My name is Denisa Mihu and I am a PhD student with in the Faculty of Physics - Department of Theoretical Physics within ''Alexandru Ioan Cuza" University of Iasi, Romania. I am deeply involved and passionate about my research into the this field of theoretical physics, more exactly astrophysics and cosmology. Even from my bachelor studies I manifested the interest in performing research activity, presenting my results into scientific conferences or talks. I emphasize that I want to explore the real problems of the world and try to discover how can I contribute in a proper, unique manner to the elucidation of some mystery within this world we live in.
Within the summer of 2015 I decided to access a research programme for international students within the University of Toronto, Canada. I succeeded to obtain the accept of collaboration with a leader within the field of theoretical astrophysics, Prof. Ue-Li Pen. I am excited and thrilled by the possibility to extend my studies and explore the quantum gravity theory explored through astrophysical tests. Genuine scientific work and the opportunity to interact with top scientists in the field are key points in my decision to access this programme at Toronto University. But, unfortunately, due to financial problems, I found myself in the impossibility of going to Toronto, so I could not embrace this fantastic chance as I planned.
There is also an additional reason, a powerful one for which I accessed the International Visiting Research Programme at Toronto University - A DREAM that I strongly believe in it and I choose to fight for it and never surrender - it is about gaining a place into a unique Master Programme in Theoretical Physics (more exactly, PSI Programme) at the University of Waterloo, Canada. I was absolutely attracted by the creativity this program encourages and stimulates and also by its way of promoting independent thinking for defining and solving real challenges within the field of theoretical physics. I do not believe in geniuses, but instead I think that there is only ardent passion and a vivid curiosity which can lead you towards the real valuable results. I am excited to know that there is such a unique program that encourages students to become people of value and not people of success (as Einstein also remarked).
In this respect, besides the valuable benefits I mentioned above, the research programme under the supervision of Prof. Pen at Toronto Uni would provide me with a genuine experience, would open me the gates to a wider range of opportunities, and finally would challenge my limits, my potential. All these will contribute significantly to improving my experience within the scientific research activity which may boost my chances into getting a place into PSI programme. I mention that I intend to apply in January 2016 for PSI, so I find the winter holiday a perfect time for going to Toronto and embrace the opportunity offered to me by Prof. Pen. To be surrounded by people which can help me evolve and develop my skills and my abilities within the research field is a real challenge and I don't want to waste my time. In these considerations, I want to ask from all my heart to offer me some support in pursuing my dream. But besides all these aspects, I am deeply determined to never give up, to have vision beyond my circumstances, to stay focused on my position and on my aspirations. Because an attitude of a warrior is to never surrender, to fight for his cause,and to look for the resources to stay on purpose and get over the obstacles. I have very close friends from my country in Toronto, more than a true family which will stay forever in my heart, who supported me more than I have imagined with my initiative, so I would be more than grateful to the help I may get here, to the people donating for my cause. It would be a surprise for them, as I informed them of abandoning the idea because I can't cover all the expenses. But in fact it is my dream and I will never give up, never surrender. I really love these people with all my heart for what they are, for what they instilled in my soul, for every valuable advice, for every kind word they addressed to me, for every moral support! The words are useless! Please, help me go there and be also some moments with they of Christmas when there is the perfect time to express the gratitude towards them.
More than this, it seems that gratefulness is a very revolutionary form of spirituality with deep implications into our mental and physical state. For eg., it could revolutionize the world common being which I find the supreme goal for humanity. JUST TAKE ONE MOMENT AND IMAGINE HOW WOULD LOOK THE STATE OF THE WORLD IF ALL THE PEOPLE WITHIN IT were living in harmony, peace and show compassion in every life situation? I really believe we, as individuals can make our world a better place, a worth one for a worth life, for a remarkable life!
'Lets practice gratitute as much as we can' sounds an advice from a specialist!
PLEASE, I WANT TO ASK YOU FOR YOUR HELP, FOR YOUR SUPPORT FROM ALL MY HEART!
I REALLY BELIEVE IN THIS PATH AND I KNOW I MUST VALUE IT, EMBRACE IT! PLEASE, I ASK FROM THE DEEPEST OF MY SOUL FOR SOME HELP!
Every amount of money counts!
I pray to God to spread his blessings upon you and your loved ones in every moment of your lives, in every place!
