ESSAY

Gandhi once said "Be the change you want to see in the world". For me this means that if you want something to be different you need to do something to make it different. I've been in college for 3 months now and I already see life in a whole other way. I believe that my true wish is not getting an education to get money, but to be able to make a change in the world. Scholarships are made to help students make these changes in the world. Right now awarding me ....

Gandhi once said "Be the change you want to see in the world". For me this means, that if you want something to be different, you need to do something to make it different. I've been in college for 3 four months now, and I already see life in a whole other way. I believe that mMy true wish is not to getting an education to get make money, but to be able to make a change in the world (Sounds kind of cliche..What kind of change?). Scholarships are made to help students make these changes in the world. Right now awarding me this Recieving a scholarship is really very important, because I face financial hardships that are not letting keep me from reaching that my goal.

Initially From the beginning, I believed that technology is to be a big change in the world. Ever Ssince I was 8 eight-years-old, I have been using the computer for personal things, such as having an email, surfing the web etc. At that time, I did not know all the things technology had to offer, and how it helped to make the world a better place. Nowadays, we use technology for everything we do in our daily lives. I want to use technology and education to make positive changes in my community, and in the world. (you mention bringing change a lot; however, again, what kind of change? Mentioning some ways you want or plan to use technology, will make your essay way more interesting than just saying simply "I want to bring change").

Furthermore, I am planning to study Computer Science, or Computer Information Systems with the help of this scholarship. I feel I deserve this scholarship, because this will not only help me as an individual, but it will also help could benefit the community in a the near future, because I will be I plan to spending my time in research to contribute the benefits with the to the community.

I like how you started out with a quote.
Thank you very much! you are right I need to add more detail to the "change the world" part.

It's kind of hard for me to express my thoughts since my first language is Spanish so your review helped a lot!
If you have room, I think you should answer their questions in three strong body paragraphs of the essay. There are three main parts to their questions for you (i.e. organizations, service, circumstances).

Use a paragraph for each of those, and then go back and add an introduction paragraph that sums up the main idea you get when you put all three body paragraphs together.

I've been in college for 3 months now and I already see life in a whole other way I think you should change the end of this sentence so that it expresses something that pertains to the Gandhi quote about change.


Initially, I believe that technology is a big change in the world You should revise this so that it says something meaningful, not something obvious.

:-)
Hey guys! this is my second version hope its a little bit better :)




Gandhi once said "Be the change you want to see in the world". For me this means if, you want something to be different; you need to do something to make it different. I have been in college for three months now, and I already envision the world in a different perspective. My wish is being able to study in a prestigious technological institution, identify human behavior through technological research and apply technological simulations to reduce the damage by natural disasters over the entire world. Scholarships help promising students to make a change in our world. Because of this, receiving this scholarship would allow me to help prevent our society's inevitable problem of natural disasters and improve our standard of living.

Ever since I was eight-years old, I have been motivated with technology. For example, I used the computer for creating an email address to keep in touch with relatives, I also surfed the web to find news articles for school projects. In today's world we have an almost unlimited uses of technology. For instance, using robotic surgery for cancer treatment, using weather simulations for disaster preventions and using virtual worlds for people interaction, these are all examples of technological advance. Nowadays, we use technology resources for everything we do in our daily lives. For example, we use Facebook to keep in touch with friends and relatives; we also use online banking to check our account balance, and we use the GPS to locate any address we need to reach. I want to use these technological resources to help future successors of the world obtain a better standard of life.

Furthermore, I plan to study Computer Science in Georgia Tech, and learn the ways artificial intelligence can help society. I also plan to research the different uses of simulation and virtual interaction in the technology environment. I have done more than a hundred hours in community service and I've realized that if we do not take action nothing will change. In today's world more than words, wishes are required, and I plan to take action so my words and dreams can turn into reality.
