Default Personal Essay

So I'm applying to Sejong Language Institute (no point going on website, all in Korean), and I have to handwrite a personal essay.

I'm not 100% sure on what to do for my personal essay.

The reason I chose Korean and Korea is because I want to teach English there after I get a degree and I want to teach Korean when I get back to the UK, but I am in love with the language AND the culture more than I am the music.

But I'm struggling SO hard on my personal essay and writing about myself.

Anyone have any tips D:

Be honest. Honesty is about the only bit of advice I can offer.

You want them to know why you want to be there, why the program is a good fit for you, and what you plan to do afterwards.

Add a hook to the beginning (anything that can catch a reader's eye), and summarize at the end.

Tell them something/ some things about yourself that will set you apart from applicants; I'm sure they'll get hundreds of others, and they'll just blur into one another after a while. For example, if you have ever visited another country for an extended period of time and learned some of its culture, you can mention that. As it has already been mentioned, be honest, though that doesn't mean you have to be modest about it.
