Computer Science is one of the most important fields of Science and it is also my future. By applying to Computer Science in NUS, I want to be well-prepared for the future.
I found my passion and ability in Computer Science as soon as I was in high school. When I was in grade 11 ad 12, I participated in the Vietnam National competition for senior student in Mathematics, and I got two incentive awards. After that I had a chance to learn about algorithm and computer and soon they became my most favorite subject. It encourages me to participate in the National competition for solving problem by using scientific calculator and I got an incentive award. These awards have proved my ability and knowledge in Mathematics.
In high school, I am very good at not only Mathematics but also other Natural Science subjects such as Physics and Chemistry. I have built up a good knowledge in Science and it helps me to have an effective learning method. I think the knowledge I acquired in high school would be useful for my learning in university.
When I chose my major in University, I hesitated about learning Mathematics or Computer Science. However, I did found my great passion in Computer Science, and I feel more interested in applying Computer to real life than doing Mathematics research. The first time I read a book named "How to solve a problem in Computer?" ( Vietnamese book), I found this is my future. In this book, I first knew about Artificial Intelligent, an interesting field of Computer Science, and I desire to understand and study it.
I believe with an excellent academic background and a strong passion, I will take my best learning and advantages in NUS.
