These experiences shaped me into the person I am today. Football is more than a sport, it is something that is a significant artifact to myself as well as my family. My father and mother were raised on the earlier stages of football. Just as I was, these two grew up watching football every weekend with there own family. My father and grandfather were the only ones in his family that enjoyed watching football.
I have loved soccer ever since I can remember which can be since I took my first steps. If I was not playing soccer with my dad and brothers, I would watch games with my grandpa on TV. My dad was a soccer coach and, I grew up going to practices and watching him coach many teams until I was old enough to play on one of his teams. He always told me he wasn’t my dad during the game, he was a coach first and a dad second. As I grew older, I would go to my basement or my backyard to kick a ball around.
I remember my dad telling me that if I want to earn my first car, I need to work for it. I did some part-time works so that I can earn. My parents of course helped me with purchasing. They shouldered about half of price. My father told me that buying a car is one of the most fulfilling experience I will have in my young life because I can see where my money is going.
Every one has that one passion that they either didn’t care for at first or clung right to and either way didn’t let go. Mine is football. The Experience I want to share is my football experience. Now I have much love for football but in both playing and watching. I began playing football when I was 8 years old on the Iberia Youth football league.
Mr. Bridges has encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone, and I relate well to him as we have some similar interests. He has even helped me to discover different interests I would not have thought about before. Mr. Bridges also appears remarkable to me because he has kept in touch with me throughout the years and continues to challenge me to try new things. Mr. Bridges has done numerous things to help me starting with football. In football,
The basis of our future is the knowledge we have obtained in the past is a concept that I have truly believe in. The foundation of my journey towards becoming an engineer was laid in India’s Premier Steel City, Jamshedpur. With regular visits to the steel factory, the world of machines and mechanics started fascinating me. As a young kid, I once went with my father to a Car Servicing Shop, I was amazed how by using a small handle, the huge car could be lifted, Pascal’s law was unknown to me, but it did fascinate me as how a man could make their work easier by use of simple machines. Each new concept put forth a new question but I wasn’t able to define it.
My dad always tells me, “Maddie, if you keep getting faster, I think I may need to invest in some shin guards.” This always makes me not only laugh but realize that I am so lucky to have him in my life. During every practice, I look around and think about my other teammates, only a handful of them have a parent who will do that for them. For countless hours a week, he drives me from activity to activity and that has been the same since I was a little kid. He would leave work and go straight to my training facility just so I would have a catcher. When the weather is nice after school, we would go outside and pitch.
Since my childhood I have always wanted to be in the field of hardware and heavy machinery i.e Mechanical, and as I grew up this dream has been coming true little by little. I was enormously encouraged by my pre university results and I took up mechanical engineering as my major in my Bachelor’s college. I have always been an average student in studying theory but I have shown my interests in practical working more effectively. I believe that reading books is to recognize the subject. Lack of practical learning and learning only through reading books may be the reason for not having a higher score in my Bachelor’s Degree.
Growing up I’ve always been handy, I loved to build things with anything I got, I would sometimes go to junkyards with friends and get old wood boards and materials to build anything we could, bike ramps, skateboard rails, and even one time a pretty good looking small tree house. So when it came to picking what field I wanted to go into I knew it has to do something with my hands. I could have gone into I.T or the field of computers but they don’t pay that great and at that time I got my first car and fell in love with cars and how they worked, so being an engineer would be the perfect fit for me. There are some jobs out there that are slowly and slowly dying but engineering is a continuous growing job market. The job of being an engineer will never die because the world is always getting bigger and bigger there'll always be a need for more roads, bridges, tunnels, safer cars, faster planes, bigger buildings, all done by engineers.
Personal statement Gulzhanat Akhmetova From a very young age, I had aspirations of becoming an engineer, because I wanted to build machines that did not require direct human energy being utilized. to In my childhood, instead of dolls, I loved robots and machines with remote controls. In accumulation, these factors increased my desire to learn more about engineering. Soon afterwards, I started to learn physics and I became a serious motor sport enthusiast, and so I could increase my knowledge, my brother presented me with a motorcycle. By doing so, my brother encouraged me to read further about engineering, and a few books later, I knew what I was devoting my life to.
