I work very hard on each statement that I produce because  I trust you as well to recommend me to your friends and colleagues if you are very pleased with your statement. 

MS, Masters, Computer Science, Japan

January 7, 2013

From the time I was introduced to the rudiments of Computer Science, I have excelled in the study of algorithms, programming languages and data processing.  Increasing my depth of knowledge in Computer Science through active research and perhaps teaching assistantships and or tutoring, I will become fully equipped to bring my goals for the future to fruition, first and foremost of which are to complete a graduate program, and laying the foundation for a rewarding career as a software development project manager.

 Our lives and careers seem linear on paper, despite our choices.  When in Vancouver, I was taking an introductory course in International Trade, and attending a few courses in computer school.  Being introduced to website development, Photoshop, Flash, html, Illustrator and other packages sparked a passion for computer science within me.  Even after returning to Japan, I felt a longing to continue my computer science education.  Turning to XXU was more than a logical choice; it was only natural.  To date, I have been increasingly impressed by the amazing faculty, diverse student body and a curriculum that is highly relevant and broad in its scope.  I can think of no better place to complete my graduate education in, nor other place I would rather develop myself in.

 And now I have been left all the more eager to increase my depth of understanding in such areas as programming, database management/creation and networking.  While I am aiming to make relevant and valuable contributions within reputable software development firm, my life’s focus has a new added dimension that has made me completely reassess my direction and, now, my legacy.  This coming May, my life will be changed forever, the gift of a little boy entering my life, my firstborn child.  Nothing would bring me greater fulfillment than to be not only a good father, but also a role model he can be proud of, as I enter into a fruitful career.

 Coming from Japan, and having lived and been educated in three different countries, I have a worldview that is quite different from my academic peers.  Having been educated in Japan, as well as living, working, and completing education here in the US, I am able to interact effectively with many people; combined with this is my ability to speak two languages fluently.  As a result, I am able to speak confidently in front of groups of people, and am very comfortable in my own skin.  This is what I bring to the student body, one in which I anticipate many opportunities for group assignments, teamwork and projects coupled with a solid foundation in Computer Science, and near-perfect GPA.  Moreover, as a future software developer, I anticipate the need to interact with clients from many backgrounds.  Given my cultural competency and superior education, I will be a very valuable component of the multidisciplinary development team.

 The prospect of a quality graduate-level Computer Science education is incredibly exciting to me.  This is my field, where I feel fulfilled and aim to leave my mark in.  Thank you for your time and consideration.
