Graduate / I am applying for a master degree scholarship and I need to write a self introduction. [18]

vangiespen

THere is no limit of words, my self introduction should be within a page though.
I have split out the first paragraph into 3. look at what I have got so far:

My entire life, I always had a passion for math and computers. Since high school my professional field always was clear for me, I have always wanted to become a computer scientist and create new technological solutions. In fact, I spent big part of my youth in front of a computer, learning how to code; however, I do not regret about it whatsoever; on the contrary, this premature curiosity enabled me to start working really soon.

My first important achievement was in 2010 when I got the 2nd best score among hundreds of candidates to enter in the university. Since the beginning of my undergrad studies I stayed in touch with professors and their research works. This awoke in me the interest for software development and intelligent IT solutions. When I was 19-years-old, I had an internship using the programming language PHP through the university I attended. At the age of twenty, I have started to work as a software developer at QAT Global, an American company with headquarters located in Brazi. As we followed the Scrum development methodology we used to have daily meeting with our customers, therefore my English skills was indispensable. Those early professional contacts were valuable experiences to my professional development because I could feel that I have chosen the right career for me.

Although I started to work as a software developer and analyst really soon, I always dedicated in my academic background. As instance, in order to expand my degree in System analysis and development I applied for the program science without border (Cięncias sem fronteiras), where the best Brazilian students and researchers are selected by the government to complete part of their under graduation studies abroad. In consequence of my academic performance and my English I was among those students, and then I went to Toronto for one year and seven months to study at Seneca.

Thank you a lot in advance.

I hope I have been improving!

Is it ok?

First thank you for attention .

I think that I should mention my abroad experience. Maybe introduction is not the right place to do so, but I believe it is good to show that I have met people from different cultural backgrounds, isnt it?

i look forward to hearing your ideas.

thanks.

4th sentence: Do you mean despite your young age, you already have job experience in this field?
5th sentence: Place a comma after "development". Did you take the course or did you "major" in computer programming and analysis? If this was


- Yes, despite my young age, I already a good job experience.
- I attended only 3 semester as an exchange student, it was a program to improve our graduation in Brazil.

thank you so much for your attention. My introduction looks quite better.

Graduate / I am applying for a master degree scholarship and I need to write a self introduction. [18]

Hello everyone,

as is said in the title, I am applying for a scholarship in Korea; however, it has been really tough to write the introduction of my self-intro.

Please, Look what I've got so far.

My entire life I always have 2 passions, math and computer. So the task of choosing my professional field was really easy. Since high school i have the goal of become a computer scientist and create new technologies solutions and despite my young age, 23 years, I already gathered a reasonable job experience. In order to expand my degree in analysis and system development I have attended the course Computer programming and analysis in Toronto as an exchanged student by the Brazilian program science without borders for almost 2 years.

I would like to to add some informations such as :
- say how developed the korean technologies are
- say that I am self-taught, team player and mature
- show my desire to study in korea

however, i could not find a nicely way to do so.

I hope you guys can help me out.. thank you in advance.
