Chances of getting into Boarding school
Hello, Ladys and Gentlemen!
I am from Africa but I have been living in Europe for almost fifteen years. Currently I am in my last days of 8th grade.
I want to apply to several prestigious boarding schools in the United States.
I've read a lot about "hooks" here so I will explain mine fastly.
I've been in drama club for over six years.
I work as a volunteer in a home for elders.
Since I attend an economic-focused school I have had accounting,economics and home economics.
In my spare time I love doing Origami(s) and playing chess.
I love languages and I learn them in my spare time. It's Japanese, Russian,Hebrew and a little French (since my teacher is a little disappointing).
The downside is that I am more into academics than into sports. I've tried lots of sports, stayed a few years and moved on.
I haven't taken any of the standardized tests yet but I will in autumn.
I will rely on FA but not completely.
I want to apologize for all the potential mistakes I made in the text.
Do you think I have a chance?
