Personal Statement for The UK Exceptional Talent VISA (TechNation)
Your personal statement is one of the most important documents you will have to submit in your quest to being endorsed by Tech City UK a.k.a Tech Nation for the Exceptional Talent VISA. In this new video, I break down and give insight on how to go about writing your personal statement.
Since I applied twice (failed once and was successful in the second application), I have first hand experience and knowledge on what not to do and what to do or write about during your application process. I believe the personal statement is your time to be “empathic” and “human”, you want to write and make your personal statement feel like a “story” rather than a brag filled document.
Ofocurse, your personal statement should contain talks and highlights of your accolades, startups or even ideas but it shouldn’t come off “braggadocios”, it should make the reader feel like they have the power to change your life by giving you the endorsement based on what they’ve read. To summarize in two words, I’ll say “sound human”.
People love humans and love to help their fellow human especially when you deserve it.
I hope you enjoyed the video and and gained some knowledge or insight on how to write your personal statement for the Tech Nation World Leading Exceptional Talent VISA.

Getting endorsed by TechNation is not an easy task but trust me, all the labour, time, resources and sweat you put into your application would be worth it at the end of the day when you get endorsed, I am a living testimony to that. After applying and not being endorsed the first time, I knew that wouldn’t be the end – I knew I deserved to be endorsed, so, I applied again. This time with more thought-out documents and structure and the rest is history, I got endorsed!
Nothing changed about me, my qualifications or experience – what changed was the structure of my documents and its content layout. I took a lot of time to re-construct and structure my document into what Tech Nation wanted to see and because I know this can be time consuming, daunting and lowkey frustrating, I have spent ample time in creating “Done for you”, “Fill in the gap” document templates for Personal Statement, CV, and 3 Recommendation Letters structure that will save you time, help you avoid having to look at a blank page without knowing what to write and help you get your application submitted faster to avoid being late due to the very limited number of applicants endorsed each year. My templates for CV, Personal Statement and Recommendation Letters will make your life easier and also make the life of the companies or experts you will be reaching out to for letters easier because they will have a format and structure to follow in their letter to ensure they hit all the points about you Tech Nation wants to read and see. You will get access to the Templates and also HD videos of me explaining each aspect of the template.
