I have a great deal of experience with volunteerism service in my native country of South Korea, which I can apply to the same extracurriculars at Florida State University. This perspective may prove useful to others doing the same, and could further greater understanding of the world as a whole. For example, one of my proudest achievements in volunteerism is helping to clean up after the Hebei Spirit oil spill, one of the biggest manmade marine disasters in Korean history. Seeing that level of dedication in my fellow man, especially after such a devastating tragedy, helped inspire me to display that same commitment in my actions. The scope of both the disaster and the relief effort moved me greatly, and I would love to relay that sense of awe and activism in my fellow student.
I have many high hopes for my college experience, which I am confident Florida State University can fulfill for me. In addition to the aforementioned cultural experience and volunteer perspective, I would like to benefit from the incredible education in Criminology that FSU is renowned for. Upon attending FSU, I would like to major in the field of Criminology, as I would like to pursue a career in law enforcement. Florida State University has been acclaimed as one of the best Criminology schools in the country; with that in mind, I believe I would learn greatly from an education at FSU.
In conclusion, there are many things I wish to contribute to the community of Florida State University. My presence could greatly benefit the school's emphasis on diversity and intercultural studies, and my volunteer work has given me fresh perspective on many unique issues, including environmentalism and religion. With this in mind, I would love to become part of the unique family of students who attend this university.
