When I first gazed through the eyepiece lens of a microscope to observe simple cells taken from my very own cheek, I was simply amazed. How could such minute structures be the functional units of life? At that moment my love for the biological side of science was born. As the years passed I learned more and more, and then I came upon the DNA. Possessing the instructions for making a complete organism, from bacteria to us humans, DNA was the blueprint of life. My appreciation for the wonders of life keeps increasing every day, and I hope to somehow improve life, participate in medicinal research or help to unlock more about the mysteries of life.
From the day I first discovered the magnificent and intricate structure of a cell, I have been gripped with curiosity about the workings of life. I dream to one day be a part of research involving biochemistry, or even discover something new myself. Being given the chance to be accepted into the Bachelor of Science program, I will be one step closer to obtaining my dream.
