Dear Sir or Madam,
I am a recent graduate from Edmonds-Woodway High School, attaining honors and being enlisted on the Dean’s List. It has been my desire and childhood dream to study the shifts and causes in global economic markets in order to provide African countries with a viable economic edge.
After receiving my high school diploma, I attended the College of Accountancy, completing my certificate in Foundations of Accounting. Besides my interest in accounting, I have a passion for reading extensively to broaden my learning horizons. Also, mathematics has always been among my strongholds, and this can be seen in subjects such as calculus, algebra and statistics, where I have excelled. It is to my understanding that an effective economist has to have many technical skills, including interpersonal skills.
Besides my interest in economics, I aspire to be a counselor and a motivational speaker. I see myself eventually having a leadership role as a community youth leader and future economic guru. The fruition of this can already be seen in my high school career as the leader of the speech club, where I gathered and maintained 22 students that consistently improved their skills in giving speeches.
My non-academic activities that I engage in are soccer, basketball, and swimming as a part of healthy living. I believe that a person should be well-rounded, and that even academically ambitious people should be physically fit in order to exploit their minds and bodies to their fullest extent. Mental stamina, in my experience, is directly connected to physical endurance.
Studying at the South Washington University will enable me focus on gathering relevant experience and knowledge in the field of economics, as your institution has the top educational program in the state in my desired discipline of study. After engaging with students and professors from your university, I can be confident in my decision to enroll in your institution. My research indicates that your program in economics is tailored to have a high output of job opportunities for graduating students. Given this fact, I am thoroughly encouraged to attend your program and look forward to a future of quick disbursement of my acquired skills in Africa.
Thank you for your gracious time and consideration,
