Everyone has their own aim in life. Sometimes it appears in natural way. Sometimes life events cause to happen unexpectedly.
When I was 13 years old, I took the exam to enter the specialized high school for advanced students, but I failed. At that time I felt a bitter feeling of unconsciousness/ disappointment. Only thanks to my parents' enforcement, I understood that I had to study hard in order to get rid of poverty, so it was time to put definite goal in my life. I had to be changed, proactive and a man who is considered as a successful and influential person in society.
To get Bachelor's degree on the basis of full grant at one of the top universities in my country was the first result of my attempts. During the study on my undergraduate level, I succeeded in obtaining knowledge and skills in a wide range. Except from special majors, theoretical aspects of economy, finance, foreign economic affairs and policy, i had an opportunity to learn about psychology, logics, law, history, and world geography. Without any doubt, I can say I was able to do my best by showing my outstanding skills during the study period. For example, when I was in my third year, I made the presentation on the theme of "Development of CIS countries depends on Economic Integration" at the international conference held at our university by our teaching staff cooperated with the professors of Moscow State University. It was an incredible event in my life and everyone at the meeting appreciated influential speech, and marked me as a future leader.
As starting to work in the area of export transactions of cotton-fiber, acquired luggage of knowledge was due to enable me to demonstrate my leadership skill. Afterwards, being in a position of HR supervisor at Urgench branch of the Coca-Cola Company gave me additional commitment to lead other supervising staff to deal with some system issues. Before me, HR management system used to solve questions based on other departments' initiatives, when it concerned staff conducting as well as issues related to staff rotation. I started working cooperatively with heads of departments so that we were able to solve some root pent-up problems relating to a factor of incompatibility of work with the studies or capabilities of employees. Once I released some employees working in sales department actually had an academic background in the field of quality and laboratory. When I interviewed them, it seemed that they were fulfilling their tasks not with enthusiasm, but for the sake of money or threat to lose the job. On the other hand, these types of workers did not dare to discuss about that theme with their supervisors. In such kind of situations, I did my best to convince our directing staff and managers to follow my strategy in order to raise effectiveness of the work. I managed to attain my goal in this position by my decision-making and leadership qualities. This attitude influenced simple workers and our managing staff as well.
So I look forward to demonstrating my qualities as a Chevening Scholar in the UK universities with various professionals of world culture members.
