Economics Personal Statement
“The curious task of economics is to demonstrate to men how little they really know about what they imagine they can design.” Frederich August Von Hayek
Through life's experiences, I have come to realize that economy affects almost everything in the world. Economics plays an important role in our daily lives. Our lives are affected by the decisions we make and the decisions taken by our government. As inhabitants on the planet Earth we are affected by the economic decisions of each other. The air we breathe, the water we drink and the environment we leave for future generations, are all affected by the economic decisions taken by the human race. Over time it has became clear to me that the people who understand the monetary and banking system are capable of understanding the decisions made by governments and the future of our society, and I want to be one of those people.
Since I was a little boy I have known how difficult life is. I daily saw the struggle my grandmother have to bring me up. I did not have an easy childhood. But I thank God for everything I have gone through in my life. It is because of all the problems I went through and difficulties I experienced, that I am who I am today, a hardworker, and the most important thing, a gratified person. In my lifetime I have been handed many responsibilities, and the skills I have built from these responsibilities include self-organization, along with teamwork and the ability to work accurately under pressure, and to never quit no matter how tough and impossible the problem would seem to be.
Through my schooling years, I have learned to be organized and always have a logical and practical way of thinking. Also as I gain experience in my life, I have developed a competitive nature, and math has always appealed to these characteristics. I have always enjoyed the exigent nature of mathematics. I find that discovering the correct answer to a mathematical problem, regardless of how difficult the challenge, extremely pleasing.
My persistence and diligence at school, and the encouraging attitude of my teachers have led me to succeed brilliantly in all of my school studies, maintaining an excellent overall grade throughout the years. I particularly enjoy working with others as a team, and doing accounting and algebraic exercises.
I believe university offers an excellent opportunity to increase my learning in a challenging environment so I am applying for a degree in economics and finance, which will enable me to acquire the skills required to understand the world of business and help me become an Investment banker and a Financial Advisor. I am extremely enjoying studying Mathematics and Economics at 'A' level, and believe that my strong mathematical conditions will help me to have an excellent basis in which to engage in the study of Economics.
I am a very active sportsman. On a few occasions I have had the pleasure to represent my school in football, volleyball and platform events and the medals, certificates and awards accomplished represent these.
From my experience and personal ambition I am confident that I have the necessary self-motivation and academic motivation to succeed in economics and finances.
