application essay personal statement

Hello!

I need a personal statement of no more than 4300 characters long, including spaces. that means spaces and apostrophes etc are accounted. this is basically 1 page single spaced

It is for dental program: prompt simply asks to write about why Im pursuing/interested dentistry

Here is what I would like for the personal statement be reflected of :

Growing up, i never had a true father figure, it was really my mom and my grandfather who i grew up with, those were the people who played a instrumental part throughout my life. I never got to know my granddad from from my father side, he passed away a year before i was born. However my grandfather from my mother side (the one who was present during my life) were best friends from our home country. During my youth, he would tell me stories and share about himself and my granddad and through him I got to know both people. I guess a 2 for 1 kind of thing. So i grew up with a strong bond and friendship with my grandfather. He had a keen intuition, when we were young (my siblings and I), he would greet us by Doctor or engineer up untill we were in college, and with this intuition, was all true. my siblings became what he called us by profession as children and as young adults. My siblings grew up to be doctors or engineer.With me he would called me “Doctarh Dondhan” meaning Doctor of teeth in our respective language. And truth me he knew more about me than I did myself and saw something in me that wasn’t apparent to no one else. But he was right. I grew up interested in the field, I shadowed multiple physicians (plastic surgeons, pediatricians, etc) but nothing was as intriguing and nor was it career path i sought best for my abilities/capabilities.

*My original goal during high school senior year and college was in pursuing dentistry. however, due to life mistakes, immaturity lead me to in a path that led me away from my goals. from 4.0 GPA (grade point average) to academic suspension. I knew there was more to me that i had to discovered and understand so i took sometime off to get to know myself. I grew up in a middle eastern household where typical american social life was nonexistent. My college graduation was severely extended from the norm. rather than graduting on time, in 4 years, i graduated in 6. (just to put the extent of my mistakes and development)

In college i lost myself, i knew i needed to grow and development before pursuing a career as a health professional.

AS i begun to sort myself out, progress in school and align my studies applying to dental school and get back on track my grandfather was diagnosed with lung cancer. that was huge turning point for me. My mother and I were his primary caretakers, As I was the only sibling at home, attending my local university. I was glad to do so. He always wanted to see me graduate college, and always wanted updates in what i was doing in school growing up. Towards half way to his illness (about 7 months before his passing) when i was walking him to the restroom, even with his struggle and pain he turned to me and ask “when was i graduating” I said to him this semester> he said “if I am alive till then, I would love to see you graduate”. I tired to graduate in an accelerated rate, taking a dense course load that semester, so he was able to see me graduate from college. but due to my past mistakes he wasn’t able to. I learned my many mistakes and know what is valuable to me and what i want to do.

Now, in addition to what i wrote above. there are other reasons why dentistry. here they are:

  1. Dentistry was my original career plan, however due to hiccups and certain factors I decided to reevaluate myself, try new things and better understand myself. Even if it may have causes delays in graduation or really unfortunate occurrences (cause and effect) type of ordeal. Nevertheless, it allowed me to regroup and take away important lessons. Im a firm believer, if one learns from their mistakes or generally life choices, there should no regrets.
  2. Believe it or not my grandfather, perhaps intuition is best word to use here towards his grandkids. In fact, when we (my siblings and I) he would greet us by Doctor or engineer and truth be told it all came true. Dentistry isn’t a profession many consider nor fond of. Probably a stigma of some sort but its truly rewarding. Even so, he was into oral health. Always have a tooth-pick or floss with him and I would see him right after meals use them. His habits rubbed off on me. I remember even in hospital, few months before his passing when he given liquified food, he would still ask for a toothpick to use.
  3. Personal reasons. I didn’t have the best oral health as a child. In the third grade or so elementary school my central incisor (front tooth) had rotted away, many cavities etc.Genetically disposed too weak teeth. I had few cosmetic procedures done, all of which as a blessing in many ways. I know the of having a smile that isn’t so perfect. And the difference dentist can make. It has change my life and confidence, it is probably the only thing that made my life better in every occasion.
  4. I do have aspirations in oral surgery and maxillofacial primarily work with individuals on base or suffering from injuries.
  5. One of the dentist I shadowed, on the first day told me to not consider dentistry, ‘it isn’t what it seems’ and consider medicine. On that same day, she was treating a veteran who need about 80% cosmetic work, he had missing teeth, etc and was not in the best shape. Needless to say I was taken away. Because not only is it rewarding having the skill set and knowledge to implement change at an individual basis. Dentist treat a part of our body that is crucial for so many aspects of our daily lives. I think its overlooked.
  6. Lastly, some of parts of the US there is a tremendous need for eduction and care for underserved communities/populations. Today, it seems having a white teeth defines a healthy mouth or what have you. Its a misconception, so I believe more can be done…

So i will leave that up to you how to structure this and make it an overall appealing personal statement!!!

I will give a bonus if the work is amazing! on top of overall payment ($$)
