I was the quixotic type as a child. My dream career changed from time to time, from an illustrator, to a physician, a physicist, then a NASA astronaut; only to name a few. I was driven by the desire to emulate the individuals I saw on televisions; those who have sparked innovative ideas and made an impact on the world.
Now, as a young adult with my own proclivity, my enthusiasm shifted towards psychology, astronomy and chemistry-- fields that never fails to pique my curiosity. However, I still faced the dilemma of choosing a specific field to study in college. Balancing academic achievements, capability and interests, I decided to pursue chemical engineering, the course that ticked all the boxes, and more importantly: suited my inquisitive personality.
I was born into a devout Muslim family when my parents were both in their early forties. As the last child with five much older siblings and mature parents, I was raised surrounded by those who instilled moral virtues within me since a very young age. And perhaps due to that, friends would describe me as someone who lives by her own values and principles, as I am not shy to stay true to myself even if it means being the odd one out among my peers. Nevertheless, I also cherish different opinions and insights that provoke thought as I see differences as a tool that encourages growth. That being said, I regard these qualities as something I am genuinely proud to possess.Please comment on my content and structure. I'm trying to submit before 15th Jan so I would highly appreciate your immediate help. Thanks in advance!
