Computer Science Personal Statement
I am intending to study a computing related subject as I think that the future will be all about computers and they are also becoming ever more necessary in all jobs and everyday life.
Throughout school, my interest in computers has always been second to none as I took standard grade and higher and achieved good grades for both. I do enjoy working with computers and find them interesting and fascinating and hope to further this by doing a suitable course at university.
During my time at school I have had the privilege of being a monitor in 3rd year, voted house captain in 5th year and becoming a senior prefect in 6th year. As part of being house captain I was also on the house council, this involved discussing things that we could do to better our house and the school.
I have also been appointed the schools personnel director for the schools young enterprise scheme, which involves keeping checks on the other members of the team to see what they are up to. I hope that this show that I am a capable and responsible person
Also during my school career I have also been involved in many sporting activities. I have been a member of my house football and basketball teams as well as participating in the school sports in my younger years. Outside of school I also play many sports, football, cricket, basketball and golf.
I am also in the schools charities group, for which we work on good and worthwhile causes in the school and are currently thinking of other projects that we can do to help out the local community. I am also involved in the production of the school yearbook this year
Away from school and sports, I also enjoy my current jobs, an ambient/checkout operator at Scotmid Brechin and working at Brechin City Football Club on match days.
I enjoy indie and hip-hop music. I also like to watch TV when I have time, the news and sporting programmes are what watch mostly, to keep up to date with what's going on in the world. I also enjoy reading a good book and the local paper.
