Forensic Science Personal Statement Example 1

What initially drew me to forensic science arose from childhood intrigue into the intricacies of life science. This interest flourished greatly because since my childhood as I have been surrounded by science books like anatomy, chemistry etc because my uncle is a doctor and my mother studied pharmacy and I have always shown an interest towards these things and this passion has grown a deeper appreciation for the many challenges of such an interdisciplinary career.

With my uncle I had the opportunity to be in the presence of a emergencies in the hospital with the arrival of injured people and I was also in the presence of an autopsy which was really attracting and because of these opportunities that I have had I have been more interested in studying forensics. These activities to test this desire all of which have further reinforced my aspiration to study forensics. These experiences have encouraged my personal development and facilitated a profoundly informed insight into the level of empathy, compassion, enthusiasm and stamina required to be a good forensic.

I am very interested in the body, DNA and also I like to solve problems, I feel that I would not be bothered by the work environment and also that at time the materials may be unpleasant. I enjoy science and realise that I may often need to work in laboratory settings within a small team, also it is important not to become emotionally involved in this career. I have affinities for music and sport which are fully intergraded into my life, requiring a continual refinement of my time management.

I played the violin for 5 years in school, art is also a passion of mine and fitness is very important to me, I swim 250m and enjoy sports including basketball, tennis, netball, badminton. I am aware of the social sacrifices of a busy forensic career, the continual academic commitment required and the importance of being well- rounded motivated individual with excellent interpersonal abilities.
In college I have been a class rep for 2 years, in secondary I was also a monitor.

As a class rep with many responsibilities such as making myself available to members of the class, attending school council this experience has been enjoyable, fulfilling and productive as I have learned a lot through this time. In my secondary schooling I earned a certificate of achievement in the economics of staying in school program, I participated in the 2004 summer school, completed an intensive one day seminar in study skills. I also completed a 2 weeks work experience in a doctors surgery where I helped at reception and assisted the doctors and nurses.

I enjoyed the customers contact besides using the filling system and also booking appointments. Working along the staff I found the work interesting and was not bothered by the work environment, I choose this as I was considering a career In medicine but in which I have found related opportunities and decided that I wanted to be a forensic. Furthermore the challenge of using logical reasoning in an environment that demands a personal dedication attracts me immensely.

By studying forensic I will not only help others, but I will be pursuing a vocation to which I truly aspire. After doing forensic I will be hoping to work as a scene of crime officer as I would like to be in a realistic field environment which is interesting, challenging and enjoyable as I like to be active and meeting new people.
