    The most important thing is to be able to condense your goal into a crystal clear sentence. What is your goal?

    Because accounting field gives me oppurtunities to work at offices. I dont deny physical jobs, but accounting is going to settle me in only one seat. I work with numbers, documents, computers and businessmen. This major also offers a stardard working time, 8 hours a day, makes my mind up and adapt a professional working system.


    I would like to achieve scholarship not for school fee, but for my ability. I want to know how much I can do, how deep my knowledge is. Scholarship is always an academic encouragement afforcing my study mind.

    Unlike movie stars, I am not interested in wining widespread fame at Hollywood. However. I want to be popular in school. I want to be a cell of my school, an active volunteer, and an excellent student.

    I pursue all of goal in order to affirm my ability.

    OK Let's break this down:
    1 Accounting gives me the opportunity to work in an office
    Many professions work in offices, so this does not seem a very strong factor to me. You should start with the strongest factor. How about something like this:
    As someone who has always been interested in mathematics, accountancy appeals to me as it would allow me to use my skills in a practical way, doing one of the most important jobs in a company.

    2 physical jobs
    This isn't relevant- concentrate purely on what you have to give and what you want to learn.

    3 This major also offers a stardard working time, 8 hours a day
    This actually sounds a bit negative, as if you are that committed. You shoudl write instead about the positive things- working in a team in an office, using many different skills, etc
