Please could you help me edit the following sentence. Is there any better way I can put it without using the highlighted part? :

1. Having being born in such a diverse country as India, I was surrounded by people from myriad cultures and backgrounds. Henceforth, I have grown to respect and value the multiplicity of human race. I have always been curious to interact with different kinds of people.

2. Having been born and brought-up in India, a fast developing nation, I have also come to realize that it is very important to get avant garde education

SokaPlease could you help me edit the following sentences. Is there any better way I can put it without using the highlighted parts?
You have two sentences! You can omit the highlighted parts or rephrase them, but that would not necessarily make them any better.
Soka1. Having being been born in such a diverse country as India, I was surrounded by people from myriad cultures and backgrounds. Henceforth Since then, I have grown to respect and value the multiplicity of human race. I have always been curious to interact with different kinds of people.
Because I was born in such a diverse country as India, I was ...

Henceforth refers to the future: From now on.

I would say "eager to interact" instead of "curious to interact".
Or possibly, "I have always enjoyed interacting with ..."
Soka2. Having been born and brought-up brought up in India, a fast developing nation, I have also come to realize that it is very important to get an avant garde education
Because I was born and brought up in India, ...

I would not use "avant garde" to describe eduation. It's normally used to describe styles of art. I would probably say "to get the best education possible".
_______

In both sentences, a because clause can substitute for what you have, but I don't think it improves anything. I think your original "having been born" is better. I don't know why you want to change or omit those parts.

Thank you CJ,
Actually my teacher asked me to make the sentence a little 'less flowery'. She asked me to omit 'Having been born'.

Is this better:

I was born in India, one of the most diverse countries. Hence, I was surrounded by people from myriad cultures and backgrounds, and I have grown to respect and value the multiplicity of human race. I have always enjoyed interacting with different kinds of people.
Because I was born and brought up in this fast developing nation I have also come to realize that it is very important to get value education.

Interesting. I didn't see anything particularly flowery about those sentences. But in any case, your revised sentences are good.
SokaI was born in India, one of the most diverse countries. Hence, I was surrounded by people from myriad cultures and backgrounds, and I have grown to respect and value the multiplicity of human race. I have always enjoyed interacting with different kinds of people.
Because I was born and brought up in this fast developing nation I have also come to realize that it is very important to get value education. The only problems I see are these:

"one of the most diverse countries" seems incomplete. I would add "in the world".

"to get value education" uses "value" incorrectly. Again, I still prefer "to get the best education possible" or, more simply, "to get a good education", or possibly, "to get an excellent education".

Add a comma after the because clause: "... developing nation, I have ..."
It's easier to read with the comma.

Thank you once again,
CalifJim Again, I still prefer "to get the best education possible" or, more simply, "to get a good education", or possibly, "to get an excellent education".
Actually the sentence succeeding it is : But even more, I wish to be able to apply what I learn at any Institution and make a significant contribution to the society.

Somehow I'm not comfortable with best/good/excellent education.
Any other suggestions? Emotion: thinking
SokaBut even more, I wish to be able to apply what I learn at any Institution and make a significant contribution to the society.
"institution" doesn't take a capital letter. [ Edit ] And no "the" before "society". Otherwise, the sentence is fine.
SokaSomehow I'm not comfortable with best/good/excellent education.
Any other suggestions?Nothing that comes to mind just now. Sorry!

Maybe another member of the forum will have a suggestion.

Emotion: mmmI need to convey that I look forward to a liberal arts education.I need a word for it !
But even more, I wish to be able to apply what I learn at any institution and make a significant contribution to the society.

Just to confirm: Is 'the' needed?

Many thanks.
Thanks for catching that, YL!

No, there should not be a "the" there!

I will go back and edit that response.
