Name of the Student
29th October, 2015.
Two of my personal qualities that I strongly believe are my level of involvement and quest for innovation. Right from childhood I always tried out ways and means to find out solutions on various issues. I exhibited such behavior within my family settings or in my school settings or my community settings. I have always been a hardworking person and have a proven academic track record. I received merit certificates for achieving 9.2 CGPA in my 6th and 10th grades. I always wanted to help out academically weak students in my schooldays and was appreciated by my peers and teachers.
However, I had a dream to innovate something that could expedite the process of academics in weak students. An opportunity opened before me when my uncle (who incidentally was the owner of snaphomework.inc) introduced me to the “Snaphomework”. It was a mobile app that extended from classroom to home settings. I was the first beta tester for the app and recognizing the usefulness and applicability of the app, I decided to add more innovations to the app. To help out such cause I started working as a marketing intern in the organization. My job profile was to research on various schools and had them onboard to use the app, through email marketing.
It is exciting and encouraging highlighting, that presently I have been successful in getting more than 200 schools on board and the number of users has crossed thirty thousand already. When I receive the comments of various parents regarding the utility of the app, it provides me great satisfaction. Such feedback motivates me for my future actions and endeavours. I felt that the innovation, which made this app beneficial to the society, was due to my perseverance and solemn wish to help out the society.
While working as a marketing intern I learnt to accept the opinion and visions of my peers with an open frame of mind, I do reflected upon such ideas and implement the best possible action. I always created an atmosphere of the open and inclusive environment. I took various assertive decisions that were fast and specific to address a certain issue regarding the innovation on the app. Apart from my academic intellect, my personality trait also helped in jellying with my team to make the app a huge success.
I understand that in any specialty of education, one needs to apply leadership skills and innovation to think out of the box. Such skills will not only ensure academic expertise but increase lateral sharing of ideas and sharing of best practices that would be beneficial for the entire class. If I get an opportunity to pursue my Grad degree in your reputed institute, I will try to inculcate my leadership skills and teamwork for the acquisition of knowledge. Such actions will help my peers and me, to fulfill our dreams of becoming subject level experts. Apart from making us technical experts, I would inculcate the motivation in my peers for doing something beneficial for the society. Moreover, I would be instrumental in applying my education in the form of implementation skills and would share the same with my peers. I am sure that application of theoretical and practical knowledge in our routine education schedules would help each one of us, in becoming technical experts. I will be highly obliged if you kindly consider my philosophy for opting for a Grad degree in your esteemed institution.
