I have a desire to study Computer Science because I like to
problem-solve and I enjoy a challenge. Computers make tough tasks simpler and faster
to perform, I want to study how computers do this. Computer Science will let me
to study features of computers in depth such as programming, algorithms and
operating systems. Moreover, Computer Science is a growing subject that has the
power to affect people’s daily lives now and in the future. It really intrigues
me how software systems such as Google and Facebook all boil down to the simple
but fundamental aspects of Computer Science and once a person learns these, the
opportunities are endless. What I love most about Computer Science is that you can
study development, analysis and design of hardware and software used to resolve
problems in a variation of circumstances, for instance in science, social and commercial
situations.

 

To be a successful student at university you must be able to organise,
be able to communicate and be capable of independent research. My college courses
require me to do a lot of research which has meant that I have had to develop
an independent and a self-reliant approach to studying. Through studying ICT, I
have been inspired to learn more about computer systems, how operating systems work,
it has improved my communications skills because I worked in groups to complete
projects. In addition, ICT has made me aware of the aspects of computing that I
previously was not aware about, for example system management, security of
computer systems and software management. In Games Development I work with Maya,
which is software for 3D modelling, by using Maya I have created models and
environments for games and animations. Maya has made me curious about how the it
operates and primarily depend on programming to function. It has made me
question where the boundaries of computing lie. In Games Development and IT, I
have done presentations and pitches to showcase my ideas and projects. This has
increased my self-confidence in front of other people. In Media Studies I have
learned analytical skills by comparing media texts. Computer science is far-reaching
field which requires spirit, dedication and enthusiasm to spend hours on end to
create solutions for problems, I believe I have these qualities in abundance.

In college I followed my interest in computing by joining a Realising
Aspirations programme where I visited a university and was given an inspiring
opportunity to attend talks by computer professionals at the cutting edge of
their field. Also in Realising Aspirations, I attended a lecture, by a
professor from a local university, in the lecture I learnt about artificial intelligence
and web technology such as JavaScript, HMTL and CSS. This experience gave me a
great insight into the subject, specifically about artificial intelligence
which helped me confirm that I wanted to do Computer Science. At home to increase
my understanding of the subject, I enrolled myself into online programming
courses to learn C++.

 

During my spare time, I watch online programming tutorials, I practice
to increase my knowledge and acquaint myself with the subject. I also follow
the latest technology news to see what new things are being invented and
innovations. I have done extensive research and I found that understanding and
experimentation is one the main elements of computer science. Moreover, I have
fixed many computers over the past few years. This has taught be lot about
troubleshooting. Using my understanding of computers, I have taught my older
family members how to use computers safely and responsibly.

Outside my computing interests I like to spend my time playing
football with my friends, I enjoy taking part and challenge myself. I also play
cricket for my local team which helps me with self-discipline and communication
skills. I want to make an impact on society with the skills I will learn in
university. I am looking forward at the prospect of studying computing at
university.
