How to write a self introduction for a American high school?

QUESTION
How to write a self introduction for a American high school?
I am applying for an American high school and i want to know how to write a convincing essay about why they should accept me can you get some tips on this I don’t really know what to write about and an example would be good as well.

ANSWER
First, after writing it, be sure it’s proof read (and corrected) by a “native” English speaker, if English is your second language.

The real purpose of this essay is MORE to determine your writing ability, that is, can you communicate well in English, so you will be successful taking classes in an environment where probably few students or teachers speak a second language. (i.e, yours)

You should introduce yourself, by stating where you were born, where you have gone to school, and why you want to attend a USA high school. Tell the reader something about your interests and hobbies, especially if you have any special talents like band, orchestra, sports, chess, debate, etc. The idea is to “sell yourself” as a person worth having at their school.

You may also explain where you will be living (in their city), and how you intend to support yourself. Who will be your sponsor too?

If you already have applied for a student visa, or permission to live in USA, give them that info, as it let them know that you are ready to travel.

If you have traveled to other countries, mention that too, as it will show that you are well-prepared to leave your home country, and live in a “strange” land, like home town, USA, lol.
Good luck.
