College Application

06 Nov 2017Essay Samples

I wish to pursue my studies at Queen’s University toward a Major in either East Asian Studies or History. These are the fields to which my interests tend most strongly. In the recent past, I have had to contend with several formidable obstacles whereby my studies were interrupted. However, I do feel that the circumstances at this time are perfect for undertaking a full academic programme.

I have been away from my studies since September, 2002, and had been assisting with the family business until December, 2002. Currently, I am employed with Gemma Communications as a customer service representative on a full-time basis; in addition, I am helping with the family business. I am managing quite well with this strenuous routine, and experience no conflict because of it.

I commenced studies at Wilfrid Laurier University in January, 2000. During my second term, my father underwent major surgery because of an aneurism. His medical history extends back approximately over seventeen years when he had his first surgery due to aneurism. Under the circumstances, it was necessary for me to travel to Toronto quite frequently to assist my mother with the family business. I also found it difficult to become integrated with the school community at Wilfrid Laurier, as it was a very small community.

At the time of my father’s second surgery, my marks gradually began falling. By the time that he began to recover, I was experiencing serious depression. I contacted both a counselor and a school physician, and was prescribed antidepressant medication temporarily. During that period, I was incapable of focusing on academic work since I was not motivated to accomplish anything. However, I did manage to overcome the depression, and received counseling regarding effective coping mechanisms. As a consequence, the whole experience actually proved to be a positive learning experience for me.

The present period is a promising and conducive one for me to concentrate on my academic needs. I feel ready to commence and complete my studies. My family situation is much more stable. Furthermore, Toronto is my hometown, with both my family and friends located here. I now feel healthy both physically and emotionally. I am convinced that this is the ideal time for me to resume my academic career. I will never feel satisfied until I complete my school work, so that I can make a valuable contribution to society. I also feel that I can make a worthwhile contribution to Queen’s University as a student there.
