Cleaning up Kuwait and Getting it Moving in the Personal Statement for Graduate School

(Q) Do you think that the lifestyle of the inhabitants of your town or city reflects behavior that is in line with the concept of sustainable development? In your opinion, what should be improved?    

As a close observer of development in my city, Kuwait City, I have become increasingly aware of numerous noble attempts in a variety of areas, most notably architecture, to implement development that is sustainable and at harmony with the environment. The government, however, almost always supports the status quo and the bottom line, and adapting sustainable measures are often expensive. Change itself is controversial in Kuwait.

From my perspective as a woman professional and an avid student of economic development, the inherently conservative and brutally patriarchic nature of Kuwaiti society works to actively diminish the importance that is ascribed to development generally speaking and sustainable development in particular. From my perspective, women – heretofore largely excluded from the workplace – are the central key to development and without their widespread inclusion in the workforce, sustainable development in a globalized market will be impossible. Kuwait from my perspective suffers from a chronic lack of diversity in countless ways, in the workforce, the marketplace, much of this having to do with the fact that our entire economy rests on the foundation of oil, not a renewable resource.

This myopic vision of Kuwait as tied to fossil fuel extraction has resulted in environmentally destructive and socially disharmonizing methods of development, the costs of which Kuwaiti society will pay for generations to come for the foreseeable future. If we do not diversify our economy and our workforce and modernize in sustainable ways, our country will fall further behind the development curve and be unable to assimilate and compete in the global economy.

The government of Kuwait needs to implement strict environmental protections that rein in the contamination resulting from a host of industrial processes involved in oil production. The catastrophic methods that are currently utilized by the oil industry have turned Kuwait into one of the most polluted countries on Earth, with some of the highest rates on the planet of childhood health complications associated with poor air quality. The Kuwaiti government is guilty of promoting and implementing systemic, multi-generational sickness and death at worst, and complicit at least. How could the public galvanise themselves into an environmentally conscious mode of behaviour if the political forces elected to represent them are wholly complicit in the destruction of our environment?

Kuwait is in desperate need of many of the most modest of public investments in environmental welfare, such as community litter protocols and education programs, beach cleanup campaigns, and litter enforcement in particular. Of the few public parks that Kuwait has built for community recreation, fewer still are regularly maintained. Even then, cheap labor picks up the trash left behind by visitors. We need a public recycling campaign to capitalise on the enormous amounts of reusable plastics that cover our streets and choke our landfillls. Currently, there is only one private organisation that is making any efforts at recycling business and it is most limited.

The government needs invest proactively in the necessary infrastructure that would allow us to safely purify tap water so that bottled water is not the only option. Even the plastic bag surcharges or bans that have been implemented in other countries and municipalities are not yet seen in Kuwait. Yet, even these modest reforms undertaken in other parts of the world, if implemented in Kuwait, would have a favorable impact on the situation, serving to some extent to protect our communities from the harmful effects of environmental negligence, triggering consciousness raising on the part of the population so that they would learn to embrace and better appreciate the benefits of a clean, safe environment.

Sample 1st Paragraph MS Management Information Systems, Environmental Studies Major

I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Environmental Studies because this is where my principal passion lies in life, protecting our mother earth at the same time that we are able to thrive in sustainable ways, with human dignity. It is for this reason that my heart is set on a professional course that enables me to give me all to the cause of sustainable development in environmentally friendly ways, especially with respect to the Developing World. I fully realize, however, thankfully, that there are many applicants to positions of responsibility with NGOs that address these issues, and those who are selected tend to have earned a Master’s Degree and thereby have more to offer. I want to build a professional life focus not only on protecting our environment, but, more specifically, developing the kinds of innovation in information management that will continue to propel creative advancement in our struggle into the next generation. It is for this reason that I see your distinguished program at XXU to be the optimal springboard upon which to build a distinguished career as a soldier for the environment in the private sector, managing our information.


Geoscientists working in mining or the oil and gas industry sometimes process and interpret data produced by remote sensing satellites to help identify potential new mineral, oil, or gas deposits. Seismic technology also is an important exploration tool. Seismic waves are used to develop a three-dimensional picture of underground or underwater rock formations. Seismic reflection technology may also reveal unusual underground features that sometimes indicate accumulations of natural gas or petroleum, facilitating exploration and reducing the risks associated with drilling in previously unexplored areas.

Numerous subdisciplines or specialties fall under the two major disciplines of geology and geophysics that further differentiate the type of work geoscientists do. For example, petroleum geologists explore for oil and gas deposits by studying and mapping the subsurface of the ocean or land. They use sophisticated geophysical instrumentation, well log data, and computers to interpret geological information. Engineering geologists apply geologic principles to the fields of civil and environmental engineering, offering advice on major construction projects and assisting in environmental remediation and natural hazard reduction projects. Mineralogists analyze and classify minerals and precious stones according to composition and structure and study their environment in order to find new mineral resources. Paleontologists study fossils found in geological formations to trace the evolution of plant and animal life and the geologic history of the Earth. Stratigraphers study the formation and layering of rocks to understand the environment in which they were formed. Volcanologists investigate volcanoes and volcanic phenomena to try to predict the potential for future eruptions and possible hazards to human health and welfare.

Geophysicists may specialize in areas such as geodesy, seismology, or magnetic geophysics. Geophysicists study the size and shape of the Earth, its gravitational field, tides, polar motion, and rotation. Seismologists interpret data from seismographs and other geophysical instruments to detect earthquakes and locate earthquake-related faults. Geochemists study the nature and distribution of chemical elements in ground water and Earth materials. Geomagnetists measure the Earth's magnetic field and use measurements taken over the past few centuries to devise theoretical models to explain the Earth's origin. Paleomagnetists interpret fossil magnetization in rocks and sediments from the continents and oceans, to record the spreading of the sea floor, the wandering of the continents, and the many reversals of polarity that the Earth's magnetic field has undergone through time. Other geophysicists study atmospheric sciences and space physics.

Hydrology is closely related to the disciplines of geology and geophysics. Hydrologists study the quantity, distribution, circulation, and physical properties of underground and surface waters. They study the form and intensity of precipitation, its rate of infiltration into the soil, its movement through the Earth, and its return to the ocean and atmosphere. The work they do is particularly important in environmental preservation, remediation, and flood control.

Oceanography also has several subdisciplines. Physical oceanographers study the ocean tides, waves, currents, temperatures, density, and salinity. They study the interaction of various forms of energy, such as light, radar, sound, heat, and wind with the sea, in addition to investigating the relationship between the sea, weather, and climate. Their studies provide the Maritime Fleet with up-to-date oceanic conditions. Chemical oceanographers study the distribution of chemical compounds and chemical interactions that occur in the ocean and sea floor. They may investigate how pollution affects the chemistry of the ocean. Geological and geophysical oceanographers study the topographic features and the physical makeup of the ocean floor. Their knowledge can help oil and gas producers find these minerals on the bottom of the ocean. Biological oceanographers, often called marine biologists, study the distribution and migration patterns of the many diverse forms of sea life in the ocean.

Environmental Science and Sustainability as Especially Critical for the Developing World.

I have long cultivated a special focus on and concern for the Developing World. Sustainability is a concept of increasing importance to and a major goal of most environmentalists here in Latin America, where I live, as elsewhere. It describes the rate in which available resources are consumed. A situation is described as sustainable if resources can be replenished quicker than they can be consumed. Unsustainable refers to resources being consumed quicker than they can be replenished. Unsustainability is currently the norm. By one estimate it takes 14.4 months to replenish what people use in 12 months.

Among the major environmental problems that affect us here in Latin America are deforestation, water pollution, erosion, and the salinization of soil through over-irrigation. Pollution is not a major political issue among people living in the developing world. For the rural poor, the notion of being environmentally-friendly can often clash with the need to find food, water and fuel to cook with and heat their homes. Unfortunately, as more people earn more money, they want to buy cars and eat more environmentally-destructive foods.

This two-year, full-time program is also available for under 1000 USD and covers Environmental Sampling; Environmental Technology and Assessment; Modeling the Natural Environment; Advanced Environmental Sciences and Policy; and Applied Ecology.

If not, what about their M.Sc. in Environmental Sciences – Environmental Chemistry and Toxicology? It’s similar to the above, except that you’ll learn about toxicology, pollution ecology, environmental sampling, aquatic ecotoxicology and environmental chemistry.

The M.Sc. in Molecular Life Sciences at Wageningen University in the Netherlands prepares its students to work in fields like nanotechnology, biotechnology, environmental research, biomedical research and the food sciences. It cost 16,000 EUR for international students.

Feeling inspired by any of these options? There are so many opportunities out there, and as long as you are well-prepared and passionate about your work, you are guaranteed for success.

One of the hardest parts can be sending out applications. But with a well-written personal statement tailored just for you, you can quickly move forward and enjoy making your future humanitarian career a reality.

The need for companies to comply with environmental laws and regulations is expected to contribute to the demand for environmental scientists and some geoscientists, especially hydrologists and engineering geologists. Issues of water conservation, deteriorating coastal environments, and rising sea levels also will stimulate employment growth of these workers. As the population increases and moves to more environmentally sensitive locations, environmental scientists and hydrologists will be needed to assess building sites for potential geologic hazards and to address issues of pollution control and waste disposal. Hydrologists and environmental scientists also will be needed to conduct research on hazardous wastesites to determine the impact of hazardous pollutants on soil and groundwater so engineers can design remediation systems. The need for environmental scientists and geoscientists who understand both the science and engineering aspects of waste remediation is growing. An expected increase in highway building and other infrastructure projects will be an additional source of jobs for engineering geologists.

Employment of environmental scientists and geoscientists is more sensitive to changes in governmental energy or environmental policy than employment of other scientists. If environmental regulations are rescinded or loosened, job opportunities will shrink. On the other hand, increased exploration for energy sources will result in improved job opportunities for geoscientists.

The Federal Government is expected to increasingly outsource environmental services to private consulting firms. This lack of funding will affect mostly geoscientists performing basic research.

My service is quite different from other statement writing services on the Internet focused on Environmental Science and related areas. I am the little guy on the web, not a big business like most of my competitors. You deal directly with me. I answer all of your questions completely free of charge and I am solely responsible for producing a statement that you are very pleased with.

Please note that I attend to my clients in the order in which I have received their payments.
