Subject: Statement of Purpose for studying for Diploma in Computer Programmer in Lambton College, Canada

Dear Sir/Madam,

Personal Introduction:

I am very delighted to introduce myself as XYZ, a permanent resident of ABC, born on DOB, son of Mr. ABC and Mrs. DEF. I am a good listener and a good student I can work hard to achieve my goals. I am confident and patient, with a positive attitude, and I believe in myself to pursue life goals.

Academic Achievements:

I have completed my Secondary Education Examination (SEE) – Grade 10 from XYZ School, one of the most reputed Secondary schools of ABC, securing a Grade Point Average (GPA) of X out of Y in Year. I continued my further education by joining the Science stream at ABC College, Kathmandu, and completed my National Examination Board (NEB)- Grade (10+2) with a decent Grade Point Average (GPA) of X out of Y in Year. After completing of my high school, I took my time to study my interests where I was able to acknowledge my strength and goals in Computer Programming. 

Work Experience and Gap Explanation:

After I completed high school in 2019, I got an opportunity as a junior data entry operator to enhance my computer skills from January 2020 to now. I collected and entered data in databases and maintained accurate records of valuable company information from source documents within time limits. This enabled me to deepen my knowledge about basic computer skills needed in this age and get real-world experience. I did a project in grade 11 to make a website of my own choice using HTML and CSS. I felt happy as I could show my imagination and my creativity on a website. I did my training for Java script for 3 months to be prepared for this course and the challenges ahead. I got my basic knowledge about JavaScript and did small projects like tic tac toe, simple quizzes, basic calculator, etc. 

Moreover, I have decent proficiency in the English language as exhibited by my overall score of 71 on my PTE (Pearson Test of English) test (Speaking-71, Reading-79, Writing-71, Listening-69). 

Why Computer Programmer:

When I was 7 years old, my father brought a Nokia phone and that astounded me as I was seeing a digital machine for the first time. At that time curiosity inside me swelled up like how the things on the screen changed as I pressed the buttons of the phone. As time passed on, I realized everything around me was digitalizing and it was programmed to do specific tasks like in a calculator. I was astonished to see unique programs like face detection, automated driving, voice recognition, and so many websites and mobile applications. The desire to learn, create and solve problems in programming has been the driving force to choose this field. Computer programming is important today because so much of our world is automated. Learning the fundamentals of programming can set me apart from my counterparts, giving me a competitive edge in this technology-driven world. After my graduation, the pathways I can take are web developer, mobile application developer, SQL developer, database tester, etc.

Why Lambton College:

Lambton College is a well-recognized public college located in a vibrant and diverse city in Canada. The field I was pursuing since my childhood, Lambton is the best fit I found with my extensive research with affordable fees, a strong curriculum, and expert tutors. Lambton College has more than 90 post-secondary programs and apprenticeships, academic upgrading, post-graduate, part-time, and training programs. Lambton College provides state-of-the-art facilities to its students and constantly upgrades them to ensure they remain on pace with technology. At Lambton College, I will get the platform to interact with globally renowned faculty and a diverse student community and develop interpersonal skills and comfort on a global scale. This would bridge my knowledge gap and furnish me with an expertise that would enable me to stay competent in the global scenario Thus, I chose Lambton college for my academic endeavor. 

Why Not a Home Country:

With extensive research, I have found that this program is being offered by good colleges and universities in Nepal as well. However, The Education system of Nepal is mainly based on the theoretical with the traditional syllabus being repeated for several years. No one talks about new innovative ideas and a new way of teaching which leads to a lack of international exposure for the students. Similarly, the degree from Nepal is not globally recognized. I want a positive environment to study which is free from politics and only focuses on providing quality education to students and this is also one of the reasons why I opted for foreign education. 

Why Canada Over Other Countries:

Canada consistently ranks as one of the best countries in the world with internationally recognized education which attracts students for its safety also. Canada is an international leader in computer and information technologies. Besides, it is a country that patronizes Science and Technology in the way to achieve social progress and improve human life. I am certain that the education that I am going to pursue in Canada will add incredible qualities to my academic profile and will empower me to be competitive in the worldwide market. Before choosing Canada as my study destination, I researched other countries. UK, USA, and Australia have high exchange rates and expensive tuition fees. The European countries have some language barriers which will make me difficult for me to stay and study. All these factors coupled together Canada an ideal place to pursue my further studies.

Future Prospective:

I believe that I will be well equipped with all the knowledge, skills, and technical advancement needed to start a career as a computer programmer once I graduate from Canada. This professional education will prepare me to stand out from the crowd and enrich my profile by unlocking top employment opportunities. This qualification also enables me to settle down in my own country, in any public or private company, and give wings to my Computer Programmer Career. I will be qualified to get the designation of a Web developer, Mobile Application developer, SQL developer, Database tester, etc. After the completion of my Diploma, I shall work for top IT companies such as Leapfrog Technology Inc, Fuse Machines Inc, Cotiviti Nepal Pvt, and Cloud Factory, where I can get a high-paying job as Mobile Application Developer, Web Developer, SQL Developer, and Database Tester. The opportunities in Nepal in the field of Computer Programmer are immense. Likewise, I want to pursue my career as a Full-stack Developer and get the feeling of joy to create creative and interactive websites. With enough experience and a degree from a reputed Lambton College, I am confident to get the job in Fuse Machines Inc as a Web Developer with high pay ranging from NPR 80,000 – 120,000. After abundant experience in the best IT companies, I want to work for the government as the websites are lacking a lot. When applying for this program, the documents I had to make from government websites made me disheartened as it was less interactive and unintelligible. I want to reform the government websites and their reliability. 

As Nepal is a land-locked country its development from the outer source is difficult, the only prominent source to uplift the present condition (developing phase) is the mobilization of local resources which is impossible without development in the IT sector. I believe my dedication and experience can play a prominent part in bringing out the change.

Incentives To Return:

I was born and raised in my country by my parents and investing in my education since my childhood. My parents have never deprived me of anything I wanted and supported me in every possible way. I have a huge responsibility towards my parents who made me who I am today and to my beautiful country Nepal. The forces like my family, my plans, my friends, my visions, etc. will drive me back to Nepal. After my graduation, I will have my parents, siblings, friends, and other relatives, here in Nepal to support me to achieve my aim rather than struggling in loneliness. 

Financial Arrangements:

My family is very excited about my further education in Canada. They are so well assured that my education in Canada will help me achieve my career goals and a future dream. Therefore, they are more than willing to sponsor all my expenses that will occur while I study in Canada. My father, ABC is working as an XYZ. My mother, BCD is working as ABC in XYZ. My maternal uncle and maternal aunt will also be sponsoring me for my temporary stay in Canada. My maternal uncle, ABC is a businessman and runs a business named XYZ. My maternal aunt, ABC is also a businesswoman and runs her own business named BCD. I want to assure you that my parents, maternal uncle, and aunt are more than capable of covering my living expenses and tuition fees during my stay in Canada. Besides this, my mother has an optional saving balance of 47,131 Canadian dollars.  

These savings will be utilized for every sort of cost for my stay in Canada. I will make sure to utilize every investment in me supported by my parents, maternal uncle, and aunt.

Last Words:

I am very grateful to you for giving me your valuable time to process my student visa application. I wish to nourish myself at prestigious Lambton College, Canada with capability and experience which will help me build my strong career and as well help to serve in Nepal.  Also, I am fully aware of Canadian law, rules, and regulations and would not involve myself in breaching any of my visa conditions and I mercifully request you to process my visa application at the earliest continence.
