    Post Can anyone help me paraphrase this sentence? Or to even correct this sentence.

    Here is the sentence :
    I am hard working, imaginitive and sportive; therefore, I am applying for this job.

    The sentence itself is probably wrong so please help me
    I need to write this sentence once more in the conclusion of my essay.
    Please, anyone help me paraphrase it!

    Welcome to the forum Yumi Jean.
    What do you mean by sportive? Are you referring to an interest you have in sports or to playfulness? Perhaps you mean supportive, which is another matter altogether, and seems to fit better in the sentence. Unfortunately you have provided no meaningful context for this sentence and it is, therefore, difficult to comment. Is this the concluding sentence of an essay or part of a cover letter for a resumé? Context is vital.

    One of many possibilities: I consider myself to be hard working, imaginative and a team player, and I am deeply interested in this job.
