This is a recommendation from my college teacher. I wrote it under her guidance. But I am not sure whether it is suitable for this particular program cuz we composed it for Organizational Management.. Seems like it has to show more of my interest in education. This 1 is meant to show my organisational skills
Dear Euromime team:
I am writing to you on behalf of Anastassia Onufriv. She was a student in my classes of “National Literature of English Speaking Countries” for six semesters (2008-2011) of studies. Thus, I had a great chance to learn about her personality and her abilities as a student. During this period of time she has shown herself as an outstanding student.
Anastassia thinks creatively and is able to think outside the box. This is what made her distinguishing from most of the students. At the lectures and seminars she has always been active and initiative taking part in the discussions. This would show her ability to systematize, generalize and analyze phenomena providing critical estimation.
Already at the beginning of the course Anastassia has demonstrated her interest in English and American literature. As a result she made two research works under my supervision - “Symbolism of Oscar Wilde’s Fairy Tales” and “Beatniks in the XX century American Literature”. During the research Anastassia has processed many different sources and the works signify that the student can independently conduct scientific research and express her own reasoned ideas. Although in both her works she went a bit too deep into the research and it took her more time than given, eventually her works, proved to be specific having very interesting hypothesis.
Over time of our acquaintance Anastassia has shown to be persistent and purposeful. She has always known exactly what it is that she wants and would go for it. She has also manifested such leadership qualities as sincerity, honesty, ability to make quick and effective decisions, work in team as well as independently. In particular she demonstrated these qualities when actively engaging in organizing annual “Week of English Language, Literature and Culture”. In the frames of this week in February 2011 Anastassia together with other students held a performance dedicated to work of the band “Beatles”. The participants where her groupmates and the audience was about a half the college students and teaching stuff as well as some guests from outside.
Anastassia has always lived to the full cultural life of the city taking part in different volunteering projects. This way she broadened her range of interests and learned a skill to establish contacts with different people. She often invited interesting people, usually foreigners to tell her coursemates about the world.
Anastasiia due to her wide range of interests and eagerness to learn often took part in different workshops, seminars and cultural events as an extracurricular activities. After her graduation we still keep in touch. So I can tell that she is still working on raising her professional level as well as on overall development. She is interested in innovative educational methods implementing the skills and knowledge she gained when a student. Her will for self improvement, gaining new experience and reaching her own goals emphasizes that Anastassia has a strong motivation to study and to learn.
