Many people consider Mathematics as the king of all Sciences, the true language of knowledge, and although it has been studied all over the globe its origin from Greece is somehow distinct from anywhere else. Being intrigued by this subject whose name emanated from the greek word “mathema” and having idols such “Euclid” and “Pythagoras” in your country’s history compels one not just to follow but to investigate and scrutinize their discoveries. From early adolescence I was conversant with mathematical conceptions, and I realised the knowledge that I was acquiring from school was insufficient and felt obliged to excavate deeper to broaden my mathematical knowledge which urged me to turn to the work of many mathematicians, and reading “The Prince of Mathematics : Carl Friedrich Gauss” made me hastily become conscious of the fact that maths is not just a hobby or interest but rather a “way of life”.
My relentless dedication in broadening my understanding of this “way of life” convinced my teachers in year 11 to select me as school representative for the Regional Annual Mathematical competition. My fondness for mathematics, and the immense faith my teachers had in me, motivated me to prepare thoroughly for weeks, and finally succeed in winning first place. I believe that there are two different ways to examine how the world progresses: the first is through the advancement of history and human civilisation, and the second is through the advancement of learning and human comprehension.
The two are interlinked, and since a young age I have been enthusiastically inspired by both. In addition to maths, cosmology and astrology I also dedicate a substantial amount of time to my interest in Philosophy. Once again the fact that the word Philosophy itself originates from the greek “Philosophia” (which means “the love of wisdom”) demands that I explore and facilitate my findings. My style of thinking has always been unique, I have just never attributed the word “Philosophy” to it and its this style of thinking that makes 4000 characters a very cramped and confined space to define my perception of Philosophy. I sat the CAT test (in Year 7) and achieved the highest score in my year (I found out in Year 11), this made wonder about my IQ and different approaches to improve it which led me to discover Mensa and apply to sit their tests, which resulted in me achieving a score of 133, automatically making me an official Mensa member.
This however did not stop me from wishing to achieve higher and I still habitually practice believing in hard work and and self development. Mental dexterity aside, I have diverse passions such as sports and have won a few medals in Javelin and Shot-put and I also placed second place in my boroughs table tennis competition. I participated in NCS which was a 4 week programme that taught me two of my most imperative life lessons; resilience and independence, I believe these two qualities will be very useful in university and particularly for my course.
