Five lives. It would be an honorFive lives. It would be an honor

Five years ago, my family and I moved to the United States. I was in high school and my first step was to learn English, gradually I learned English and the other education and technology often made me wonder how things work. My curiosity grew, and I tried to learn more about how human body works. Since then, I wanted to study biology and the chemistry behind the function of a human body, leading to my career path to becoming a neurosurgeon.Specifically, I want to help construct any research related to human brain and its functions. Personally, the function of nervous system, the brain and the spine amazes me, and I want to learn and explore something that I have been working hard for. I have always tired to set my standards high and have been encouraged to achieve anything that I desire for. Neurosurgery is one of the most competitive field to pursue, however, my relentless curiosity for neurology motivates to becoming one. Often times I’ve been discouraged by family friends saying “Neurosurgery is a horrible and most difficult career to pursue in.” Everytime I hear that, I ask myself if this is what I want to do, would I be able to commit to it. It would still be my responsibility to make sure I thoroughly explore other fields before I decide on neurosurgery. My unyielding character and my decision still wants to pursue neurosurgery. Neurosurgery would be a field, which would allow me to research on an expanding neuroscience field and the unique access to human brain and spine. A career as a neurosurgeon would not only let me do something that I enjoy but also offer me the reward of helping others, saving lives and bringing a positive change in patients’ lives. It would be an honor for me to take care of the patients and their families during their most difficult part of their lives.Upon choosing my major, I soon came to realize that A&M has a better biochemistry program that the school I am currently enrolled in. There are opportunities and programs at A&M that will allow me to achieve my goals. My reasons for transferring are mostly academic. I have made many some good friends at UTD, and have studied with some great professors. However, I do not have any major non-academic reason for being interested in A&M. I learnt that college is completely different than high school, communicating with professors, making a good reputation among students and professors is as important as studying and making good grades. I originally applied to UTD because it was comfortable and closer to my house, which made me feel like home. Now, I would like to push myself to experience living on my own and learn to stand on my own feet, explore the areas that I am unfamiliar with. As my transcript shows, I have done fairly well at UTD and I am assured that I can meet the academic challenges at A&M. I know, I would learn more and grow at A&M, and the biochemistry program perfectly matches my academic interests and career goals as a professional.
