It is known globally that Mathematics is a flexible subject. It
can be applied almost everywhere, from measuring the size of an organelle to
calculating the profit gained by a company over the year. What really piqued my
interest is that there are different ways to solve a math question yet we keep
on discovering new formulae and methods to arrive to the correct answer. It made
me question, how is that possible? And that is, to me, the beauty of
mathematics.

While pursuing Mathematics, Physics and Biology during my A Level
years, I started to realise that statistics is very important. It is used to
question the result of an experiment such as the relation between two
variables, the presence of anomalies and more. Statistics is also needed to
deal with real-life problems. For instance, to predict the future and prepare
for it, and to be aware of any changes. This is the reason I have become more
interested in statistics. We make decisions based on the results shown by a
graph, we predict the chance something will happen using probability and we
compare data using statistics.

To further my experience in doing statistics, I was a member of
the Research Club at my secondary school. Along with the other members, we hand
out surveys to students and then compile the data for our presentation. I also
participated in ‘Seminar dan Perkhemahan Eksplorasi Kendiri (SPEK)’ which is a
program of seminars and self-exploration camping, where we camped out near the
forest and did activities in a group. One of the activities we did is that each
group had to finish a race which takes place in the forest while being
blindfolded and all the members of the group had to cross the finish line in
order to win the race. This build up my teamwork and communication skills which
can help me to be more comfortable interacting and working with others.

I was also involved in some volunteering works such as Kitani
Foundation’s Charity Drive and ‘Projek Aur dan Tebing’ in which both are
donation drives. I helped in advertising the charity work to get as many people
to donate to those in need. As for extracurricular activities, I enjoy swimming
and playing badminton for leisure. I was part of the Health and Fitness club
where I was the secretary of the club. I was in charge of taking attendance and
organize activities. It help me to improve my time management skill and increase
my capability to take care of responsibilities that are trusted to me.

Doing Mathematics is always fun for me. It can be disappointing if
I don’t get the correct answer but after trying a few times, getting the pieces
together and arriving to the correct answer makes me feel accomplished and
satisfied. This motivates me to push myself forward and learn more. I want to
pursue this subject even further and learn more about it in depth. By getting a
degree of this course, I will be able to help to improve my country using my
knowledge and skills.
