Master's Degree SLP Personal Purpose

Updated: Jun 7

I always hoped to be able to make direct and beneficial differences to the lives of others. I came to speech therapy because of problems suffered by a young relation, Elias. Because of his difficulties in obtaining an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment, I became aware of a shortage of speech therapy expertise in my country of Saudi Arabia. I decided to become part of the solution to the problem by acquiring a qualification and experience in the field. I have never regretted my decision. My goal is to become an expert practitioner, to undertake research and to share my passion by teaching.

I have accrued clinical and research experience over the last two years, in my home country. It is an indication of my potential that I was also offered the opportunity to teach at such an early stage. My training has been supplemented by attendance at various symposia and conventions. I met XXXX, lecturer at Queen’s College, NY, on the flight to the ASHA 2015 convention. A lengthy conversation ended with her telling me that it was clear to her that I had made the right choice in life, this provided an enormous boost to my confidence.

The most important lesson learned in my clinical exposure has been that it takes a special type of person to treat speech disorders that; empathy, exceptional levels of patience and determination, and first-class communication skills are vital. I would not apply if I were not convinced that I possess these characteristics. I have a solid academic record and have received various honors and awards in my academic career including first place in the Second Research Forum in my undergraduate program. I have also undertaken significant volunteer work and have acquired some experience of leadership, for example, by being elected class leader


and acting as a representative on my student council.

I am excited to be engaged in a field in which significant and constant advances in techniques and tools are made and it is my hope to assist in future progress. I am particularly interested in research in the areas of cochlear implant patients, auditory verbal therapy, bilingualism, Arabic language milestones and pediatric swallowing.

I know that cultural awareness and sensitivity are vital in this field. I enjoy learning about other cultures and sharing information about my own. I have lived in the UK and travelled in Europe, the US and beyond. My native language is Arabic, and I am fluent in English and have basic fluency in French. I seek to be a well-rounded person and pursue several hobbies and pastimes to this end.

I am drawn to your program because of the high graduate school ranking, the extremely high rate of successful student outcomes, the opportunities to undertake both clinical and research work, the prestigious faculty, and the first-rate facilities.

In a short career I have acquired clinical, research and teaching experience. This provides a firm foundation for success in the program.
