To this young man who has always dreamed of knowing what our infinite Universe hides behind its emptiness, becoming an Astronomer would be the dream come true. Our Universe is a mystery, deep and unknown, and I am obsessed with learning more about it. I dream of myself working on scientific research and discovering something that could possibly be the revolution to everything us humans know about the Cosmos, creating new rules of Physics and even giving them my own name, generate controversy with what we now call the Scientific Truth by arguing and demonstrating my own theories.
Realistically, I should not just dream about it. Instead, I must work hard to make my dreams come true. For this reason, I want to get the best education possible, I will become a successful student by improving myself in every aspect, learning from my mistakes, concentrating in the classroom and studying hard. And even though I do not come from a very wealthy background, my determined and strong will has always been the reason for my success in life. To me, success is about getting all the knowledge that you wanted to have, it is finding that you have achieved your goals, it is waking up in the morning feeling victorious rather than feeling defeated, and this is exactly how I picture myself. I want to change the world, I know somehow, somewhere and someday, I will discover something big, something I will forever be proud of, and be known for.
