Personal statement writing step 3:

First attempt

At present I am studying Creative media at Westminster King sway college, While studying on this course I learnt and developed a collection of different skills. One of the many skills  I have and am developing is communication. I can effectively communicate my ideas and notes. However I could always improve on this skill further.Once my class was given a task to explain there idea for their final major project, I used bullet points and from that was able to precisely give the teacher and other students a detailed idea of what I was doing.This proved how I was able to use something very little and make it elaborate. This skill will definitely help me  in life, as I will know how to effectively explain something to someone else. Another one of my skills and attributes is versatility, I work very well in both independent and team environments and would be very valuable when the team needs someone to manage and solve problems.When in a group my team was faced with trying to find an alternative method to change the setting on a picture. We found some alternatives but it led to an argument, I insisted that we try both and hold a vote and we were able to come to a decision. I am also a very hard worker and when given tasks, will not only finish what has been given but will try to do more. I finished the work that my teacher had given me in class and asked her if there was something else that I could do, but there was not, so I decided to do work from another class and help another student. Having this work ethic will help me when I am studying because, I will work to the best of my ability to reach and strive for the best grades. In addition I am a very good researcher and can pick out relevant individual words from paragraphs, analyse and interpret it,When I was studying English, my class was given a task to read an extract and try to interpret it. I was able to create the most interpretations.This will certainly help me when I am studying as I will be able to bring a new and different perspective to an idea or conversation. Making the work produced more unique and creative.I created a multitude of different documentaries pertaining to subjects of my interest, such as Feminism and race.This gave me a broader view on the film industry, and how everything comes together behind the scenes. Because of that experience I now already have a little bit of knowledge about film making, If I do something similar in the future I will know what to do.

I have chosen to apply to your course because, I have always had a great interest in the media, and enjoy exchanging and communicating my ideas and opinions with other people.I am very enthusiastic when it comes to learning, and have always made it a goal of mine to learn as much as possible and know a little bit about everything.Although I already have a lot of Knowledge about social,economic and political issues. I want a greater understanding about what Journalism is its historical background and purpose.Going to your University and studying on your Journalism course will give me the ability to learn the mechanics in Journalism, I spend the majority of my time outside of class researching about Indigenous lifestyles, race and social problems because it is what I enjoy doing. I find these topics in particular intriguing because, as someone who has always lived in Western society I had always speculated how people from different environments with less privileges lived.

Because I have a willingness to always expand and improve my skills and openly accepts and embraces criticism. I would love to turn my knowledge and skills already learnt, in conjunction with the new skills you will teach me, Into something substantial that could be used professionally. When I finish studying in your Uni I intend to work for a media company which allows me the opportunity to travel and write.I would also like to pursue a YouTube career as well, where I can document and talk about my experiences.

5th attempt

I have always had a great interest in media, and enjoy exchanging and communicating ideas and opinions with other people. I am very enthusiastic and always set goals to increase my knowledge.

At present, I am studying Creative computing at Westminster Kingsway college. While studying on this course, I have learnt a variety of skills. One of my skills and attributes is versatility, I work very well in an independent and team environment and would be very valuable as a problem solver. My team was trying to find an alternative method to change the setting on a picture. We had some ideas but it led to an argument, I insisted we try both and hold a vote, which enabled us to come to a decision. I am also a very hard worker and able to meet multiple deadlines . I usually finish my work  in class before the deadline and is frequently left unoccupied. I eventually end up helping students from another class. Having this work ethic will help me when I am studying, as I will work to the best of my ability to reach my full potential. In my English class, I had to read an extract and interpret it and I was able to create the most interpretations. This will certainly help me, as I will be able to bring a different perspective to an idea or conversation, making the work produced more creative. I created multiple different documentaries about interesting topics, for example, Feminism and race. This gave me a broader view of the film industry and its true meaning. I can use this knowledge in the future, if I do something similar. One of the many skills I have and I am further developing is communication. At college, I gained the opportunity to developed my communication skills and was able to impart what I needed people to know in an elaborate way. These communication skills will definitely help me in life, as I will know how to effectively explain something to someone else. During FMP, I conducted several researches and learned how to further develop my presentation skills. I wrote multiple essays about topics of interest, which taught me how to structure an essay. I also leaned how to use sophisticated languages and how to pick out relevant individual words from paragraphs for analysis and interpretation. I spend a majority of my time outside class, researching about Indigenous lifestyles and social problems . I find these topics intriguing because, I have always lived in Western society, and speculated how people from different cultures lived.

It would be an honour to attend university, where I can learn the mechanics in Journalism and gain greater understanding about Journalism. Its historical background and purpose. To increase my knowledge and further develop my skills, to become a professional journalist. Following my university studies, I hope to work for a media company where I can travel and write.

Process; 

Making my Personal statement was very difficult, When I started the first thing I did was write down a list of different skills and explained them briefly, I researched online the different types of skills that you can have. and then Explained them using my own words, I also added an example of when those skills where helpful and how. This helped me towards writing my statement as I already had short paragraphs to just piece together. I also spent a while reading other examples of Personal statements to see how they constructed them. This gave me some ideas but I was still unaware how to begin my Personal statement. Luckily my teacher created a help sheet he included the questions ,key words that we could use and headers. I used the headers and answered the question after I was finish I was able to just piece them together. Unfortunately my Statement ended up being too long, so the teacher went over my work a cut a bit out but I was still a bit over. I decided to take another approach. I went to my mother and together we checked over my work and shortened it.
