From my family backgrounds, I have three brothers and four sisters. I can say that I normally feel fortunate to have been from such a large family where every member of the family treats the other with a lot of respect and dignity. In our family, we normally encourage one another to pursue things that will enable all of us prosper in our lives. Being the oldest child in our family, I normally advice and encourage my little brothers and sisters to put more efforts in their studies.

I hence can state that I am both mentor and role model to my brothers and sisters as well as to my cousins.
In addition, I always like to look nice and that is why I usually dress like a gentleman. I love fashions and I enjoy purchasing the latest designs of clothes. I have different types of fashion and I normally wear clothes depending on the time of the week as well as where I am going. For example, if I am going for a formal meeting, I normally wear suits in order to appear presentable.

I also like to be always clean and that I why I normally wash my clothes on regular basis. I therefore can say that I love to look nice and to be clean.
It is worth stating that I have travelled to many places and I have met with people of diverse cultural backgrounds. Some of the places that I have visited include Saudi Arabia, London, Paris, America and Dubai. These travelling experiences have offered me a chance to meet and interact with many people of different nationalities as well as religious backgrounds. In addition, these travelling experiences have also changed my perception towards how I perceive the world. It has broadened my thinking and enabled me realize that the world is changing and we are currently living in a global village. Therefore, I personally think that I am an individual who is exposed to the world affairs.
I have lived in both United States and Saudi Arabia. This implies that I have experienced both the American and Saudi Arabia culture. When I came in America, I experienced communication difficulties because I never knew English. This forced me to learn English in order to be able to effectively communicate and interact with other people having in mind that America encompasses people of diverse cultural backgrounds. I therefore joined English classes to learn English as my second language. Initially, I found it hard to learn English but with time, I was able to learn and emerge victorious. I can now read, write and communicate in English effectively and also speak fluently. This experience thus shows that I am self confident and committed to achieve what I want in my life.

I also like sharing my experiences with my friends and new people as well as listening to their experience. I can hence say that I am assertive listener and I embrace multiculturalism.
I have passion for learning English language and this has led me to various extra-curricular activities. Over the past two years, I have personally attended at various youth theatres to watch dramas and live performances. I also enjoy going out with my friends to watch live performances. By watching at various live performances, this helps me to learn and experience cultures of other people. In addition, by being with friends in such events, this helps me to learn from them how they perceive different cultures. It as well helps me to improve my communication skills as I have always not been afraid of speaking in English even during the time when I had not mastered the language properly. This hence shows that I have confidence in myself and I like expressing my views to others.
Furthermore, I enjoy playing long tennis and basket ball with my friends. I also enjoy going to watch football matches with my friends during weekends. These extra-curricular activities normally help me to spend my free time wisely and to avoid engaging myself in destructive activities such as drug abuse. I am also normally selective in choosing my friends because I do not like the company of bad people. I also encourage children to live positive lives because I am also involved in a drug abuse campaign where we educate the youths about the negative impacts of substance abuse. In this respect, I can say that I am a caring person and I am always committed towards improving the welfare of the society.

In addition, I enjoy the idea that I will be able to take some time with my patients and hence I will be able to build good relationship with my patients.
In addition, I am involved in various volunteer activities and these experiences have made me to develop interest in dentistry. In those activities, I have been able to learn how to effectively connect with individuals from diverse social backgrounds and ages. Volunteering in the local community project that involved interacting with children, I have learned how I can use simple vocabulary and soothing tone in order to ensure that the children are comfortable. I have also worked at a center for the disabled adults and this experience helped to learn how I can gauge emotional status of all individuals in order to tailor the content and style of communication appropriately.

Apart from having the passion for helping other people by reducing their suffering, I also want to become a dentist because I want to improve the wellbeing of other people in both my community as well as in the entire society. I am confident that dentistry is the field that will enable me to combine my leadership aptitude with my urge for interpersonal interaction. I want to be working together as a team with my fellow dentist in order to exhibit and exercise strong communication and leadership skills. I personally embrace the great opportunity of putting my academic and communication skills to effective use as I work towards maintaining the health of many people.
