Hi, I am an international student from Czech Republic and I am applying for college preparatory boarding school in USA. This is my short essay (100-200 words), topic is "Tell us about yourself and why you would like to become a part of our school family."

Secondly, I realised the importance of a family. Lastly, living in a place full of strangers gave me a chance to recognise my bad sides. They all are the pieces that make me who I am now.

If you were left without anyone you know well in a country you don't know much yet, you would usually feel lonely and homesick.

Through all this, I was able to learn the importance of a friend, and I came to value friends more.
