For more than three years I have a big wish , it is to live abroad as a student in USA. My name is YongkiAleksander, I am 16 years old and I am living in a small town called Lubuklinggau in Indonesia. Lubuklinggau is a city in South Sumatra, Indonesia. It has an area arround 401.50 km² and a population around 200.000. But now I am living in Palembang as my school is a boarding school. Palembang is the capital city of South Sumatera which is located in a biggest in Indonesia. Palembang is one of the oldest cities in Indonesia and has a history of being a capital of a maritime empire. Located on the Musi River banks on the east coast of southern Sumatra island, it has an area of 400.61 square kms and a poulation around 1,400,500. There are many good views in South Sumatera. One of the famous one is Ampera Bridge, a magnificent bridge which crossed over above the Musi River that connects two areas Seberang Ulu and SeberangIlir, and it is a Palembang city icon.
My favorite subjects are math, biology, and national history. Of course it is also reflected in my character. I love doing the experiment just like make an herbarium and observe the part of body plant by using microscope and I love to talk with others so it is quite easy for me to get to know new friends and to adapt in an new place. Another passion of me is travelling because I am curious of the whole world and it is so interesting for me to learn somethingnew about other cultures. Also about the United States of America, I am very enthusiastic. It is amazing and fascinating how big and varied the country is. The chance to stay one year there would be such a great possibility to improve and strengthen my knowledge about the English language because it is the most important language in the world and as I see it,everybody should have a good command of it. In my opinion, it could be the chance of my life to improve my English, become more independent and learn something about the culture. It would be the first stay for me in America.
The reason why I want to go to America as a student is because I want to gather with a new family and get to know new friends to make the harmony valuable memories. I would like to get to know the American way of life and different cultures. And it would be great self-confident and open-minded by spending an exciting year abroad.
I am open with other people and so I have many friends thought the club that I joined which is PMR (Red Cross). By becoming the member of the PMR Club I learn many thing like how to give the helping to the person that is in the critical condition . Let me tell you more about myself. My favorite hobbies are listening to any kind of musics especially classical music and reading any kind of books especially the encyclopedia book and singing. I really like to sing in every condition. I always have the time to listening to the music because it can make me relax and comfortable. Another important hobby for me is swimming, Pets. I like animal so much, actually I like to have dog in my house but then because of me and my family are moslem (Islam) so I can not take care of the dog, but I prefer to take care of any animal as long as it is still in good view base on my religion. I like to going to museums and I always hope that I can see Opera show directly . Among these activities I have some other abilities. I am very creative and I was a member of the school magazine group and in my school there is the news club, and I am the member of the news club. In that club you can improve your writing skill and how to make good articles and arrange it into well arrangement. I like fishing, when I was in my hometown in Lubuklinggau, usually in the weekend my father always invite me to fishing with him, I like this so much. But now, because of now I am living in the dormitory cause my school is such a boarding school, it made me should leaved my hobby which is fishing. I also like gardening, plant such carrot, chili, tomatoes, and Etc. moreover I also was a member in our school debating group for 1 year up until now and in choir for 2 years because singing is a passion of me, too. Unfortunately I never got the chance to play an instrument but in my future I would like to learn playing the violin and piano. In my school we are taught by the teacher how to be a great future leader and how to manage the time well, so by having this condition we ready to face the next day that will always come tomorrow.
That I am such a happy boy and can live a well-situated life it is due to my parents. I love my family. My parents are Husni(48) and Insani (42) and I also have two siblings, they are ShellaH.i and Olivia H.i. my oldest sister ( Shella ) is the college student in Tri MandiriSakti University in Bengkulu province, while my youngest sister is the student of junior Islamic school number one in lubuklinggau. I love my family they are like my vital organ and always accompany me and show me the good thing how to get the best-brighter-future.
I deeply wish getting the chance to spend one year in the USA as an exchange student because there is no doubt that there will be the possibility to gain unforgettable experiences.So I hope my letter could give you a small impression of me. Of course there are so many more things I could tell you about me and I also would like to know so many things about you and it would be so great we meet anytime and could do this.
