I was always amazed how the human mind was able to construct the synthesis of such complicated compounds. I use my knowledge of drugs in my current job as a caregiver, where one of my tasks is handling medication intake of my patient.I apply chemistry to not only to my job, but also to life in general. Chemistry is hence a pillar in my life and career. Its application in my web programming knowledge has resulted into a website that will enable student generate synthetic approaches to molecules. Synthesizing compounds has made me think in more than one level which has helped me tremendously in life and made me anything but a conformist. I hope to work with the great Neil Garg, Ph.D and learn from his genius mind in UCLA. I have looked at his work in organic synthesis and would be honored to learn from him. I offer UCLA passion, dedication and hard work and have no doubt that I will prevail. I have laid out my qualifications and if you invest in me and allow me into your great university, I will be a positive net return for the UCLA community.I came to the United States from a small country called Armenia. I was isolated from my peers and felt the pressure to fit into the Westernized culture. My inability to communicate in English and lack of any friends made my transition a difficult one. In the limited time that I had, I managed to learn and master English and excel middle school. By high school I had learned the English language so well, that I was placed in honors English class due to my good mastery and command of English. Life was beginning to turn for me for the first time in the U.; I had friends and a great life, I was no longer secluded and felt-at-home. In high school, something tragic happened that forever changed my life. My mother, at age 39, was diagnosed with stage 4 skin cancer. The next 6 months were the longest and most painful months of my life which was followed by more pain and misery when my mother died. I discovered that the greatest pain a human can feel is seeing someone in misery and not having the possibility to help. I watched my mother struggle and die in 6 months and there was not a thing I could do about it.The death of my mother was a challenge and a set back to my studies. I felt like I should just drop out of school as I could not see any sense in living. In fact after death of my mother, I was on the verge of suicide and school was the last thing I could think
