universities, Germany is internationally known for its high teaching standards, top-ranked universities and innovative technology and facilities offered. I constantly read about German hospitals and research facilities continuing to produce ground-breaking new medical technology, innovation and research in the field of medicine, and I see people continually going to Germany for treatment. I would like to learn from these best practices and make use of the modern facilities and knowledge offered by your institutes.
Even the society is known for its cultural-diversity and known to encourage the human brain to come up with ideas that will help promote technology and living standards to the next level. Therefore, Germany is the perfect environment for research, creativity, motivation and studying. Moreover, going to Germany will further enhance my German language and I will be able to perfectly speak Arabic, German and English. This will be a great advantage for my future career as a Doctor as it will help me communicate with various types of patients.
I believe my transition into living in a German society will be easy for me since I spent my last 6 years in Dubai, I learned to be open to all types of cultures. Living in a multicultural society has given me a worthy experience, as I’m able to know how to communicate with various types of nationalities. Therefore, since Germany is culturally diverse too, I will be able to communicate with people easily and adjust to the lifestyle that the country has to offer.
Moreover, I have been studying the German language for the past few months at the Goethe Institute in Dubai, thus giving me further insight into the language and culture of Germany. I am currently studying for my B1 exam. I believe I have a good grasp of the language and look forward to completing my remaining levels at Eurasia Institute, in Berlin, Germany. I believe this institute will further prepare me in language and university preparation well, helping me then able to successfully enter into the University of Heidelberg.
I greatly appreciate the opportunity of studying in Germany, and I look forward to learning from the best. Thank you for your time and consideration.
