I am apart of the top 10 students of my year.
I have a great passion for astronomy.
A huge , an enormous , a colossal passion for astronomy.
As of a young age, space has always fascinated me and, my curiosity of what lies beyond the white, flurry clouds has lead me to this very moment right now, typing my story. Although the universe is something which has always intrigued me, my "dream job" would constantly change, day by day. One episode of 'Brooklyn Nine Nine' and I would awe at the imagination of myself being a police woman. Or in some other instances when I would watch a crime documentary and the very next moment I would find myself searching "subjects needed to become a forensic scientist" on the internet.
I had a lot of dreams. And I wanted to achieve them all. That is why I cluelessly wriggled around my thoughts and my true, raw desires to understand what I really, really , wanted to do. But recently, facing the reality, I came to the epiphany that not even two years were left for me. Seven terms - that was the amount of terms left until my high school graduation. Some time between the end of year 10 until the beginning of January 2020, I had a period of time to reflect upon myself. I thought and thought and thought, about the career I really, really wanted to pursue. And the result?
I had come to the conclusion that astronomy was the path I wanted to walk along.
Only a year and a few months away from my graduation, I also thought about which universities would be able to allow myself to discover, understand and answer the questions upheld by my curiosity. Personally, I have always been interested in attending an university located in another country than Australia. Therefore, ever since I have been beginning to prepare myself for senior year of high school, I have been researching universities based in the United States and the United Kingdom, where education and technology related to astronomy is highly advanced.
During my search on how to enrol to universities located in the US or the UK, I began to be pulled into the black hole of confusion and frustration. Like a blank sheet of paper, I had no knowledge on the various exams that I had to sit and the factors which would advantage myself within the many stars of admissions.
That's when I found Crimson Education.
And now, here I am writing my story and finding opportunities to allow myself strive for what I truly want.
