James Brown is an intelligent, ingenious andself-motivated international student from Azerbaijan, who holds an innateenthusiasm to excel and succeed in the corporate business world.
Having beenraised in a war zone,I experienced first-hand the intricacies of accessing education, given that my familywas internally displaced by the incessant war in Azerbaijan. However, I wasable to continue with my education, having been raised in a family that holds aheritage of scholarly success in the midst of a disintegrating socio-economicinfrastructure. My father is a chess grandmaster, while my mother is amathematician, and my grandparents were mathematicians in the Soviet Union. Itis in this background that I have nurtured the zeal to succeed regardless ofany prevailing disadvantageous circumstances that would otherwise impede myprogress. Through the mentorship of my family I was able to enroll in the BScEconomics- Finance program at the Azerbaijan State University of Economics,where I obtained the President’s Full Scholarship as exemplified in my resume.In order to pursue my scholarly and professional aspirations, I seek admittanceinto theSTEM-designated, Masterof Science in Business Analytics programat the XXXX University.
