thanks a million, maria
after several editing and updates there is my final essay:
The fighter, the hard worker, the energetic, the inspirational, the influencer, the deep learner......
Those words are what all who know me would call me. I really enjoy it when I hear anyone calling me "fighter", this is how I make sure that I'm delivering my message quite well. My message simply says, just have faith in God, believe in yourself and stick to your dreams, and then God will make the whole universe conspire to serve you and your goals.
In practicing to be a leader, I was the head of the HR committee in IEEE's branch in my university. I set new rules and criteria that are being applied and updated until this moment that also governed the concepts of enthusiasm, creativity and team work which made a great jump in our activity's progress and could effectively raise the awareness of the importance of extracurricular activities among the whole college's students. Another year later I got promoted to be the branch's treasurer which added a lot to me by exploring new potentials in different roles.
When I started my career, whenever I got to implement any project, I have been blessed with opportunities of being the leader of a team of technicians who were in different stages of age and experience. However, I could successfully lead them towards finishing our projects with good quality and on time with treating each one of them professionally in a way that suits their age, experience and character, which made me one of the most favourited engineers for them to work with and could destroy the stereotypical image in the minds of the board of directors that female engineers couldn't take on leadership or strenuous tasks.
During the 9 months of my diploma's scholarship at ITI, I was known for spreading positive energy, helping everyone, do everything to maintain the team spirit and friendship among my classmates to make wonderful memories, and being the most active student in class. My professors liked that I study for the sake of knowledge rather than achieving high scores and always keep discussing them in what I read in the references.
Afterwards, I offered one of my college professors my help to improve the academic content of some courses to match the labour market's demands and to share with him everything I learnt in my years of experience. He welcomed my offer. And nowadays, we're scheduling fixed times to meet and discuss any needed plans to improve the courses for undergrads.
The key is belief, what makes a leader is believing in God, his/herself, his/her goals, change, improvement and every step he/she takes to get out of the box. And to be an influencer, you have to always keep radiating positive vibes and always take an extra mile. I am confident, and I have a strong belief that this wonderful scholarship will sharpen my skills to higher heights to prove that female engineers are as strong and clever as male engineers and can prove themselves everywhere.
