MA Biotechnology, Medicine

A 22-year-old woman born and raised in New York, I love my home and see XXXX as the queen of NYC's educational institutions. I look forward to a long and productive career as a research professional working in laboratories specifically dedicated to applying biotechnology to meeting human needs in medicine, industry, and agriculture, precisely the three areas that distinguish the program at Columbia. I am asking Columbia for a chance to enroll in one or two graduate-level classes to have the opportunity to prove myself as a dedicated student who is capable of doing excellent graduate work. Later, I hope to be accepted as a full-time student working towards the M.A. Degree in Biotechnology.

I am capable of solid performance since I hold a B.S. in Biological Anthropology from George Washington University with a minor in Biology. I have also completed pre-medicine classes and have extensive professional experience in related areas. I am a very hard worker and very dedicated to my studies. I have a fixed, long-term focus on professional success and contribution to scientific advancement. A fervent believer in high professional standards, I will devote everything I have to my studies at XXXX if given the opportunity. I am very highly motivated to study and become a competent biotechnology research professional because I know that it is here where I would be able to make my most significant contribution to humanity.

What is most important to me is making my mark, my contribution as a research scientist, struggling with many of the complex biotechnological problems confronting us as a modern society still in great need of increasingly creative and productive scientific advancement. This is why I want to spend my life as a research scientist in medicine, regulation of drug approval, and management/organizational issues pertaining to health care and food and medicine production.

I am a young Jewish woman who has worked especially hard in life, learning. I am fully fluent in Spanish as well as English and Hebrew. A global citizen who is well-read and well-traveled, having spent considerable periods in China and Israel, I have a profound appreciation for diversity and cross-cultural harmony— bridging cultural distances in the name of scientific advancement. Perhaps the most vital aspect of my candidacy to begin studying in your program is my extensive professional and volunteer experience at XXXX Medical Center in NY, where I had the privilege to serve as an Ambulatory Clinician intern with a special devotion to Pediatric Hematology/Oncology. An International Scholar Laureate Program also rewarded my seriousness and persistence in Anthropology and Archaeology in China, where I had the chance to work on various archaeological sites throughout the country. This experience, in particular, has greatly heightened my appreciation for diversity and cross cultural communication.
