    What you should focus on, and your reasons, are not for us to say. You must decide.

    Teachers on this site can help you with your English, if you show us what you have written in your application, or what you want to say. Nobody here will do it for you.

    Re: I'm going to get an college interview, need your help

    Thank you very much for your suggestion. Below this is an interview draft.

    Good morning. Let me introduce myself. I’m Pailin Sitthisomwattana. You can call me Pink. I am 18 years old. I recently graduated from Assumption Commercial College or ACC. My hobbies are swimming and taking Chinese course.

    I am interested in Chinese because China is a big country and progresses quickly about industries, so I could have a good deal if I am knowledgeable both English and Chinese.

    I took Selling major in order to learn about entrepreneurship. I liked to offer some strategies which I had learnt to my father’s business. I felt happy and enjoyed with it, therefore, I decide to study in Marketing major for my business in the future.

    That's good.

    As this is going to be an oral interview, I shall just make some suggestions, rather than going through every word of your post.

    I would leave out 'Let me introduce myself', because in this situation your listener expects you to introduce yourself.

    I would say "My friends call me Pink", because 'You can call me Pink' is too informal here.

    We say 'taking a course in Chinese' or 'studying Chinese'.

    I'm not sure of your meaning when you say 'I could have a good deal...', but I think you mean 'I could do well...'.

    You can be knowledgeable in (or about) both English and Chinese.

    Your last paragraph is less fluent. First let's look at the verb 'major'. You can use this if you study more than one subject at university, but one of them is far more important than the others. If you only want to take one subject, then you won't use 'major', but 'study'. So you can say in the interview that you want either 'to major in marketing', or 'to study marketing'.

    You chose to major in marketing (not took).

    You learnt strategies in your father's business (not had learnt, not to.

    You enjoyed it (not with it).

    Finally you would perhaps speak about your 'business in the future' as your 'career'. It's simpler.

    Good luck in your interview - try to relax, get comfortable, take some deep breaths, speak slowly and clearly, and look your listener in the eye!
