Although the application is only at the end of the year, I'm already doing it, thanks for the help :)
Studying in Korea would open my horizons
My name is Isabela Silva de Campos, I am 17 years old and I am Brazilian. I was born in Caçapava, in the interior of São Paulo. I always liked the technological and industrial area, because since my childhood I watched my grandfather to fix objects and create a lot of things that made our life easier. Although I prefer subjects that involve the area of mathematics I do not have difficulties with the other subjects, therefore I do not see the study like something obligatory, but rather pleasurable. I am dedicated, I like to work in a group and I do everything I can to help others.
My mother and father are divorced and I currently live with my mother and grandmother. Until I was 14 years old I had only studied in private schools, but when I went to high school, my mother was demissed and my father was not well financially, so I had to go to a public school. I decided to apply for a school where the high school is integrated with the certificate course, in my case it was a mechanic course, I took the test to join it, and I was in 10th place and every month I received diplomas of the best student.
To conclude my school education I am doing a project of a prosthesis, aiming at the great amount of accidents in factories and the consequences of a life without some member.
Asian culture really helped me since my childhood, because I was very shameful, so as a way of creating subjects with other people I started to watch Asian cartoons and dramas, which definitely transformed my life because I was really interested in a totally different reality of which I lived, it was a new language, new habits, everything new.
I chose mechanical engineering, because I have previous knowledge of the area, thanks to my school, and this made me acquire a great curiosity about how things work, or what it would be like if I did this and then did that to improve the use of something. I believe in the power of machines, because I know how they make the man move forward, they create great products, generate great profits, but the advances never stop, constantly new mechanical designs have to be made and that is exactly what I love, how something good can get better and more technological.
I see this career as a great challenge as well, since it is composed of a large number of men, and I, as a woman, I am sure that I know how to do to stand out and overcome these barriers so that the female voice becomes more present in the areas industries.
Studying in Korea would open my horizons in immeasurable ways, because it is a country with a rich culture, it presents excellent industries, great machines, it is a country that believes and has been transformed by education and in constant advance, besides being a country where security is made very present, which brings me a lot of confidence.
