MS Food Science, Safety, Personal Statement

Having reached a point in my professional career where I feel I have exhausted every path of opportunity and challenge at my current scholastic level, I am eager to embark upon the next chapter in the only field of academics that has ever brought me the greatest level of personal and professional satisfaction: Food Science. For years, I have been fascinated by the miraculous application of technology to the social issues and problems that scientists and politicians alike face concerning food science and nutrition.

When things go wrong, as with the salmonella outbreak from peanut-butter-based products, or the recent epidemic of swine flu, food scientists/technologists are called upon for answers, guidance, and future checks and balances. In less extreme moments, consumers take for granted the input of food science in their daily lives. That level of assurance and confidence in the safety of the food they consume translates into a sacred trust in my mind. To their continued safety and peace of mind, I will give all that I am.

For over a decade, I have proven my trans-systemic academic performance in biochemistry, botany, zoology, and chemistry reflecting a zeal for the sciences, as well as a solid grasp of scientific principles, proven and tempered by extensive research and industrial experiences. As a self-motivated and dedicated individual, my passion for food and science has led me to pursue a master's program in Food Science. Throughout my career, I have had an equal ability to work independently or as part of a team of scientists, technicians, and supporting staff. My vast experience in various positions with increasing responsibility, culminating in my current managerial role in a small-scale food industry, has honed my skills in applying scientific principles to address real-world issues. Achieving this position would have been impossible without having completed years of research with a pharmaceutical company.

My experience working in the commercial food industry has given me invaluable insight into identifying the needs of my company and designing and implementing effective solutions to both industrial and consumer problems. As a result, I have developed a keen eye for cost reduction and customer satisfaction. These skills and experiences have prepared me perfectly for the challenges of an MS Program in Food Science. The work was challenging and dynamic and I was eager to take the next step, for myself, the benefit of my company, and the people we serve.

The Food Science and Safety Program at the University of ____ stands out from the background noise of other schools. I see it as the most innovative in its league, and where I can receive the finest educational experience possible in Food Science, not just with impressive faculty, but also a diverse and accomplished student body, and excellent access to resources and research centers. The curriculum represents a breadth, autonomy, and relevance that is unsurpassed. I look forward with great eagerness to this next chapter of my life at ____.
