Biology has always been aninteresting subject to me, biology isn’t just as we exist now of course, it isan amalgamation of millions of years gone by, it affects your daily life andoverall life decisions in such dramatic way yet many seem unaware of itseffect.
From your place in various social hierarchy’s, to your choice in sexualpartners, even though it seems as if the self is in control, it is your biologythat influences the self to make these crucial decisions.In terms of my education, I have aBTEC Extended Diploma in IT (Software Development). On this course, we weretaught the basics of computing at a higher level, for example, we were taught theprinciples of programming using Visual Basic, how to build and maintaindatabases using Microsoft Access and learnt how to design computer networksusing Cisco. After successfully completing thiscourse, I went on to find work as a Renewals Processor Clerk at an insurancebroker. It was here I successfully showed a willingness to work hard and tolearn quickly, as I was the only trainee released from the new employeemonitoring period early. I also learnt the people skills that you need ineveryday life, as this job required me to talk to all sorts of people to answertheir queries and to extract information from them.Recently I attended the Universityof Derby for two years, it was here I was studying a BSc in BroadcastEngineering.
During my first year, I displayed the ability to design, read andbuild from schematics and using these skills, I successfully built a workingsynthesiser as our 1st year project. I also learnt the basics ofengineering mathematics and applied this to the rigging of trusses. At the endof my first year and the start of my second year, I was able to gain someexperience at a small broadcasting company called Cloudbass. In my time spentat this company, I was often tasked with solving problems or completing tasksrelated to broadcast (e.g.
patching signals, setting up cameras). At the start of my second year, Ifell ill and quickly found that I had become depressed and agoraphobic. Iquickly saw a doctor and began some counselling sessions. Although I was notable to fix my issues right away, I have since completely overcome any problemsI had. I was able to use this experience as a catalyst to realise that I wasunhappy in what I was doing at university and that I wanted to change. I amextremely happy I had this epiphany as I feel so much more sure of myself now,in nearly every aspect of my life, from what I want to do in the future (whichis work in an area that has a human touch to it), to my principles as a person.As a person, I very much enjoylearning new things, especially about the natural world and all its phenomena. Ihave recently enjoyed the works of Jade Goodall and her observations ofchimpanzees and their social lives.
I am a record collector and enjoy musicfrom all years and genres. I’m also a keen chess player and enjoy learning andspectating the game.
