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.
