Though I was born in Yerevan: The capital city of my home nation, Armenia; Majority of my life’s impactful occasions took place in a city of multiethnicity, opportunity, and diversity- Dubai that is. Moreover, in addition to my settlement in Dubai, having had the chance to explore several different nations across the globe, such as Russia, U.S.A, etc. was also an absolute gargantuan factor that had displayed my progression and product of my diversity that has been applied towards the community of my settlement. Hence why, with both these aspects assorted together, I strongly do believe that this mixture would enhance the evident visibility of my diversified settings of nature and how these abilities can engage perfectly with the University of Texas- Austin.To begin with, having had the opportunity to travel to multiple nations and locations worldwide/locally enabled me to observe different cultures and mindsets through a globally-viewed perspective, thus further compiling the feasibilities of my diversified knowledge application towards my fellow community members, such as my neighbors, fellow settlers on the same street, etc. A great example of this demonstration, was when I had toured across the city of Al-Masdar: Located from a 20-minute drive from my settlement, it is the emirate’s pioneering vision of a city of the future. With the goal of becoming the world’s most sustainable eco-city, Masdar is leading the way by developing a “green print” for how cities can accommodate rapid urbanization and dramatically reduce loss of energy, water, and gain of waste. With this feature being one out of many, Masdar also harnesses the power of the sun, using clean energy created from one of the largest photovoltaic installations in the Middle East. Throughout my observation of these features in this futuristic city, I could not help but to think of how our (My settlement) little yet hard-working community could have applied this physiognomy in our places of living, to reach to a potential maximum universal mindset. It was these abrupt yet useful thoughts – with relativity towards my environment- that had aided me to shape into the person of my current state.In addition to traveling to different cities/nations, the communities of the cities that I lived in are certainly an essential role in my distinctiveness as a product. For instance, my fellow friends in my latest secondary school- that is The Winchester School-, appear from many diverse cultural backgrounds/nationalities- such as India, Egypt, Colombia, Romania, etc. With these implications of the variety of historical backgrounds that my fellow friends have come from, I find myself to have attained enough knowledge to develop my standards of innovative and anticipation skills.Moreover, since I have derived from a Gregorian-Christian Armenian generation- currently only 2,000+ of this heritage in the United Arab Emirates-, and have been the only Armenian student in The Winchester School for the past 3 years, one could proclaim myself as being an influential-diverse individual in the nearby districts/community. Thereby permitting myself to play a persuasive role in the enrichment of other individuals’ development across my school and my surrounding environment.In conclusion, the colossal amount of traveling across the globe/nation and the vast number of cultural backgrounds present in my place of living, spawned in understandings of diverse perspectives of mine, thus indulging myself to develop into an individual with great innovational and anticipation skills. Regardless of the skills that I possess from these factors, other minuscule yet beneficial influences – such as my historical background, my family background, etc.- have enacted a major aspect in my personal characteristics (as well as others), therefore shaping me into the person that I am now. What I assuredly hope to accomplish with the diversity that I may bring across the University of Texas-Austin, is to inaugurate a representation of an uncommon Armenian national to fellow students of the university.
