For the past 17 years of my life I have lived in three different countries with completely different cultures (**, **, ***). Despite the painful transitions and bitter goodbyes, I have a gained an excellent understanding of different cultures. For example, most of my friends abroad did not believe that Egypt had cars and roads like normal countries, but instead that we went to school by camels and deserts covered the country. Moreover, I had always pictured London as a group of 17th century houses and ancient cultures, until I had the opportunity to live there for three years which gave a clear understanding of the culture their and cleared the misconception that was in my mind. Therefore I think that I will be a valuable addition to an already existing wide range of cultures and backgrounds available in UD.
More than once, I was perceived as a very helpful individual and that I found pleasure in offering assistance. I was not made aware of this quality until I participated in charity events and fund raisers where our hard work was only rewarded by the personal satisfaction of helping others.I will be more than willing to offer my services to the University of Dallas, to help improve the college experience for my (hopefully) fellow peers and myself.
please tell me what you think and correct any wrong grammar
Thanks in advance
