I have always been passionate about learning about other people and their way of life. My main interest was in their behaviors and why people behave the way they do. My interest in this area was aroused by my constant travel around the world where I observed people behaving in all type of manners. When I was young, my parents always recommend some books or movie about people's behavior. Up to now, I will watch some documentaries about the behaving of humans. During time of distress such as during a disaster. It is from these many international travels that inspired to pursue a career in behavioral sciences. I was passionate about other people who were in great need being helped. Also, I tried to imagine how it would feel if I was an active participant in this process.

My decision to study outside my home country was informed by my desire to learn more about the behavior of people from different parts of the world. I felt that if I attended the local universities in Hong Kong, I would miss out on this opportunity as I would only be interacting with the people from China. Since I was born and raised up in this country, I clearly understand the behavioral dynamics and so I would learn very little from them. However, in an international institution of learning, I would be in a position to interact with people from all parts of the world. Through interacting with these people, I will be in a position to understand the cause of the behavioral differences that exists between people of different parts of the world.

One of my greatest passions is following on what is happening on both the local and the international arena. I therefore spend a lot of my free time either reading newspapers, watching news channels especially the international channels and sometimes listening to news. Every time I am either reading, watching or listening to news, I always find myself giving a lot of attention to news about people in unfortunate situations that lead to immense suffering. These situations include wars and natural calamities such as floods and earthquakes. I am particularly concerned about the way in which the rescuers and other people involved in the response handle the situation. In most instances, it is apparent that these people understand very little about the psychology and the behavior of the victims. The kind of assistance that the victims get is also deficient as those responding to the disasters only concentrate on the physical aspects of the situation by offering material help to the affected people while ignoring the psychological aspect of the situation. Although the provision of basic needs such as shelter, medication and food is the immediate need that should be prioritized, the psychological needs of the victims should also be prioritized. In an ideal situation, there should be parallel psychological services that run together with the other types of aid.

Based on my interest as well as my knowledge on the field of behavioral sciences, I have always been given duties that required some background in human behavior. In my high school, there was a welfare club that was formed to deal with the social welfare of the students especially those social events that could affect their behavior. I was chosen to be the chairman of this welfare organization because many felt that I had the required competencies of holding such a position. The mandate of this organization was to identify those students who may be experiencing social problems and engage them in some form of counseling.

Since my high schools years, I have been very active in games. My favorite sport is golf and I really enjoy its challenging nature. The game also helps me in keeping fit as it involves a lot of walking. During play golf, I learned how to control my stress and make a good decsion.

 

In conclusion, it is my desire to work in an environment that gives me an opportunity to change lives. The reason why I decided to major in behavioral sciences is because I have always wanted to help those in need and I felt this was the way to go. It is my greatest hope that once I finish my studies, I will be able to work in an environment where I will be able to help people.
