I was once told to “to find your voice you would have
to first find your expertise.” I believe that I have found my voice in
engineering. The engineering industry is still rising in popularity and so
technological advancements are being made every single day at an exponential
rate. The creativity behind every single method of manufacturing and designs implemented
into these crafts are really what intrigues me and drives me to strengthen and
master the mechanical and the decision making sides of mathematical problems.

These interests of mine started on my 10th birthday when I
received a book called “Everything You Need to Know About Science”
and it was the space section I enjoyed reading the most. I remember reading
about robots in space and asking myself “How do they actually make these
spacecrafts to land in space?”  As
my knowledge on the manufacturing process of these crafts are of basic levels,
I am keen on enhancing my strongest fields, physics and maths, to develop an
understanding of the practical world.

From an early age I have always been interested on how
engineers enable machines to work. I even broke into my Playstation portable
just to see what a motherboard looked like and see the arrangements of circuits
which allows the playstation to work. This alone just shows my curiosity and
passion towards this subject and my determination to succeed.

I took my first step into the engineering world when I spent
two years on a STEM programme during my early stages of secondary school. I
have gained basic experience needed to help me realise my desire for
engineering. From this, I took on an engineering course at GSCE where I used
several machines such as a lathe, a pillar drill and etc. I participated in
building a go-cart from scratch which was one of my biggest accomplishments so
far in engineering. My passion for aerospace developed a lot more during this
course as it was brought to my attention that there’s many different methods
engineers  from the aerospace industry
use that can improve the efficiency of aircrafts. For example, blended wing
bodies is proven to cut fuel consumption for aircrafts  by up to a third because the airframe is so
smooth it reduces turbulent airflow, thus reducing drag. I also visited
Kingston University during this course for an engineering programme. There I
met with the astronaut, Helen Sharman, as she explained to me about space life.

During my free time, I sometimes follow up on the astrophysicist,
Neil deGrasse Tyson, on his documentary like “Origins of life and how it
all began”. His insight in physics as a whole really inspires me and has
helped me realise my passion to be successful in the field of aeronautical
engineering. His whole motto where “science is true whether or not you
believe it” allowed me to realise that it is well worth the time and
effort to master the aerospace industry in my later life.

Outside of school I have participated in the UCL young
engineers programme where I was provided with further guidance for my career
goals.  It was particularly helpful in
the aerospace timeslot as they explained how aerospace engineers design their
aircrafts and also how they analyse these aircrafts using a specialised
computer program. This was of huge value to me as I never was taught these
things at school. I also took part in the national citizen service programme,
which is chaired by former prime minister David Cameron. I was encouraged to
help the local community over the summer whether it was to raise money for charity
or to educate the younger generations. This gave me the opportunity to immerse
myself and build on my leadership skills alongside a team full of strong minded

From all these experience so far in my life, it is clear
that I want to pursue a career in aeronautical engineer and I believe I have
the persistence and the tenacity to help turn my engineering goals into
reality. I am looking forward to the challenges universities has to offer.
