    Question Please help - two sentences

    Please comment on the structure of the two sentences in the following paragraph:


    From building XXXXX in high school, to learning YYYYY during my college years, to studying XXXX in ZZZZZZ as a graduate student my tryst with XXXXXX has been extremely interesting over the years. And it is because of my desire to continue this fascinating learning experience that I am applying for a ZZZZZ position.



    Is the use of "to" and "because ---- that " in the way I have done okay? Please give your suggestions and help me out.



    Thanks.

    Your use of "to, because...that" is okay, but I wouldn't use the word tryst in any professional letter.

    yogahelps2,
    thanks for the reply.
    Actually, the paragraph is the beginning of my SoP for admission to a PhD program. Is the use of "tryst" not advisable here too (say as against an official letter ) ?
