Hi beloved teachers,

I).Tomorrow I have to present myself in front of (the students and the teacher of) my class. Although, I’ve prepared this paragraph, I am not sure if this will be enough and appropriate.
Let’s say I am standing in front of my class mates and the teacher.

Respected teacher(s) and all my class-mates present here, a very good morning to all of you.
Today, I am going to introduce myself to you. (or is it better to say ‘Today I am going to present myself in the class’ or ‘Today I am going to speak a few lines about me in the class’?)

As you may already know, my name is Alice. I am basically/originally from xyz place, but I’ve been in ABC since (my) birth. I am 18 year(s) old. I’ve done 10+2 from CBSE board. I did it in 2011 and presently I am doing a secretarial course from the Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI) which is in (name of the place).

As far as my family background is concerned; “My family consists of six members. (or “there are six members in my family” is better, teachers?). My father, mother, two sisters one of which is elder than me, a brother and I.

II). How should I describe my weaknesses and strengths if I am asked to do so?
Here’s my attempt:
“I think everyone has some strengths and a few weakness as well.

=if I speak of my strengths, I always try to find a better and easy way to do things. This tells me that I am innovative or creative.
This quality of mine emerges when there’s a function or ceremony at my home and I have to organize (make preparations for) everything.

=I try to be as honest as I can be with my work and with the people I am associated with.

=I am optimistic. The best example of this is that I don’t do things by halves. I don’t put off till tomorrow what I can do today. For example, when I am facing difficulties with something, I don’t leave that particular thing as it is, but I keep trying / attempting to find a solution for that difficulty until I reach a solution.

=It’s not that I work hard only when I’m in class or at work (if I am working somewhere). I work hard when I’m home as well, for example, I help my mother by cooking dinner for the family, by washing clothes, by doing the dishes etc.

And since everyone has some weaknesses too, I do have some weaknesses as well. If I speak of my weaknesses, well some of my strengths can be considered as my weaknesses as well. For example, I said I try to be as honest as I can be to the people I am associated with. But that can be seen as a weakness of mine too when I am having to deal with the customers of the company. But I think my biggest weakness is that sometimes I get angry easily; however, I have been trying to overcome it by doing meditation and yoga exercises and I think I’ve succeeded in doing so to a great extent.

= I am not always good when I am working in a group; however, individually I definitely give my best to the work I am doing to make it look different from others or better than others.

Thank you. I'd really appreciate any input from you people!

Here are some suggestions:

Respected teacher(s) and all my class-mates present here, a very good morning to all of you.
Today, I am going to introduce myself to you. (Formal. Informal: Today I will tell you something about myself.)

As you may already know, my name is Alice. I was born in Mumbai, but I’ve been (here) in Delhi since I was less than a year old. I am 18 years old.
I have studied and prepared for my career as a (secretary). So far, I’ve completed my 10+2 from the CBSE board. I did that in 2011 and presently I am doing a secretarial course from the Institute of Company Secretaries of India (ICSI) which is in (name of the place).

I come from a large (small, average-sized) family. I have two sisters, one older and one younger than me, and a brother.

I always try to find a better and easy way to do things. When there’s a function or ceremony at my home and I have to organize (make preparations for) it, I always try to .....This tells me that I am innovative or creative.

I value honesty. I try to be as honest as I can be with my work and with the people I am associated with.

I am optimistic and industrious. The best example of this is that I don’t do things halfway. I don’t put off till tomorrow what I can do today. For example, when I am facing difficulties with something, I don’t leave that particular thing as it is, but I keep trying to find a solution until I reach a solution. (I always ask more experience people for help if I get stuck.)
t’s not that I work hard only when I’m in class or at work (if I am working somewhere). I work hard when I’m home as well, for example, I help my mother by cooking dinner for the family, by washing clothes, by doing the dishes etc.

The rest is good.
