Raymond Loo
Head of Sixth Form Admissions

Sevenoaks School, Sevenoaks, Kent


Dear Mr Loo,
It is with my utmost enthusiasm to say that I have been personally researching schools that will help foster
my personal growth and allow me to blossom academically in my last years of high school, and I believe that
Sevenoaks School will do exactly this for me. As a student, artist, musician, writer, and social justice activist,
I have had much exposure to different academic, social, and personal experiences, which will make me a
choice for Sevenoaks School that you will not regret.
My activities and achievements have developed me to the person I am today - the differences between all of
them have allowed me to live truly unique days. Academically, I am a strong student, having achieved
certificates in the Honor Roll (IB marks of 5 and above) beginning from 2014 and continuing. I have also
achieved a Principals Award (IB marks of 6 and above) in 2015.
Sevenoaks curriculum is designed to create balance and instil strong cultural awareness, a determination to
be an influence for good and learning and discovery, which are qualities I believe I have demonstrated. I
enjoy expressing myself through artistic outlets, and writing is no exception. In 2014, one of my novels based
around the relationships between people and their surroundings, titled Paris, reached #1 on the Teen Fiction
charts on popular creative writing site Wattpad. I was also accepted to write for Affinity Magazine in 2016, an
online magazine with articles published by teens for teens based around social justice and politics-related
issues. I partook in a story-writing competition in 2016 held by The Reading Tree, a club at my current school
that aims to help educate underprivileged children in Myanmar, and won first place for my book Millie and
the Magic Mirror that was used as teaching material.
Visual arts is another one of my passions, and I have combined my strong belief for taking initiative on
environmental and social justice related issues with creative productions. In 2016, I co-founded the body
positivity project, #FLAWSITIVITY on Instagram, which is a project that aims to discourage body shaming
and promotes self love and self acceptance via visual and performing arts submissions by users worldwide. I
was also a finalist for the Doodle4Google competition held by Google HK in 2014, which was a competition
held by Google HK where students had the opportunity to design and recreate the logo seen on the Google
homepage. My submission was a creative interpretation on the topic, environmental issues, and I succeeded
in communicating my message as seen from my finalist status.
I thank you immensely for giving me this opportunity and taking a look at my resum in advance and will be
in touch by latest next week. I look forward to hearing from you - I am available at any time and you can
reach me through my Skype: @nataliekcy, my email: nataliecykwok@gmail.com, by phone: +852 8923 3242
or through mail to my address: 32 Parker Ave, Sunland, Windiville.
Thank you and sincerely,
Natalie Kwok
