In the next ten years, I see myself having graduated a PhD in Biochemistry, my interested field from great university. My dream is to discover new innovations that can help better our humanity and life as we know it. I not only want to do research but I want to teach my findings by becoming a professor; I love sharing knowledge with others.

Embodying my outlook for the future, Stanford is the only place in my vision. Your prestigious school is a world-renowned university with strong academic programs in biochemistry, my choice of major. Stanford has the best environment; outstanding professors, diverse and creative students, extracurricular activities and wonderful campus are all fascinating for me. I would be honored to study and attain my doctorates degree from this school. Besides the above reasons, I strongly want to participate in STEP. I feel Stanford has great opportunities for Thai students. Every year, I've applied for this program, I feel closer to Stanford. If I am accepted, it will be my first time to go abroad; my one and only chance to see and experience a new world. I wish Stanford is my first place "To make the wind of my freedom blow" and to expand my prospects for my academics and my life.

PS. Do I choose forum[Essay & Term Papers] correctly?

Thank you very much EF_Kelvin!

Can anyone tell me about

"My dream is to discover new innovations that can help better our humanity and life as we know it ." I don't understand this phrase, what does it mean??????

And I just know, this program organized by the Thai-American Intercultural Society (THAIS), a registered student group in Stanford University, and not by the University itself. So, I change my sentence in Question3

... I strongly want to participate in STEP. I feel Stanford supports opportunities for Thai students. Every year, I've applied for this program, I feel closer to Stanford.

Is it OK?

Please check my 2nd draft, How's about it???
