Describe an important decision that you made - ENGLISH TEACHER

I would like to describe my decision to my university - University of Pedagogy. Almost everyone may think that this will be another story about argument between children and their parents about following their dreams. But you may feel surprise when you finish reading my story.

I am a girl with plenty of abilities but nothing is my strength. The girl like me can never stay in a mood for a long time. I easily get bored when doing one thing for a long time. I like changes and new things.

In secondary school, I took part in The Good Students completion in Biology. However, I chose Physics to study at Le Quy Don high school for the gifted. But I turned to study Literature because my Literature teacher who was also my homeroom teacher was so great, which caused me to study Literature quite well, that I had dreamed of being a Literature teacher.

And that is how the story began. I wanted to be a literature teacher while my dad wanted me to be a teacher of English. I wonder if I should follow my dream or fulfill my dad's wish. I asked my homeroom teacher for advice. She said "Following your dream is good but it would be better if you can fulfill your parents' wish. Furthermore, you are also good at English". I was quite good at both English and Literature. It took my times to think of which career I should have in the future. Also, my father didn't make any pressure on my choice.

At the end, I took the entrance exam to be a teacher of English. This has made a lot of change and challenge in my life. I was quite surprise when knowing the news that I had won a place at University of Pedagogy in teacher of English. On the first day at school, I was overwhelmed because almost my classmates came from high school for the gifted in English and most of them have had at least one certificate in English such as Olympic, The Good Students competition, TOIEC, IELTS and etc. They are so excellent, which is a big challenge for me. What I need to do now is study twice as much as they do. My father's wish now isn't only his anymore. I have stopped liking English and started to love it. I also love my class now. My classmates are very nice. They weren't serious students as I expected. They know how to balance the time between studying and playing. Moreover, I have found my close friends here. At this time, I feel very happy and satisfied.

This decision brings me a lot of wonderful things, doesn't it?

I'm trying to improve my writing skill, so i will appreciate all your help!

In my opinion, you write very well. I wish you good luck for your future as English teacher!
Anyway, I have some doubts with this sentence: "My father's wish now isn't only his anymore"..

I would like to describe my decision to my university - University of Pedagogy.

... I suggest this way;
My decision of choosing University of Pedagogy is one of the most important decisions I ever made.

Almost everyone may think that this will be another story about argument between children and their parents about following their dreams.

... the word "about" is getting repeated too often. You should rephrase this again to arrange a better flow of your ideas.
But you may feelwould be surprised when you finish reading my story.
Following your dream is good but it would be better if you can fulfill your parents' wish too.
