    Hello Ofelia,
    If this is a final exam, then they are examining you, not us. Your examiners can already assume that someone on the 'net can write a good essay. What they want to know is whether you can.
    Your essay should pass. You've made a few errors in the use of articles ("the, a"). It would look better left-aligned, and you should change the hyphens into dashes to be consistent.
    Good Luck

    I think it sounds more authentic in Russian-English. They want to know how you express yourself. You've managed to do this well enough. If you submit an essay in perfect English, but can't reproduce that later, they'll know the essay wasn't entirely yours. That could go against you.
    Still, someone else can correct it if they like.

    I agree that your essay is good. The few mistakes that are underlined in red through the program, you can look up in your dictionary and correct. I notice that in the paragraph that is quoted here, you are not capitalizing "I". Check that you have done so in your essay.

    There are many native speakers whose written English is not nearly as good as yours.
