college essay

Please tell me how to write better for this short Paragraph on the collge application. Thank you very much.

Please choose one of the commitments that you listed above (activity, interest, or work experience) and provide a short description of its importance to you. Include why that commitment could be relevant to your student experience at college.

I was glad that I had an opportunity to be an interpreter in a county event. I feel lucky that I can speak two different languages. Living in China for a long time made me be familiar with Chinese culture. And after studying in America for one year, eventually I am able to adapt to the new culture, too. Therefore, I can bring this advantage to Penn State, since schools now should become more and more multicultural. Many students from other countries may face hardship to adjust the new environment when they first come here, so I can be assistance to them, at the same time, I can spread the idea of globalization to the Penn State community, and make it not only a university, but also a world village.


I found that mine is similar to the last post.....anyway...thank you for helping!
