Masters Degree in Finance at Harvard University

In my entire academic session, I have been a consistent performer. In my A level (2 years high school course after secondary school), I scored an AAA in three subjects (which included advance Maths and Economics) and stood first in Tanzania. In my GCSE level (exam at the end of secondary school), I scored an A in seven subjects and stood first in Tanzania. I am fortunate enough in the sense that the authorities noticed these achievements, and I was awarded the Vice chancellor’s scholarship, Bank of Tanzania scholarship (the US $ 10000 per annum) and Academic Merit Acknowledgement Scholarship for every year of my undergraduate studies. Had it not been for these scholarships, my dream to rise above my circumstances would have remained merely a dream.
I believe that those words of Thomas Jefferson were not just empty words when he said: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal. that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights. that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” I have merely extended in changing the pursuit of happiness into a pursuit of a dream – a dream to rise beyond the shackles of poverty and illiteracy.
I wish to do my Masters in Finance with only one goal in mind- to participate in the exciting and dynamic world of international finance. On completing my Masters, I would like to work in a professional financial organization– working through the ranks of operations, auditing, and corporate).&nbsp.
