Multimedia Design Personal Statement

After my work experience at Blitz The Net, a web site design company, I found I had a great interest in web site design and multimedia design. I started to enjoy going to work and not seeing it as a chore

It seemed only natural to choose a degree which interested me. After I completed my own website I realized that web design is the occupation I would like to follow on successful completion of my degree

My work experience taught me a lot about the computer industry especially the processes that are involved in designing and implementing a web site. I also worked as part of the full-time design team and produced work that was used in a final product of a brief from a client

Working part-time on a Saturday in a jewellery shop has taught me many skills. These include teamwork, people skills and patience. I have to deal with the public in my job so it has taught me to be patient and calm in hostile situations. I also have to meet targets and deadlines in my work. These new skills will prove very valuable for my time at university

In school I have received many Headmaster Commendations and high attendance rewards. I have also received a Head of Department Award for graphic design. I have participated in the school's sponsored walk, which raised money for a local disabled charity. I found this very enjoyable and it was helping people as well

Outside of school I enjoy reading non-fiction books, especially those based on true stories. I prefer to read computing magazines as I like to keep up to date with new technology. I also enjoy listening to music especially rap and hip-hop

My real love is computers and the Internet. I enjoy working and playing on computers. I like to keep informed about what is happening in the computer industry and the game industry

I also enjoy traveling the world and seeing the mix of cultures. I enjoy experiencing different ways of life and trying not to be a tourist. By this I mean I like to try to speak the local language and observe their traditions. I think this gives me a better experience of the countries I visit and it also broadens my mnd to different environments and paces of life

The major sport I enjoy is skiing. I have represented Tower Hamlets borough in the London youth games at skiing, which was a valuable team-building exercise. We missed the semi-final by only one point

Although we didn't win the experience was brilliant. Golf and Fishing are two sports that I have started to participate in since they help me to relax. I also workout at the gym and enjoy jogging around my local park with my father. Although I play rarely, I also enjoy playing football. Playing these sports has taught me to persevere with things even if I find them hard to do as well as giving me the drive to do things

My work experience in industry makes me feel that I am suited to a web design/ multimedia design degree. I feel I can cope with the workload of university, living away from home and being able to discipline myself. I am also ready for the challenge of a life-changing experience like living in a different region, meeting new people and reaching my aim of a career in web/multimedia design.

Isn't a 'non-fiction book'

Isn't a 'non-fiction book' essentially a true story because the content is non-fictional?

good statement!

good statement!

I quite like this one, it

I quite like this one, it kept me interested. I just thought there was a bit of additional info that wasnt needed, indeed a non fiction book is essentially true, do the university need to know what day of the week you work? Also, if it were me I wouldnt mention football as something I didnt do often, either cut out the ' i dont play often' or dont mention it as it might show a lack of commitment. Other than that really good.

Good statement, I agree. But

Good statement, I agree. But you should let someone check your paragraphing - the first sentence of a paragraph should introduce the subject matter of the rest. Some of your paragraphs could be put together as they contain related subject matter. For example, the two about your competition do not need to be seperate. It makes it easier to read. Otherwise, a very engaging and interesting read.

very niceeeeeee

badly thought through.

it looks like alot of

it looks like alot of unnessary information has been added to bulk it up

i enjoy, i like etc. etc.

i enjoy, i like etc. etc. this person continually uses 'i' at the start of sentences which is the wrong thing to do, think of personal statements as a piece of creative writing. I found this example useless and pointless

this was good but just doesn

this was good but just doesn't seem very "honest?"
