I am Eman Elhseeny, RA and master student at Cairo University, Systems and Biomedical Engineering.
The great mathematician Archimedes once said, “If you give someone a lever which is suitable for him and a fulcrum on which to place it, he shall move the world.” He would like to say that if you increase the lever’s length, you will require exerting less effort to accomplish your task. So I tried to follow this rule and it became a spiritual guide of my life. I always believe that life’s levers are hardworking, seeking for your dreams and if you combined them with the good opportunities you then
can succeed; However, all of these reasons are useless when forced upon an incorrect place. Everyone should have a passion without a passion for success, these opportunities, and experiences become obsolete. I believe that I must struggle to find the correct balance between these variables and always plan for my future. So I’m trying to be someone who finds that balance.
In my way to build a successful knowledge and stable lever for myself, I have searched for these experiences and opportunities all my life. I always had a passion and insistence for learning and struggle to succeed. At the beginning of my early year in high school, I noticed and realized that all the peoples in my country suffered from lack of medical awareness, and many people died from dangerous disease especially cancer and hepatitis. I wanted to help them in a way or another but didn’t like medical schools, and my school teachers always noted that I had good abilities in such subjects as mathematics and physics, so I decided to join engineering school. I searched for closest filed in engineering to biology and; finally, I found it which is biomedical engineering.
I had always dreamed to be a professional in the engineering field; So, I searched on my studies what can I do with all this knowledge to serve my country. I found that we have some courses which are interested in applying what we learn to build hardware machines which treating people, others courses were to improve the performance of these machines by improving their built-in software algorithms but I was not curious about these topics, but on the other side there were interesting courses for how to apply our engineering and medical knowledge to develop the ways to early detected and diagnosed diseases. We learned different machine learning algorithms many applications whether it was the classification for a specific disease or detected the abnormality within the body. So I tried to increase my ability on the learning filed, so I worked on many projects on using machine learning but in a different application like rehabilitation problems, biosignal processing, and medical image processing.
Also, I would like to mention that last semester I had an artificial intelligence course form which I differentiate between machine learning, deep learning, and algorithms. I also wanted to complete my master degree in this area using deep learning for processing medical images. After that, I wanted to increase my knowledge in that field, so I began searching for a college that would provide me with excellent academic and hands-on experience. While I knew that PI is a prestigious science and engineering school for artificial intelligence, upon further research, I realized that PI is the college for me.
Beside, my attention to be a hard work person, I am also having my social activities which I like to do. Generally, I’m trying to keep my life interesting. I participate in many student activities and I’m also falling in love with the sport. For instance, I am a karate player. What is more, the fact that our national team in karate is considered one of the best teams all over the world; Finally, I cannot forget that watching movies is another passion of mine; Thus, most of all I prefer science fiction, horror, fantasy and detective ones as my favorite genres.
Looking for a hands on program, as I mentioned before I found that PI School links its activity with investigative work and at the same time develop programming skills of its students, this why I am seeking for this scholarship. In addition, I found that my nation is lack of qualified specialists and expertise in the field of artificial intelligence so, I wish to contribute to the development of national healthcare. In other words, if I gain this scholarship in your university then I am going to return to my homeland to make efforts to establish my project and complete my master degree to provide a good diagnostic and screening tool for early disease monitoring and detection with high quality and at a reasonable price. To implement such a goal, I need to improve my leadership qualities and acquire special knowledge in the chosen field of education, which will be possible if I join PI School.
In conclusion, I would like to say that if I become a student of your school, I promise to be a worthy member of the team.
Thank you very much for considering my application. I look forward to your positive response.
