Personal Statement

I am fluent in 4 different languages: Russian, Turkish, English, and technology. I was born in Russia and spoke Russian for the first 9 years of my life. My parents speak both Russian and Turkish, so I speak Turkish as well. When I lived in Russia I went to a Russian school and came home and talked in Turkish. It was pretty easy to learn two languages at the same time. When I was 9 I came to America . I started learning English on my first day in America. Along with learning English, I started learning how to communicate with my computer. As a matter a fact, I can currently type 60 words in a minute. I am really friendly with technology, so if that is something that scares you, I can help! My skills include being fluent in Microsoft Word, Microsoft Power point, Microsoft Publisher, and ActivInspire. I am really good with finding sources and citing them correctly.

I love taking pictures, and I believe I have a good eye. I started taking pictures when I was 10 years old. My neighbor gave me a camera. It was pretty old but I enjoyed taking pictures. As I started growing up taking pictures became part of my life. As I grew up I wanted a professional camera. Thanks to my mom I now have what I want.

I enjoy working with little kids. When I was in 4th grade they always sent me to a kindergarten class to watch over the kids. I read them books, I helped them color, I helped them with math , and I read a lot of books ( Mystery, Biography).

If you are looking for these kinds of things in an employee, I think I will be the right one.

Work Experience Journal

12/21/12 To prepare for my work experience I have been exploring and researching good models of resumes and effective personal statements. I worked to develop and edit my personal statement.
