By living in adeveloping country like Bangladesh it was not an easy decision to embrace lifesciences as a career option where majority want to be a physician or engineerfor secured future. My ardor towards life sciences helped me to swim againstthe tide and to choose a career field in which I am really interested in. Mypassion for biological sciences has actually started from a thought arose in mymind when I have introduced with Life and Medical Science in my School life.
The calamitous power of the tiny creature over best living species had struckme and later endeavored me to explore the mysteries of life sciences.Later, Itook real interest in biology during my college life which led me to choose”Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology” as my undergraduate program. I havesuccessfully completed my Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) from the department ofGenetic Engineering and Biotechnology of Shahjalal University of Science andTechnology (SUST), Bangladesh with obtaining a CGPA of 3.56 on a scale of 4.00(1.7 in University of Bonn grading scheme).
Meanwhile, Ivolunteered to take part in seminar and Symposia and also involved with variousvoluntary activities which have equipped me with a good skill of oratoricalpresentation and organizing capabilities.Studying GeneticEngineering and Biotechnology in my undergraduate program formed the basis ofmy determination towards gaining an in-depth knowledge in the field of Biology.During my Bachelor program, I studied various courses like Microbiology, Biochemistry,Proteomics, Genomics and Bioinformatics, Techniques in Molecular Biology andMolecular Diagnostics, Molecular Biology, Medical and PharmaceuticalBiotechnology, Animal Biotechnology, Environmental Biotechnology, Protein andEnzyme technology which encouraged me to decide strongly to pursue furtheracademic education in Biological Science specially Life and Medical Sciences.
Ihave accomplished several practical classes on Biochemistry, Microbiology,Techniques in Molecular Biology, Medical and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology,Immunology and Virology, Proteomics, genomics and Bioinformatics etc. In thefourth year, when I was studying Medical and Pharmaceutical Biotechnology, Igot much interest in medical sciences. I came to know many things about Disease,its diagnosis and therapy.
So, I am highly interested and motivated to pursuemy studies in the field of Life and Medical Sciences as there is a option to domasters thesis with disease.I attended manyseminars and symposium on Life Sciences. For the completion of my Bachelordegree, I engaged as a Research Assistant (RA) for the period of six months(March to August, 2012) in the project titled, “Improvement of salt andsubmergence tolerance rice through Genetic Engineering approach to bring foodsecurity with environmental safety in Bangladesh” in the Genetic Engineeringlaboratory, Shahjalal University of Science and Technology, Sylhet, Bangladesh.
I am confident that Ihave the preparations and potentials to prove an asset to your graduate programas a graduate student. I have taken the decision to study in Life and MedicalSciences due to its multidisciplinary nature. In today’s world, Life andMedical Sciences has great potentialities in every field of life. Life andMedical Sciences can bring an ultimate change in understanding the complexbiological process in health and disease. Life and Medical Sciencesis anexcellent program with outstanding research facility provided by University ofBonn. The curriculum of this program is very good.
Students can achieveessential and fundamental knowledge about Biology which is very important forPhD study.. My experiences, skills, and work ethic, makeme an ideal candidate for your program. I have no doubt that earning a Master’sdegree in Life and Medical Sciences from your esteemed institution is amajor step in achieving my goals, while developing my knowledge and skillstoward personal and professional success.
I look forward, with greatanticipation, to becoming one of the successful graduates of your program as Iprepare for the challenges and opportunities I would be facing in my career asa research scientist.My main aim is to contribute in the development of mycountry and the people through my knowledge. I believe that the chosen programwill give me an opportunity to gain world class education and help me to becomean excellent world citizen.
