Curiosity and the desire to help others have always been my chief motivators. Discovering something new, learning a new approach to solving a problem, understanding how something works, or developing a skill has always been the driving force behind most of my actions. This motivation was the primary reason for my decision to pursue higher education and continue to strive for personal, academic, and professional achievements. Each new problem can be seen as a challenging puzzle that must be solved. Such curiosity and inquisitiveness push me towards experimenting with new things, exploring new areas of study, and investigating new approaches to solving problems and making decisions. Because of that, I constantly strive to improve my knowledge and advance my professional skills.
Altruism is a critical part of human civilization and culture. As a personal quality, it drives one to commit selfless acts to assist those in need. It is a desire for one’s every action to have a positive effect and improve the lives of those around oneself. Furthermore, altruism seeks to prevent harming others wherever possible. Thus, my education and professional growth are guided by the principles of ethics, inclusivity, and sustainability. These principles inform my decisions and my interactions with others, causing me to consider points of view besides mine and seek diplomatic, mutually beneficial solutions whenever possible. Furthermore, altruism is related to truthfulness, honesty, and authenticity; research has linked these qualities to improved outcomes across a variety of areas of life, from personal to business and academic areas. As such, altruism and its related qualities inform most of my decisions, both personal and professional, towards doing what is best for everyone around me.
