Write an essay where you tell us about what drives you in your pursuit of your graduate degree.
I plan to work for non profit groups such as Engineers without Borders and Water for People to design and implement safe sanitary and clean drinking water systems to communities in need. Similar to everyone having a full stomach at night and a roof over their head, I believe that both of safe sanitary and clean drinking water are necessities to human life and should be a human right. The gap between the rich and poor has always been established but it is also constantly growing in size and that is not helping the world become united. One step towards closing this gap is providing safe sanitary systems and clean drinking water to every human living on Earth. Closing this gap has inspired me to pursue my graduate degree because I am passionate about both helping people and engineering.
