With globalization, English has become the universally spoken language. Therefore, I strongly believed that it would be to my advantage to learn as many languages as I could to achieve the status of a global citizen. For that reason, becoming fluent in three languages (Turkish, English, and Spanish), is a personal achievement which I am very proud of. I am proud of this achievement, because it did not come easy for me. I was obliged to work hard, as well as take time away from other preferred social activities. During this process I learned that the more I know about different languages, the more culturally competent I have become. As a result of these efforts I now have more of a global perspective on political, economic, as well as social situations. I am also able to communicate more effectively with people of various different countries and cultures because of my exploration of foreign language in depth. I am able to learn countries' values from the lack of certain word knowledge. I have traveled to eight countries and was exposed to different cultures. Though I did not speak each native language, I was still able to communicate with the natives of the country because of my understanding of many cultures, which starts by knowing different languages. I have put my knowledge of these three languages into good use. I have translated for people who have visited the United States and people who have visited Turkey. I translated everything from Turkish to English and vice versa. In fact, I have translated from Spanish to English to Turkish. Doing this required me to be familiar and aware of the cultural differences and customs. I have the great privilege to connect with others which improves my communication skills and helps me become more socially active. Translating also helps me develop intellectually. The more I let myself learn about languages the more I will understand about cultures and people.

'I have translated for people who have visited the United States and people who have visited Turkey. I translated everything from Turkish to English and vice versa. In fact, I have translated from Spanish to English to Turkish.' IMO, i dont think all of that is necessary.

try to focus on why being trilingual is important to you, how it makes you proud.

Nice job! You write very well in English.

Now start writing in paragraphs:
The first sentence tells the idea the paragraph is about. The second sentence explains a little more. The third sentence explains a little more and maybe ofers an example. The fourth sentence might be the last sentence in the paragraph, and it should be a comment about that main idea -- like a reflection of it.

That way, your compositions will have good structure.

You'll do very well, I think!
