  2. 2. Personal Statement<br />For a long time now I have been interested in the subject of Psychology. I<br />have a fascination in understanding how the mind absorbs information,<br /> interpreted within certain cognitive processes resulting in a behavior that is <br />intentional or unintentional. My desire to study Psychology and especially<br /> the question of how an individual's behavior can have a positive or <br />negative impact on someone else’s life was first awakened through the<br /> dynamics of my parents’ relationship when I was growing up. Some of my<br /> goals include obtaining a Master degree in Psychology, working with <br />individuals who have struggled with their mental stability to help them <br />maintain their sense of self by providing psychotherapy, and providing<br /> emotional and financial stability to my family.<br />I place a high value on stability in life which reflects on my family, career, <br />and relationships. I believe that combined with my enthusiasm for the<br /> subject, the skills I have learned through my past work experience and my<br /> studies will make me an ideal candidate for achieving a career in the field<br /> of Psychology.<br />

  7. 7. My Future in Learning<br />Learning is a lifelong process. How do you envision your future as<br /> a lifelong learner? <br />I used to always want to be done with schooling as quickly as <br />possible. I took as many classes at once as I could handle just to<br /> get through and be done. However, over the past two years I have<br /> learned that learning is a continued and life-long process and one <br />that I have grown to enjoy immensely. There is no shortage of <br />routes to take when it comes to education, and every chance I have<br /> to better myself and the world around me, in one that I am going to<br /> take.<br />
