I appreciate your help.When I was small I asked my Dad, "Dad, why is the sky blue?" My dad could not give me a satisfactory reply. This was the moment where the adventure started. I got on my journey to discover the world and its myteries. As a young boy I just wanted to know everything. Where is the rain coming from? Why is it thundering and what is a lightening doing? Why do stars not fall from the sky? I had so many questions which were not answered and noboby could explain me how the world acts. When I grew older and enrolled in school I gained the possibility to find ways of answering questions by myself, by researching for answers in books or on the internet. When I had a question I could not find an answer I got possessed with ambition; I searched for the answer with a great tenacity until I found it. This has made me the person who I am today.I am always interested in learning something new and understanding a little bit more of the world. I want to make a change, create something new and solve existing problems. My interest in science led me to choosing Math and Physics as performance courses in high school which is the most scientific choice at german high schools. I am willing to proceed in studying in this area. So I looked for a University which is specialized at this. From the very first moment when I saw the slogan: "answers to the world's questions" I thought the University of ... is the best choice for me. Because of its excellent Faculty of Engineering also known in Germany, I know I can not get a better education in engineering than in ... . Due to my distinct curiosity I developed "staying power", to never give up and dedication to achieve a goal. I learned in my life that when you are really interested in something and you try your best without giving up you can obtain everything. Like Albert Einstein who named my high school said, "I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious."
