To Whom it May Concern,
Ketty Summer has been my student for already three years. Back to 2014 when she attended my English literature class for the first time, I immediately understood that this kid is endowed with an immense intellect and irreproachable behavior. And throughout her studies, Ketty has always impressed me with her distinct strive for getting a new knowledge as well as her desire to always be aware of and take an active part in school life.
Ketty Summer is a very communicative, positive and easy-going person. She is always in the center of attention and has a good influence on her peers. However, Katty’s popularity at school hasn’t made her an arrogant and all-know upstart. Vice versa, Ketty is willing to help, sympathetic girl, whose interest in psychology assists her in resolving different life situations wisely and giving good pieces of advice for other people. Ketty is persistent in her studies. However, it is worth mentioning that exactly the humanities direction is Ketty's strong side. Apart from possessing good theoretical and practical skills in German and Spanish, Ketty challenges herself with mastering Italian and Chinese too, which speak volumes for her diligence and self-discipline. Repeatedly, this intelligent girl was the prize-winner of local level competitions in English literature. Ketty is an extraordinaire type of student who both catches up with the school curriculum and takes an active part in school life. She is a member of our School Parliament and is responsible for its Voluntary subsection. She is also a team member of our school’s basketball club and is the best in playing small forward.
I believe that Ketty Summer would be an excellent candidate for early admissions at your college and that your Department of Foreign Languages is in need of such a bright, initiative, multisided student as our Ketty.
