Hi there! I am applying for a four year scholarship to Berea College in Kentucky. The essay requirements are: 1. An overview of your educational and life experience; 2. What you plan to do after completing your education; 3. Why you wish to return (or not return) to your home country; 4. Description of ways you have positively impacted your community; I am going to write the essay briefly to you to get general information about me which helps you to write essay. My name is Zhanat Kalmakov, I was born in Kyrgyzstan.(09/10/2000) I grew up in a beautiful country. I studied in a village named Taldy Suu. After graduating 9th grade(General Secondary Education in 2016) I applied for two years (associate degree ) college in Bishkek (capital of Kyrgyz Republic and Kyrgyzstan are same country). The speciality was “Translation Studies”. While I was studying at college in the second year of my education, I won a fully funded scholarship for an academic year in China. I was one of the best students in my college. I’ve been class monitor in my college and in China as well. In 2017 I went to China. The University which cooperates with my college is Shandong University of Technology. It was incredible educational and life experience. Living in a country with diverse culture is awesome. In addition, by the end of exchange program in China I also won fully funded four year scholarship with monthly payments 2500 Chinese Yuan. I had to refuse of that scholarship because I had to return to Kyrgyzstan to complete my associate degree. I’ve always been an activist and been participating many kind of events. I like volunteering, it gives me a lot of experiences. After coming back from China in 2018. I graduated from college, I was awarded the qualification of Kyrgyz-Chinese Translator(2019). There is a Government Scholarship in China provided by Confucius Institute. In 2019 I also won fully funded four year scholarship with monthly payments 2500 Chinese Yuan. Unfortunately, I had to refuse again because I really wanted to go to the USA because of the high education. After getting my associate degree, I decided to apply for American colleges. At that time my English was poor, and I applied for ESL classes. I am currently living in Seattle attending Seattle Central College. I’m still taking ESL classes. My aunt is my sponsor, and she has been paying my tuition. My dream is to become a professional specialist in Computer and Information Science. I am fluent in Chinese, Russian, Kyrgyz, learning Enlgish (almost fluent). Regarding the requirements of the essay: 1. I think the information I gave you helps to complete the first. 2. After completing my education I’m going to start my career and also help my community in IT sphere. 3. I would like to stay for a particular time to use my knowledge to become a professional in Computer and Information Science. After that I will definitely return to my home country. 4. I think you can provide your ideas because my English is not very good to write about that.
