Can you imagine living in a country which saved the world from communism but burns in civil war for more than three decades and war still have victims as it is globally ranked as 2nd insecure country of the world after Syria (Global Peace Index 2015), called fantastically corrupt country of the world by David Cameron (English prime minister) Ranked 3rd most corrupt country in the world (corruption perception Index 2015 by transparency international) and ranked 24th poorest country of the world (global finance management 2015) even this rating shows an elicited economy of narcotics production which is ranked first (World Drug Report 2015 by UNODC) Where international community forced to interfere for surrounding the threat within the country and save their own people. Welcome to Afghanistan. but most of the might not know that this country is also the land of scholars like Avicenna, Sayed Jamaluddin and Rumi, the country with 5000 years of history, Untapped minerals worth more than three trillion of dollars, natural water resources requirement of the region, beautiful and attractive nature, gentle and wise people.
I have witnessed and shared the pain of people during the war, migrations and revolution I've been always trying to find a way to contribute in saving the nation and the country, by taking membership of social youth volunteers, participating in conferences, roundtables seminars and have organized, managed and led several social events through media and social youths volunteer. Since the country has been in a new phase of global sight it is time to change by building the capacities, analyzing the situation and implementing the change, why I shouldn't be the part.
I have understood several things from my life experience such as adversity & poverty from migration, extremism, oppression, tyranny and terror from war; disbelief & instability from corruption; hope & power from education; ability to change & pleasure of sharing joy from work. Now would like to have more dreams.
Working in a corrupt and war thorn community have its difficulties but as a committed citizen and an energetic young selected the difficult task since I have grown with problems and do not enjoy easy tasks which are for millions of lazy people. Analyzing the presidential election of Afghanistan where Mohammad Ashraf Ghani a professional guy has been able to gather people and acquire their trust by providing logical explanation of community problems and solution however had no war background in extremist war thorn country has motivated me more than ever and showed that if you work hard, be specific, have plans and have practical version of solutions the people is on your side or simply if you know where are you going everyone will follow you.
Based on my experience at public and private organization I have come to know that the best way to serve people is to bring changes in policies, develop practical ways, create transparent and accountable systems with the use of best practices of other countries and adapt it to local conditions, and this is the only way to make the ground for every compatriot to serve in public and private sectors.
I believe in "if you really desire something nobody can stop you, strong desire produces strong result & weak desires produce a weak result".
During my seven years of professional experience I have acquired several skills such as at lower level Organizing, prioritizing, paying attention to details, goal setting, willing to ask for help, disciplining and at medium level improved my problem solving, stress management, negotiation and decision-making skills the attached certificates and letter of recommendation proves that.
Within the current condition I think that Masters of public administration is made for me and I hope by continuing education at university of Calgary which one of the prestigious universities of the world ranked 33rd globally with famous alumnus and great scholars would improve my competencies in governance, policy making, conflict resolution & strategic planning and would able me in return to my country handful.
I hope the above skills and experience will equip me for the university life and this personal statement supports my application that I am an enthusiastic disciplined and hardworking student who would enjoy the aspects of university life.
