Hey!! Can someone help me edit my personal statement for a study abroad program? I don't like how it flows and I really need someone to help me with that. Thank you!

Personal Statement In a clear, thoughtful, and carefully prepared one page essay (1 page, double or 1.5 spacing), describe your academic, career, and personal goals, and how your participation in this program will help you achieve those goals. Explain how you plan to take advantage of the cultural and educational resources available through this program. Describe the kind of internship assignment you would like, emphasizing the type of work rather than a specific organization. Growing up, I have always had a passion for expanding my understanding of various cultures and meeting people from different backgrounds. As I matured, I hope to make a difference for people around the world with this passion by working in an international organization that focuses on human rights and development. And the Brussels Internship program will be a key step for me to achieve this goal. Through this program, I will not only gain more knowledge about the European Union, but also have a chance to develop work experience at a global organization, paving my way to my future career goals. By going on field trips to different international organizations, I will be able to experience something outside of the classroom and have a better understand of how these organizations function. By experiencing a different culture, I can learn something that I can’t grasp from the book. Having studied in the United States as an international student for almost 3 years, I am amazed at how cultures can differ and have learnt to look at each culture critically and see the strength and weaknesses of them. Being in Belgium will help me to strengthen this ability. As a self-motived and passionate individual, I will work hard, absorb any knowledge that is valuable, and record any intriguing things that I see. What I want to gain from this program is not just knowledge or an experience that I can put on my resume, but also a deep understanding of the culture. The other aspect of the internship –networking with people from all over the world- also appeals to me and will enable me to increase my culture intelligence. For the internship assignment, I would like positions that can enhance my communication and managing skills. I enjoy face-to-face interaction with different people as well as managing and organizing. I also have an interest in planning and doing research.

I believe that being in a different culture and working with people from different backgrounds is a valuable opportunity that cannot be replaced by the any excellent lecture. Only when we are in a culture can we truly starting to get to know it, for we can write our own descriptions and develop our own judgment of culture instead of reading them from our textbooks. If I can have a chance to be in this program, I will take advantage of all the resources I have and spend the 8 weeks to the fullest.
