MOTIVATIONLETTER My decision is not based on my formalinterest, but a distinct choice. Since I was a child, I was really into justiceand crimes, and turned out learning about Law became one of my hobbies. Asgrowing up, I figure out I could excel in other aspects ranging fromlitterature to science.
My sense and my ability for science grew slowly in methat I do not even notice I have a nack for those subjects. Although I studyComputing at highschool, it was really not my favorite subject. It was notuntil the beginning of grade 12 that I started to realize that I had a strongconnection with computer and software as I often lose myself in home recording,video editing and designing. Strange as it might sound, I decided to pursuethis field, knowing that there are infinite obstacles ahead. For a femalestudent who do not really know anything about engineering, that is a toughdecision, but also a brave one.Software Engineering is a greatcombination of the amazement of language that I am fascinated about and my trueability.
I myself noted that I had good abilities in such subjects asmathematics and computing (the GPA for these subjects are 9.3 and 10perspectively). Code to me is another kind of language that everyone has thesame chance to learn and to absorb, it shows equality just exactly the way thatlaws are made to show, and Software Engineering forces me to collect data,think logically like a lawyer combine laws from law books and convince others.This not only made me realize that I could follow what I’m good at but alsoincrease my interest for language. Studying Software Engineering is notthe same as “Get rid of your liking for law”. My interest for Law identified myrole for the community is to devoting for its development.
I chalenged myselfby participating in different volunteer organizations with the hope to bringhappiness to people around me, from my family to even strangers. Besidescommunity work, knowing how to cooperate with machines will help me tosuccessfully acquire in-depth skills for Data scientist – which I consider tobe my future career, bring out the concept of Computer science to apply indifferent industry, and finally to assist others jobs needed in the society. Thatto me is how a “valuable citizen” defined.The intellectual curiousity aboutspecific techniques related to the subject is a reason why I am attracted tothe Software Engineering program in Saxion University, which is a well-knownApplied science university in Netherlands. The school is famous for itspreeminence in the information technology field and the high professionalenvironment, complete with an proficient faculty and inventive researchresources.
I am also impressed by the unique curriculum and intensive subjectsyllabus. I particularly interested in the project skills development, softwaredesign, databasess, IT and law, and the Specialisation part in the final year.Also the fact that Saxion University links its students with many lecturers whoare leading experts in their field is the fundamental reason of why I desire tostudy exact here. I do believe that apart from my strong will for Softwareservices, my clear intention for the community, and my willingness to change,together with my high academic results I achieved (GPA: 91%) and an advancedEnglish communication skill (IELTS band 7.0), studying at Saxion, I seek tocombine all the knowledge and ability I have gathered over the years and try tointensify my command and my passion for software engineering, and in thefuture, Data science. I would like to say that if I become a student of youruniversity, I am confident that I will be a worthy student, not just because Iwould be self-motivated and accomplish my goal, but I will definitelycontribute to the development of the Software services in different industries.My heart sings everyday as I have found what I want to do in my life.
I lovefatasizing myself being an expert inData analyst and Data scientist who gathers and creates their own informationand bring out the valuable “insights” that the marketing sectors or the companyneed for the success of their campaigns. I plan to use the specializedknowledge I absorb from the course to dedicate for the Software services in myhome country, Vietnam, and then hoping to make distinguished impacts on theglobal Software services.I am confident that I will match thehigh standards set by your Committee and I will be able to greatly contributeto the program. With the explicit purpose bearing firmly in mind, I stronglyaspire to secure admission to pursue undergraduate studies, with adequatefinancial assistance in your program which is the Saxion Living TechnologyScholarship since I myself realized I can completely meet the requirements forthis scholarship.
Having the chance to earn the scholarship to study in thisevironment, I would be so proud as I could continue the long and rich historyof the school, and the story of how the Hogeschool Enschede and HogeschoolIjseland paving the way for Saxion University has ignited my heart and become asource of motivation for me, for it gave me respectful and admirable sensewhenever I tell myself that I would be a part of this special experience.Thank you very much for consideringmy application. I look forward to your positive response.Yours sincerely, Thai Thuy Tien
