I have earned a great deal through maturity, the long process of finding deep inside myself a rich context of finely honed professional skills built upon solid experience. Graduate studies in public administration, for me, is the fruition of a long process of building my professional of interdisciplinary creative experience.
I was born and raised in Central Taiwan. I earned two undergraduate degrees at Hung Kuang Nursing College, complimenting my undergraduate degree in Nursing with another diploma as a Bachelor of Public Administration (1992-1995). My first choice for graduate study is at University of XXXX. I have lived here in XXXX now for many years and I feel very much that it is my new country that I have come very much to love. I am looking forward to contributing to the high level of diversity among the graduate students in your program.
Since I have the deepest respect and admiration for the Public Administration Program at XXXX University, it does not seem appropriate to me for me to apply anywhere else. I have always followed my heart in these matters and I trust that this is by far the best choice that I could make. My greatest gift in life is probably my profound compassion for others. I am a very tender and caring woman who bleeds for those around me who are in distress or in need of assistance. Still, I long increasingly to turn my very high level of passion more directly towards the pursuit of academic excellence, looking forward especially to doing at some point.
I am especially interested in doing graduate work in the area of Public Policy, especially Health Policy, by obtaining a state-of-the-art graduate education in this area and receiving my M.A. Degree in Public Administration. 10 years from now I would like to be working for an organization where I could have direct input on policy decisions. For me, the principal attraction of a career in public administration is that it will allow me to play very active and creative roles as members of teams that build a new future for our society and generations to come.
I am fluent in Mandarin as well as English. Since I lived in Montreal for two years, I also took full advantage of the great opportunity to learn French. I feel that my language skills make me special for a Public Administration Program and I ask that you take them into consideration in the evaluation of my application for both admission and financial aid. Furthermore, my professional credentials are also bolstered by seven years of work experience in nursing. I am a person of diverse interests and I have also benefited professionally from my employment experiences outside of the area of Health Care. Recently, for example, I worked for the Canada Revenue Agency as a Testing Clerk for 5 months. Still, the foremost aspect of my application is my enormous enthusiasm for the cause of public service, helping to resolve numerous, complicated health care issues that surround our chronic, global wide shortage of hearth care workers. I am a cosmopolitan woman that has traveled frequently to Australia, Singapore, and China and I completed my Bachelor's Degree here in America in 1996 at Tucson Arizona. Over the years, I have come to more greatly appreciate the way that public policy, economics, and social issues all come together to play pivotal roles in the formation of government policies and societies own initiatives for our self improvement, especially caring for the disadvantaged among us. I thank you from the bottom of my big heart for your consideration of my application.
