I have written my personal statement however I am finding it hard to find a civil engineer who can give me some feedback. I would appreciate anyone in the civil engineering field to read it and tell me what I can improve. My school unfortunately predicts low so my personal statement needs to stand out. Thank you!

I don't advise you to give anyone your personal statement to read it as they can easily copy and paste it as their own. Give it to a trust-able person.

I understand, do you think I can email engineering companies so they could give me feedback on my personal statement? I am really struggling content wise as to what to write even though I have finished writing it. :ahhhhh:

I'm a medical student but I advise you to look at personal statements for the course you are interested in, ask around, meet students who are currently doing this course, maybe they could help.
It' also best if you can cohere your thoughts why you want to do the course in a fancy, formal manner.
It's also good to read here and there and explore the course personally which might give you more thought about your personal statement and what you should be involving to make it stand out.

Oh right, well thank you for the advice. I probably would have fallen into the trap of giving my personal statement blindly to someone. I will ask around and read around the course, thanks!

I'm a Civil Engineer if you have any questions. I probably won't be able to reply until late tomorrow though. PM me if you like.
