When I look back at my college days and reminisce the times when academic requirements are piling up at my study table, I can’t help but give myself a pat at the back for a job well done. Having to keep up with exams week is no easy feat and being a student is a lot hard. Now that I already am a professional, I thought my passion for knowledge is long gone. I have with me the skills i need to land a decent job. However, working for an engineer consulting firm that designs irrigation and draining networks and does researches for water resource has fanned my dying passion for knowledge. There is much to learn once you open your eyes to possibilities.
Perhaps the most important thing that I learned while working at the firm is that there is much to be done for the safety of the workers who do the rigorous jobs at the construction sites. For the last eight months I have also served at a construction company as a coordinator which enabled me to fully understand the need for health safety in industrial sites. It is their health that is compromised in every job that they do. Since man is the most valuable resource, it is deemed significant that we take care of that resource for the benefit of both the workers and the company. It is for the well being of both parties that we need to protect. This has fueled my passion to pursue Master of Science in Industrial Hygiene. This serves as my primary motivation for applying in this university.
Since my bachelors degree is in the field of agronomy and plant breeding, I have come to realize the importance of the environment for everyone. Now that our planet is in the verge of environment degradation, this has further amplified my interest in taking care of the environment and the people who live in it. This interest takes anchor on the fact that even the field of agriculture also does harm to the environment and the people, thus, damaging the health humans as well as animals.
Furthermore, I want to capitalize on my interest and my newly found passion for me to explore other fields of study. It is of my understanding that gaining knowledge is a process that goes way beyond college graduation. It is a life long quest that I would daringly take for the pursuit of knowledge itself. I aim to further polish my skills as a professional and be adept with Industrial Hygiene for in reality, we do not lose our passion for knowledge. We learn new things each day. There is much to learn in the real world, but more often than not we have to equip ourselves with proper tools for us to be more effective in what we do. I look forward to hone my knowledge in this university. The will dare to face the challenges of the academe once more for the purpose of enriching my knowledge.
