Help , Boston University Essay (B.U)

Hello, im an international student applying for B.U, i need some help with my essay if possible:

In no more than 250 words, please tell us why BU is a good fit for you and what specifically has led you to apply for admission?

During this summer my aunt came to visit me, we were in the beach sitting on the sand when she said ‘’X, were do you plan to study?’’ I answered: ‘’France or England, I’m looking for a good University to study Economics/Business’’.
She replied ‘’Darling, why someone intelligent like you will go to France or whatever, I promise you have a look at USA, and especially Boston where I live. Look at Boston University, it’s the best you will find.’’
Then I started doing researches and I realized that B.U was the one for me, with more than 4,000 faculty members and more than 31,000 students, Boston University is one of the biggest private universities in the USA. B.U programs are awesome with a Hugh variety, the city is just incredible (sophisticated with an urban environment), there is more than 500 student clubs in BU, and 32 sports teams. Moreover, BU programs are highly ranked: coming from a French school and having a Moroccan (African) and French (European) culture had always led me to be very curious about other cultures, and the rich diversity of students in B.U will give me the opportunity to discover and know more about new cultures and communities.
I think BU can give me the opportunity to develop myself physically and intellectually in an incredible environment with cultural resources (from museums and historical sites to storied sports teams like Red Sox who play next the campus).
