    I need help from native speakers

    Hi. Could any native speaker tell me whether the following paragraph is grammatically correct and includes the answer to the question asked? Thank you in advance.

    Q: Why I would make a good employee for a work & travel job...

    A: AS A STUDENT ATTENDING UNIVERSITY, I AM AWARE OF THE FACT THAT IT TAKES CERTAIN QUALIFICATIONS TO WORK IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT ENVIRONMENT. SO, I AM SURE THAT I WILL BE ABLE TO SOLVE MOST, IF NOT ALL, OF THE PROBLEMS THAT I WILL FACE IN THE UNITED STATES ON MY OWN. BESIDES, I LIKE TO LIVE IN ORDER AND TO OBEY THE RULES. ALTHOUGH I AM A VERY OUTGOING AND TALKATIVE PERSON, I KNOW WHEN I SHOULD BE SILENT. I KNOW THAT A PERSON’S OPINIONS MIGHT BE DIFFERENT FROM MINE ON VARIOUS SUBJECTS AND I RESPECT THAT. AS A RESULT, I BELIEVE I WOULD MAKE A GOOD EMPLOYEE BECAUSE OF THE QUALIFICATIONS I HAVE LISTED ABOVE.

    You do not need a comma after "So". It might be better to start the sentence with "Therefore "

    Apart from that and the two changes I have made, it is fine grammatically.

    I think it is a little thin if you have to justify your suitability for a job involving travel.
