After graduating high school, I had no idea what career to pursue. For my first year of
university, I explored a variety of courses in search for that one course that would
change my life and direct me through the right choices. In the search for my quest, I
got enrolled in several departments. I learned a bit about entrepreneurship,
philosophy, sociology, natural environmental sciences, statistics, information systems,
English and much more. These classes made me know more about my world, most of
all prepared me to face the challenges involved. Searching towards the right motive, I
realized that I had the passion for technology and business, which made a career in
Information Systems the right choice for me.
I learned that I enjoy the logic involved in connecting business with technology. At
first, I really considered going for pure business, and at a point, I wanted to study
computer science because of my passion for innovative technology. This influenced
my decision to pursue my undergraduate major. Through rigorous researches, I
discovered that it is best I study Information Systems due to the fact that it covers my
interest in both business and technology. I love business because it is a field that gives
you insights on how co-operation, multi-national organization and also enterprises run
their operations successfully. My love for technology supersedes everything.
Technology to me is a sense of creating innovative and qualitative structures that can
effect change positively.
Studying the Combination of technology and business was the best and most
interesting thing I have done. This has taught me to look at problems from a different
perspective. My zeal and potential towards information systems have open doors to so
many opportunities in life for me. In the year 2014 I was selected amongst many to
represent my University as its Google Student Ambassador for the year 2014/2015,
through this medium I was able to participate in worldwide activities such as the
Google Online Marketing Challenge, Google Developers, Hack Marathons and so
much more. These experiences taught me to see both sides when it comes to

problems, to critically think, speak confidently and to speak out as loud as I could to
reach the hearts of the ignorant.
My undergraduate schooling years have also taught me to love and learn. I currently
hold a good GPA; this is not as a result of innate intelligence or grade-fixation but as
a result of passion and dedication. The process of learning can be very intricate, but
certainly I believe with hard work, commitment, dedication and most of all passion,
the difficulties could be overcome with ease. For me, a challenge is a means that
forces me to bring the best out of me. In other words, I regard to my challenges as my
Deciding on a career has not been an easy task for me. But based on my experience at
the undergraduate level I believe that to me, Information systems career is the right
choice. Technology and business have given me an in-depth knowledge of how the
world works. I might sound naive, knowing that many have left their undergraduate
level with the same dream only to be knocked out by reality. I am prepared for this. I
might not be able to be the best but certainly I believe that I would be doing what I
love the most.
I want to attend The University of Stirling because it has a matchless reputation in
terms of quality of faculty, students and as well good methods of impacting
Please consider me for admission.
