In connection with my application for long stay student visa, I am enclosing the following statement concerning my life, profession activities, and future plans.

My name is Jazzlynn Danker. I graduated from , Malaysia in 1998, majoring in .

After completion of my diploma in Business Studies, I joined a German-Swiss company (ABC Sdn Bhd) as a Secretary to General Manager where my work mainly involves interacting with our European counterparts for any correspondence and create an opportunity for me to communicate with people around .

In year 2005 (till now), I was offered in an American company, XYZ Sdn Bhd as a Senior Sales Administrator. My work involves organizing meetings and events, sales reports and other administrative correspondence, which also gave me the opportunity to work and interact with various kinds of people in different levels. This is very gratifying experience for me, which I feel will stand me in good stead in the future.

Under the influence of my close friend in my 1st company (ABC Sdn Bhd) who is French in , I subsequently developed an interest in French language and their culture. It was also my first company that formed as the motivation behind my interest in French. I have been studied basic French on my own (books and CD). Furthermore, I have just visited Europe (France, Germany& ) this May’07. It has created a stronger interest in me to experience and learn about French and their culture. Having always enjoyed interacting with people, I decided to do french in . Why? Because I think that is the fastest way to learn and experience their language/culture when you are at their country.

By doing French, it will increase my level of communication skills, as I planned to work in the hospitality industry or translator because it allows me to interact with people from all around the world and also mainly because I enjoyed communicating with people with different cultures. In the future, I think I would enjoy a career involving languages and would like to be able to visit different countries whilst working.

To conclude, I am a highly enthusiastic and innovated person who works well alone or as part of a team. I have an excellent range of interpersonal skills, including prioritization of work, managing my time effectively, flexible and able to adapt to all situation with ease.

You have used the terms "interact" and "communicating/communication skills" too often. Try and find alternatives.

I am also puzzled as to why the French Embassy want this in English!

This has been a very gratifying experience for me, which I feel will stand me in good stead in the future.

The first company that I worked for was German-French owned and with the help and influence of my colleagues, I subsequently developed an interest in the French language. Furthermore, I also find the French culture very different from my own and with that, my interest and curiosity sparked to further understand and experience the language and lifestyle. I have taken the initiative to learn basic French through books and CDs, however, it is not sufficient for me to master the language due to lack of practice. Earlier this year in May, I visited Europe (France, Germany& ) to explore the European culture and I am most fascinated. The visit has created a stronger interest in me to master French and being a person who enjoys interacting with people, I am determined to learn the language amongst the French natives. What better why to learn than to experience it first hand?

By doing French, it will increase my level of communication skills, as I plan to work in the hospitality industry or a translator. In the future, I think I would enjoy a career involving languages and would like to be able to visit different countries whilst working.

To conclude, I am a highly enthusiastic and motivated person who works well alone or as part of a team. I have an excellent range of interpersonal skills, including prioritization of work, managing my time effectively, flexible and able to adapt to all situations with ease.

p/s: I wrote this letter in english as i do not know how to write it in French.

Thank you very much.

Excuse me~I really really need help on my letter of motivation, so I googled this page but I was wondering this could be work, anyway here is my letter, could you please make any improvements on it? thanks for your help.

Respected Sir/Madam,

My name is XXXX,a senior student majoring International Trade at China Jiliang University, and I appreciate this opportunity to provide further information in support of my application for the International Master's in XXXX at XXXX University for one-year program 2012-2013

The curriculum that I studied during past three years were XXXXXXXXXX

Actually, my goal is to become a diplomatic business economist. When I was a little girl my father told me that ‘Work for it, and you can be anything you want’. I was still motivated and inspired by the words once he said to me. In my university life I won the First Prize Scholarship, the Honor of Excellent Student and Extracurricular Scholarship with GPA reached XXX, grade in top quartile of all under graduating students at the faculty. Also I have obtained another degree, Bachelor of law, at China Jiliang University.

Aside from academic work, Varieties extracurricular activities always appeals me so much as well as given me an advantage in terms of coping with the challenges.(i.e., Students Union, business negotiation competition, badminton games etc.)and I had a working experience as an teaching assistant in Hang Zhou New oriental School. All of these actual experience in my university life contributes my enthusiasm and ability to benefit form the opportunities and challenges provided. By the meantime, these experience helped me develop leadership and teamwork skills, especially in terms of dealing and communicating with people.

In my college career, what I have learned is not only introduced me to new economic concepts and theories but broadened my perspective and gave me insights into the depth of Economic world. Due to the comprehensiveness of China's 'reform and open' policies economics plays an increasingly important role in the development of its global position. Moreover economic phenomena are complicated and changeable, which include many uncertain factors. During these years of study, I always made great effort to look into economy problems more comprehensively and try hard to think about them from different aspects. Gradually, I become to focus my interests on the development of economics and I want to apply what I have learnt and what I interested in aid the development of the Chinese economy.

Although I have enriched my basic knowledge including a great deal of mathematics and statistics which provided me strong foundation for future professional career. when it comes to XXXXX problems seems still confusing to me. I am fully ware of only too well that what I have leaned as an undergraduate is far from enough. In particular, I must deepen my knowledge of real estate development and international business.

I have always dreamed about studding in Netherlands, a country with a long history of business development and is still paying great attention to its own economy. Being one of the largest economies, the Netherlands can certainly teach me a lot about the core spirit and the most fresh, useful techniques of business, thus enabling me to cope properly with most of the situations I may encounter in the future. I have carefully read the prospectus of Master program in XXXX, your university is more than perfect to help my further career with the excellent teaching facilities and staff.

For all these reasons, I strongly aspire to acquire a chance to study in XXXX University from where I could devote all my wisdom an enthusiasm to fulfill the dream of my life.

Thank you for your consideration.
