Making a name for myself, a stand for my
family and leaving a mark in the world, is all I’ve ever wanted. Society
teaches each generation that they should not be afraid to get what they want,
that when an opportunity comes you grab it. This Business course is my
opportunity, it is a chance to prove myself and be the best accomplished person
I could become. Years from now having completed this course is an aspiration of
“All of our dreams come true if we
have the courage to pursue them.”
Growing up coming from a small family that is making just enough income
to survive has motivated and inspired me to go do a subject that benefits me.
Through my AS’ I have gained more confidence
to bring my future plans to light and the enthusiasm to delve deeper into the
world of business. Doing a BTEC Business course has allowed me to interact with
different people that I would not usually interact with. Unit 1 Business
Environment developed my researching skills from learning about the
stakeholders of the NHS to their social, legal and political factors. I studied
English Literature previously which helped me improve my writing skills helping
me to understand how people communicate and how they interpret things. Having
these skills improved my morale and efficiency, thus I was able to produce
better work quickly and precisely. After completing the course, a business
analyst is what I want to become because I would be managing requirements that
could fulfil a company’s needs. The role includes improving the sales of the
business and analysing data.
Usually, “Why do you think you’re
suitable for this course?” is asked. Why wouldn’t I be? Taking part in the
NCS programme has allowed me to be courageous and adventurous, making me try
new things and participate in a team project which included planning a
Halloween event in an elderly people’s community centre. The young Lambeth
cooperative is an organisation where young people help to change the community.
Being a member of the young Lambeth community encouraged me to participate in
more group projects, events and even give out speeches to audiences. Being a
prefect gave me skills such as time management, excellent communication and
leadership skills. Working for a small charity called Inside Success has really
boosted my confidence because it involved explaining what the company was all
about to strangers in an open environment and persuading them to donate however
much they could to help the youth in the community. I was a sales assistant in
Sainsbury’s and now currently working in a hospitality agency called Temptribe
has given the ability to adapt to different fast-paced environments meaning
that on this course it would be easy for me to adjust very quickly.
In my spare time, I enjoy drawing as it
comforts me when I am stressed. Drawing also develops my patience which is
needed when I draw fashion designs for my clothing line. Athletics is another
hobby of mine as it keeps my mind and body healthy allowing me to process
content from this Business course easily.
The knowledge I would obtain from the
course would help me to follow my dream.
I understand that today, business involves not just balancing the books
but is about the investments, assets, people, opportunities and risks.
excited and eager to gain more essential skills in this Business course.
Learning about new interesting topics is intriguing to me as business is a
subject that I enjoy. I know that this Business course will be difficult but I
will persevere because I never give up no matter the circumstance. I believe
that with my enthusiasm and my tendencies to love challenges, I would be a
fantastic addition to this course.
