"Growing up in an engineering family opened my eyes to the many applications and careers of the engineer, making me aware of the spectrum of opportunities available. I like what I do to be useful and realistic. Chemical Engineering has this to offer. Combined with my desire to know why, and an interest in practical application, this means that I can see the results of my achievements.
Having discovered through my A level studies that the fundamentals of the way the world works lie in Chemistry, Physics and Maths, I believe a subject combining these three main areas of science would explain much of how and why things work and would be of continuous interest to me, opening up a world of constant advancement. Core Maths is my favourite subject, and, as such, is an essential part of any career path for me. As a member of the National Academy of Gifted and Talented Youth, I enjoyed a conference explaining aerodynamics, which took place at

My preference for tangible results from my efforts can be seen through my involvement in the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award. After gaining my Bronze award, I am currently working on my Gold. Although my service involving young children has remained constant, my skills as part of this programme have ranged from Event Organisation to French.
In the future I would love to be working for a chemical engineering company that requires me to travel. As a Chemical Engineer, I would enjoy both the upkeep and the discovery of logical processes, as well as the wide range of opportunities for new experiences. This includes projects overseas and being contracted, both of which would enable me to indulge in diverse environments."
