Growing up, I have always had an affinity for mathematics and its real-life applications. This innate curiosity and fascination with numbers and their stories is why I have applied for a degree in Computer Science and ECE at Waterloo. The Faculty of Math & Engineering would give me the tools necessary to create systems and software to tackle problems I am passionate about, and to help others.
As someone who learns through action, be it tinkering with a Raspberry Pi or coding a music streaming API, Waterloo's Co-op would offer me invaluable guidance and opportunities to hone my craft. Through programs like Velocity and GreenHouse, I can utilize my knowledge and experience gained into innovative ideas that challenge and engage me. Considering these factors, alongside my passion and dedication to STEM, lead me to believe that I would be an excellent fit for Waterloo's CS and ECE programs.
What changes would you all suggest I make to the essay to make it more distinct than other applications?
