It's my first post..so I'm sort of nervous but I'll try and write everything down.
I'm a South Korean female studying in one of the best international boarding schools in India. I learnt English since I was three, and began receiving an English education when I was in fourth grade. Now my English is more fluent than my first language, Korean, and I've won awards for my writing and the academic subject 'English' in Olympiads.
My grades are top, all A*s, with my average percentage never less than 90% and mostly above 94%, and I'm always one of the top five in my grade academically.
The principal of my school organizes a few writing competitions annually, and I've been the only one in my school(6th-12th grade) to win each and every kind - it began when I was in sixth grade- so he knows me in person and will presumably and hopefully write some good stuff about me.
I've also won a few writing awards between other schools, and my English teacher favors me above everyone else - I've always come top overall in English at the end-of-year results.
All other grades are great, and in sports I'm in the basketball team, and have also set the school record for my division in cross-country. I am division captain for my 'house', as in sports, this year. (The whole school is divided into four houses, and we have captains for each division as well as overall)
I'm also part of the orchestra, playing the flute(3 yrs), and I also play the guitar (2 yrs) and the piano(6 yrs). I did trinity drama grade 1 and grade 3 (high merit and distinction).
SSATs .. I'm not sure, haven't took them yet, but according to my practice tests the average overall is about 92%-94%.
I really need FA, because my parents' yearly income is less than $75,000 yearly and we also have my brother's education to think about.
Basically my strong point is English ..
PLEASE chance me
Will my nationality / FA affect my chances?
Might be applying for late application OR tenth grade.
Thank you in advance!
