From an early age, my mother was my role model, and mentor. She managed a real estate company and introduced me to the rudiments of investment, finance, business, the very mechanisms that drive an economy. She would share her business experiences with me and placed the seeds of ambition, and critical thinking in my developing mind. What began as a dream, imagining myself in an exciting and dynamic world that would stimulate my mind, turned into ambition as I helped in the family business, laying the necessary foundation for my future in Economics.
Indeed, from the time I was in middle school, I have kept my eye firmly on a future in Economics, to be a part of the machine that acts as the clockwork of entire countries, even the world. My ambition turned into drive, and I succeeded in getting into the finest high school in Dalian, China; my hometown. Dalian has a reputation of being a model city in China, but it is so much more than just a beautiful city. It is an example of what careful planning, ambition, and focus can accomplish. Being immersed in Dalian’s aspiring culture was infectious and I am proud to have grown up there.
Completing half of my high school education in China and the remainder of my education in America has impressed upon me the value of a quality education, and so I gave everything I had, and practiced my English as much as possible. English is an international language, even in China, which enjoys one of the fastest growing economies in the world, second only to the United States and is in need of quality researchers and economists to help point or lead the way to ensure China’s economic growth and future. It is my aim to fill this need, completing my education in the US, focusing on Global Economic Research, and going on to work in a multinational capacity. The ideal would be for me to work for one of the foremost investment banks, acting as an investment manager, helping clients make the most of their portfolios as I build my experiences to be applied later to larger projects and pursuits.
I have lived and seen firsthand how existing Chinese business practices are being forced to adapt or simply become defunct or absorbed by progress. For the future, I anticipate making valuable contributions to economic thought, ensuring the continued growth of Chinese businesses, and making positive contributions to good business practices, injecting critical guidance for successful projects.
Throughout my time in education, even at a young age in China, America’s educational institutions and their reputation are well-known. Coming to America was largely a choice for investing in my future, to increase my academic foundation, and give my ambition the requisite knowledge it needs to bring my dreams to fruition.
Having lived, worked and been educated in two different countries, in truth, two different continents, has expanded not only my world view but my ability to not only speak two languages competently, but also, and more importantly, interact effectively with people of differing backgrounds, cultures and creeds. Moreover, I have traveled throughout China – Beijing, Shanghai, Hainan, Hong Kong – and Japan. If my future is truly to be in a multinational research environment, it will no doubt have an international dynamic that I will be better equipped to meet the needs and challenges of. It will be one more facet of my abilities wherever I may choose to bring my skills to.
While ambition and drive are two critical elements necessary to be successful in academics and research work, I am aware of how multidisciplinary Economics truly is. With my background in business, love of Mathematics and proven ability in Economics, I feel that I am a strong candidate for XXXX’s Economics program. Throughout my academic career, I have challenged and pushed myself to be the best student that I can possibly be. I have no fear of public speaking, despite English not being my arterial language.
My confidence comes from my certainty that I have done all I can to grasp, digest and apply course material. And academic challenges are personal challenges for me, seeing me completing a 2-year program in 18 months, six months less than students who speak English as a first language, and completing four classes in a six-week winter semester, achieving a perfect GPA at the same time. When academic outlines are clearly laid out, I know what I have to do, they become my personal goals, and I always achieve them.
To be successful in procuring research opportunities, there is a need for healthy competition. Competition not only ensures your own professional future, but that of others around you; it is how economies evolve and grow. Even in my leisure time, playing sports, I am a very competitive and well-rounded player. While it is all in good fun, and keeps my body healthy, I always play to win; it is in my nature, who I am, and I make no apologies for it. My skill in soccer alone opened the door to the finest high school in my hometown. I fully intend on keeping this aspect of my life alive, managing my time as I always have between academics and my sports life.
More than this, I have a strong sense of family. I owe to my family my love of economics, finance, business, mathematics, growing up with my mother as my role model, an ambitious and mold breaking, successful woman. I have received many gifts from my parents, an analytical mind, a sense of responsibility, and a sense of where I want to go in life. My parents’ sacrifices for my future will never be in vain. In truth, thanks to my mother’s example, I see that I can make societal contributions, helping those that are struggling financially utilize what they have to the fullest extent while also investing in not only their future, but our collective futures.
I am truly excited about my future as an Economics major and look forward to the opportunity to develop myself as a creative leader in Global Economic research. Your time and consideration is greatly appreciated and I eagerly await a personal interview.
