Everybody despite their sex, socio-economic status, ethnicity and religion have the right to dream and make their dream come true. Belonging to a middle class family, I also have dream of studying a Master's degree in UK. And this is an attempt to make my dream land on my real career path. My parents have two kids, me and my younger sister. My father is a National Level Chess Player. He has won National Chess Championship thrice in his career. Despite this achievement, the other side is, he is never involved in any income generation activity. Our household expense is dependent upon the rent of four rooms. Alongside, I have been working after completion of my undergraduate to support my family. I consider myself responsible for taking care of family and fulfilling their needs because I am the eldest kid and also because my sister is ten year junior than me who is appearing her grade ten exam; school leaving certificate this year. Because of my background, I have come to realize that acquiring knowledge is the only weapon I have available; I am resolved to wield it effectively to achieve my goal. Therefore, this first reason why I need this scholarship.
I grew up in a country where female are not prioritized for higher education. They are usually endorsed into marriage relationship which thereafter they turned into homemaker (housewife) depending on their husband for everything and their activity limits taking care of family. The second reason for deserving this scholarship is, this scholarship will renowned me as public health nutritionist and ultimately support me gain independency in terms of financial need.
The third reason I define for attaining this scholarship in studying Msc in Public health Nutrition is because my country Nepal is in much need of nutritional assistance. Demographic Health Survey of 2011 which reports 41 percent of under five children suffers from malnutrition (stunting) provides evidence for the need of nutritional assistance. The reason for the situation is partly because of poverty and partly due to lack of awareness. I actually encountered with the situation in my life when I worked in hard to reach district of Nepal. I could see under five children and pregnant women with a very low weight. Based on this experience and as a Public Health Nutritionist, I desire to be a part of government and health organization in planning and implementing nutritional intervention. Further, I want to play a role of change agent towards the community people to bring improvement in their food choices and eating behavior. Moreover, I believe I will be capable for project management as well since I have already acquired experience in program implementation at various organizations.
The earthquake of 2015 has turned the poor nutritional status into worse especially among children and women groups. I recognize this scholarship is a way to step ahead to reduction in malnutrition and contribute toward victims of earthquake as well which is a forth reason for being awarded this scholarship.
My ethnicity is Newar which belong to Indigenous-disadvantageous. People of this group are underprivileged in the society. Therefore, this group needs much support and attention.
Accreditation as Public Health Nutritionist is an asset to me and I can use it to work in hospitals and organizations where I can counsel and advise people on need nutrient and diet based on their diet related illness. The pattern of diet related illness is likely increasing. Three percent of the adult Nepalese population has diabetes.
My objective to enroll in Msc Public Health Nutrition is also to obtain exposures to interactive practical sessions and various workshops, attain experience of learning in new environment which will distinctly grow my confidence level and further my leadership skills in project management. I believe in myself and I believe, with this scholarship, it will give me the foundation I need to build a better me, and enable me to become a person who makes a difference in this world.
I intend to seek prosperous dissertation using secondary data (of demographic health survey) of nutritional aspect for further analysis which is a part of this course. The knowledge of using SPSS and Microsoft excel and word in me will definitely be a way for strengthening it.
I am attracted to the master program at XXXXX for precisely this reason. Only XXXX offers the kind of collaborative experience that suits my personal needs and professional goals. I am excited about the program's direction and its emphasis on practical application. I appreciate that every course offers the opportunity for independent research, and that the faculty is open to student suggestions for improvement. The flexibility and patience of the faculty and the talent of the students makes LJMY a singular choice for my master degree.
I hope to find myself at the welcoming doors of XXXXX this September, to approach the unique manuscripts of the XXXX's library with awe compounded by anticipation, and then enter into the finest academic community available to cultivate my research and contribute my voice.
