To whom it may concern

I'm enlisting for the federal bureau investigation at Chicago,Illinois.

As i’m currently pursuing a master's degree in criminology. The two courses that i'm currently are Criminal Justice and Public Policy and Public and Private Security these would be the last two courses that i need to have my masters degree in criminology. These two courses show me not to violate the security in society and the background behind it. The other course shows me the consequences and lets you examine recent crimes. The position that i'm applying for requires a great leader and I think i could be your perfect candidate for it. Throughout the years I've been able to show great leadership and been able to work well with others.

Thank you for your time.

Additional Information

Im the best candidate for Florida state university because I keep on persisting on what i want and never stop striving for it. If their was any bumps on the way there I will do anything to overcome it and keep on pushing to become a better person.

As a human being you learn from bad experiences and become a better person. As one of my own personal experiences I learned so much from it. It happened when i was 8 years old playing soccer. This day was special because it was a playoff game to win a tournament. As the game kept going. The score was 2-2 we needed a goal to go all the way to the championship. All of my teammates were ready to give up and let them win. But in the contrary i was determined to win so I did everything to lift there spirits up and take the win home.

In fact from that day i kept helping people doing their very best and not quit what they started. I will persisting till my dreams and goals are in my hands. Nothing will stop me from getting it. I can be a great person in your campus . Bringing positive vibes to my other fellow peers and helping them.

In the end I Feel like i could be a great addition to your campus. No one else has the determination i have on reaching things no one else can.
