My name is Shahad, and I am studying business at Fujairah Women’s College. God willing I will graduate after 2 years in 2008. I am a writer and a poet. I like writing especially at night and my best friend is my pen. Actually it’s more than friend; it’s the breast from which I exhale my sadness and susceptibility through.
I believe that there are several things common to writing and being an entrepreneur. Being a writer greatly helps me to understand how might I be a successful entrepreneur who can take a plunge and test the waters. For instance, I’ve learned how to measure my success if I write a poem by observing the response of people around me who are interested more in my success than simply accommodating me. If I set up my own business I will be better able to measure the extent to which my customer will like it, and whether it's genuinely attractive to them or not.
In general I am a quiet person. However, as recently as a month ago I thought that I was sufficiently outgoing, but while recently attending an entrepreneur conference in Dubai I came to realize my need to be more outgoing and am working on it now. What attracts me most about people is their honestly, but I know that in my business life I may have to deal with people who are not my cup of tea. Being a writer also helps me with this because it has given me a lot of experience in this field.
My role models in life are my eldest sister, who is an entrepreneur, and Fatime Bint Mobarak because of her achievements in life. I am also a designer and I hope I can set up a business with concern for young nationals, helping them to express themselves and awaken the creativity which is dormant inside them. I believe that being a national entrepreneur can help me to do effective work for them, and become a role model myself.
When I graduate I want first to work at any successful company which will help me to earn sufficient capital for me to start my business. I will also gain more experience while learning from the style of each manager there, and observing how they manage to reach their goals. Then I will be ready to start.
One of my life's goals is getting a very high degree. I understand that it's difficult in my case to go further than Fujairah to study, so presently I don't have a clear picture of my academic future. I hope I can get a higher degree than a high school/undergraduate? diploma, but the main and major goal is to be a successful entrepreneur and a famous writer because I believe in my ability to meet my well-envisioned goals.
I think you meant to say envisioned there, but I might be wrong. It's better form to avoid single sentence paragraphs, unless they are quite long and inclusive. That's why I combined yours with their relevant paragraphs. It really would be best for you to take both versions of this text to someone that can instruct you further as to the reasons for the changes made. There are certain to be a few more mistakes that I didn't catch or have even contributed, but it's mostly good.
Good luck with everything!
