Research Writer Interview With Rene
Scholastic Research and Master's in Dreams
We are all unique. We all possess different passions, histories, and choices that put us on our own path. The following essay will serve as a self interview. Who I am, my interests and educational background, and why I believe I am an excellent research writer will be discussed; together, these components provide a screen shot of the many facets of who I am today.
If I were to poll people I know, asking them "who am I?" I would probably receive a multitude of answers. From my perspective I am a 35 year old single divorced mother, well traveled and well educated. My divorce came at a time in life that changed who I am fundamentally. My father passed away three days prior to my ex-husband's decision to end our six year marriage. I became a single mother in South Africa; 8000 miles away from home. It is the hard times that show us who are true friends really are; only a few people made that list. It took two years before I was granted the permission to return home, to the US, with my now 8 year old son. My best friend provided us a place to stay while I finished my Master's research thesis and regrouped. These experiences made me a better friend; I no longer need nor want superficial relationships. I have chosen to put my all into the people who helped me through the past few years. I am a loving mother who does copious research on teaching through empathy, as I am keenly aware that I am raising boy who will one day be a man of his own. Above all I am strong, thanks in no small part to the people who have loved me unconditionally and helped me fulfill my personal and professional interests.
My interests have almost always been scholastic. I do not say this based on what I think you, as the reader, would want to hear. It is true. As an undergraduate I studied and worked full-time, graduating with a 3.68 GPA. I have a Bachelor's of Science in Sociology. I was interested in the biology behind what makes us tick and the environmental factors that contribute to who we are. I wanted to study African Politics, so I studied abroad in Dakar, Senegal. I was interested in post-Apartheid South Africa, so I moved to South Africa and studied a Master's in History. I had to leave the program due to a complicated pregnancy and returned years later, this time with an interest in Politics. Though I was going through personal hardships, I earned an equivalent of a 4.0 GPA. I wanted show my son, no matter what life throws at you, through persistence and the loyalty of good friends you can master your dreams.
The above is what makes me a good research writer. I love to learn. When I completed my Master's research I felt somewhat empty. I wanted to do more. Thankfully, due to modern technology, I can continue research in many fields. I can expand my mind and horizons, all from the comfort of my home. My love of learning, determination, and background make me a great research writer.
To conclude, what makes me who I am stems from having overcome hardships and a refusal to give up on my educational pursuits. I am a mother, a friend, a daughter and a scholar. I am grateful for the opportunities my education has given me; I can work in fields I love from home while raising my son. This is where I am meant to be.
