The Original Motivational Letter
The University of Malta – Motivational Letter
First Preference Course Name
Bachelor of Laws (Honours)
Course Start Date
1 October 2014
To Whom It May Concern,
I would like to take this opportunity to apply for the above listed course with The University of Malta, as per my online application for mature age entry.
It’s taken me years to figure out what I want to do with my life; I was born into Domestic Violence from the very start and at only twenty one, I was enduring divorce and custody battles, as a result of marital violence fuelled by an alcoholic spouse.
I’ve spent sixteen years raising two children single handedly with limited support from extended family members; and the past eighteen months fulfilling my travel dreams, which resulted in a marriage to a local.
As a result of blowing the whistle on a police officer for sexual assault in Australia, I’ve been subjected to in-conceivable levels of police corruption carried forward from place to the next, sabotaging the opportunity for perfectly good relationships and the right to a fair go; which throughout the years, has given me a VERY STRONG SENCE FOR JUSTICE and intelligence training beyond my years.
As a result of my said experiences, I have represented myself in court dealing with diverse areas of law, in particular, civil and criminal cases. This entailed intensive research of the relevant act’s and the study of sections and sub-sections in preparation for on-coming hearings; and furthermore, compiling and submitting (singlehandedly) all documentation in due course directly with the courts. I’ve also had firsthand experience in cross-examining a witness and from that very moment, my passion to enter the legal arena was born.
By scanning through my attached CV, you will discover that I am currently establishing a tell all website and a campaign (starting at a slow pace) to raise awareness of domestic violence among other things, in hope to assist other’s suffering in silence; I am also pursuing appointments with the relevant ministers of Malta in order to move forward.
I am very committed and hungry for the opportunity to be counted as a legal representative with a country that is very close to my heart, to put all this experience to good use for the mutual benefit.
Thank you, for your time and I look forward to the opportunity of an interview, to further discuss my suitability for entry into The Bachelor of Laws commencing 1st October, 2014.

Voicebohx - Speak Up!
The 'Speak Up' Campaign was established to raise awareness for children and women in this country who are experiencing Domestic Violence and what's worse, suffering in silence.
Violence against women and specifically gender based violence is an extensive Human Rights Abuse that we can no longer afford to overlook.
42,000 women across 28 member states of the European Union were asked about their experiences of physical, sexual and psychological violence, including incidence of intimate partner violence...
What emerges is a picture of extensive abuse that affects many women’s lives but is systematically under reported to authorities (a) in fear of not being believed and (b) in fear of not finding the help after reporting incidents of abuse; there is still a lack of awareness. Only 14% of women reported their most serious incident of intimate partner violence to the police...
It is clear with the publication of these results, that the time is now ripe to address violence against women on the basis of the evidence supplied by the EU Wide Survey carried over 28 countries. (http://media.wix.com/ugd/bf9277_f423df924a1243be8bb08a54ab6eac48.pdf)

An Article Against Animal Cruelty:
(...I was at the research library all morning doing this article to post online but halfway through it, I was asked to leave and told about the half an hour limit for the first time since reentering Valletta. It's all good. I stopped typing, saved my work and complied; and went to Costa Coffee WiFi to upload it)
I was walking late at night in the streets of Valletta and noticed this helpless bird in the corner shivering. I was informed by a local that he was thrown from five stories high by a construction worker who found the nest on top of the building he was working on. The bird was not ready to fly, he was a baby. I tried to move him with a heavy heart. As I lifted his left wing, I noticed bruising and swelling underneath (all the way down to his left foot). I couldn’t understand the mentality of the idiot who was responsible for this. I fetched a clean box from the rubbish dump and tore an old pair of pants I was carrying around to use as a base for the inside and collected this bird. The next morning I went over to Floriana to take some dry cat food from a public access area (across the road from the police station); but the lady who puts it there was watching from her window and the next day removed it. I went to St Mother Therea’s Sisters in Borlma who gave me change for the bus and instead I spent it on dry cat food to feed this little fella (which I softened with water). Each morning I would wake up and hold my breath while opening the box he rested in, in fear that I would find a stiff bird but he made it. I ensured the box he slept in was cushioned in such a way that it would prevent him from movement and within two weeks he was making progress. He was emotionally responding, flapping his right wing every time he noticed me peaking from the hole of the box I created (so he could breath). Then one evening and much to my surprise he stood up on both legs all on his own and for me, a sigh of relief that he would walk again and even fly. Lucky the damage was to his hip not to his wing. Someone left a bird cage out for me to collect for the pigeon but I believe ‘those who can fly belong in the sky’; and hoped one day he too would experience his full potential. A few days later I put him on the ground with the other pigeons to integrate him and with a limp, he came running back – he wasn’t ready. I researched remedies for pigeons and found an expert online from Italy, they are Italian birds after all, who advised mixing garlic in his food. It made my pigeon throw up a few times but he was still getting enough to boost his immune system and kill the parasites in his body. He is cleaner than me. I picked all his fleas off and wash him daily but that’s not all. After four weeks he was strong enough to fly and began flying off my shoulder each morning on St George Square to follow the other birds but my concern is he doesn’t fear humans and in Malta, many take the view of hatred against these highly intelligent animals; I believe it’s because the authority has been given to shoot them down, which is now a patchwork of the criminal code to control their numbers BUT this to me makes no sense, as birds are not pests. The biggest pest to humanity and the environment is us!
GOD GIVES US AMINALS TO ENJOY NOT TO DESTROY and The REAL JOY in all this is the LOVE experienced and the bond we share.
Love is what life is all about, it’s the reason we are born but we’re good at stuffing it all up and destroying everything God’s gives us to help us experience it. God puts life in animal’s like he puts life in us and WE don’t have the right to destroy them; in Malta and the BULLSHIT law’s to destroy them is evident of a typical patriacle system that is stale and no longer serving the people of 2017 a purpose, as it seeks to destroy everything it can’t control (and that includes the way women are treated in this culture - as the control is being lost, the violence against women increases - just have a good look at the epidemic regarding domestic violence figures in Malta; evident of a system that's just not working) ...and what I for one, have to endure to get justice against violence against women - you can read all about it on http://chatterbohxpress.wix.com/voicebohx
