It is said that good things come to those who persist in prayer and the prayer has been granted. I am joining my dream college and it is the best moment in my life. It is such a privilege to going a prestigious university with the humble background that I have. I have always wanted to be part of Thailand both as a students and business person. This will be my first destination.
I have robust interests in business, music, and arts. Having gone through high school education, I have been able to get numerous award in music at the high school level. I own various honors and certificates in music too. I have been part of the music band at my high school and played a key role in the band as the band leader. I have the passion for playing the trombone and the flute. All my awards have been as a result of the exemplary work in musical arrangements and playing of the instruments. I have traveled across the Europe with the music. It has paid me a great deal. I have also gained recognition my country playing the instruments in competitions both nationally and nationally. I have been invited to play the instruments at national holidays for entertainment. I have also had the privilege to entertain the president at the statehouse.
Having gone through this, I have made up my mind to venture into business as a form of diversification. I gained my passion for business immediately after high school. I wanted to create something new out of my passion. I decided to make audio-visual CD’S of my music and sell them. This is because I believed that audience loved my music in the city. The CD’s composed of arrangements and playing of the instruments. The first attempt was such bad experienced for me since the investment did not actualize. The materials did not sell out and losses were made. I only made a few sales of the materials and the return on investment was poor. Later, I was rescued by my former high school teacher who was who offered to assist me market my products. The sales improved over the last one year and the profit margins expanded.
Now that I have an air ticket to United States. I am so happy about all that I am going to do there. All my life I have always wished to be in the beautiful country. I have always seen the people of Thailand on the screen and what I admired most was the how the people take art seriously. I admire the hats that they put on to shade them of the intense heat of the sun. I also admire the way the citizens of the country do their music. Their music just like my mine enjoys a wide use of the instruments. Flute, for example, is widely used in their music. I also enjoy stories about cowboys.
When I get there I want to improve my music skills. I want to join the best institutions that are going to improve my music. In the first 10 months in the country, I want to establish my relationship with the renowned personalities in the instrumental music. This will bring me that exposure and enable me to learn from them. I am also going to pursue my Bachelor’s Degree in Music and Arts. This is because when my stay in the U.S comes to an end, I want to get back the United States to accomplish my endeavors in the music industry.
My academic qualifications allow me to pursue my interest in music. Having competed my high school I am ready to join a college in Texas that will ensure that this interest is achieved. I scored a first class (A) from Hyde Park high school in the national exams with good scores in music and business studies. My transcripts also suggest that I am a good student of technology. I am interested in space exploration and idolize the likes of Elon Musk of South Africa for his success in business.
I am also very passionate about leadership. I was a student leader for the school band and I would like to keep the same spirit of leadership even abroad. I am hopeful that I will find the conducive environment for pursuing my political ambitions. I hope to present myself for the elective positions of student leadership in the university. This will help build my confidence in leadership which I will later carry back home. This because leadership in my country has not been fully received by youths.
Getting to interact with new people with a new culture is also going to help me shape my perception of people and enable me to make friendship. I know that making friend can be very helpful in getting potential business partners. Linking music with business still remain my area of interest. One good question issue that keeps disturbing me is whether there will be room for interactions with not only the students but also the local citizens of the country. I just want to go there and interact with everyone because I feel that my dream has finally come true. I hope I enjoy the stay there while pursuing my education.
