To whom it may
concern,

 

It is my great
pleasure to provide this letter of recommendation for Maria as she wishes to
pursue her further education at New York University Abu Dhabi. As Maria’s elder
brother, she has never failed to impress me in her capabilities in all principles
of life. Her determination and enthusiasm for her academics has always been prevalent
from a very young age. She has equally maintained a selfless personality at
home, often bringing great energy into the family. Regardless of the situation Maria has always had a growth mindset, and she has nurtured her
younger siblings to adopt that valuable perspective too.

 

Maria
personal strengths are as impressive as her intellectual accomplishments. Amongst my siblings, Maria is always determined to help those
around her, regardless of whether it is family or even a neighbor. She has gone
from mentoring our neighbor with an unfortunate case of autism to volunteering
at schools in Afghanistan. She is continually seeking to further her philanthropy
at the schools, and she has discussed her plans to empower the destitute at
home.

 

Maria has always been intrigued by the
influence Economics has on our lives and often discusses the theories we use to
shape solutions for current real-world problems. She often appreciates the
feedback I give her on her schoolwork, and this means she’s always learning and growing as a
learner, an impressive strength that will continue to aid her at university.

 

Maria is a driven, engaging and curious
individual that continually aims to further her understanding in all her
disciplines. She believes passionately in social progress and working for the
common good of her society. I am confident that she will continue to display
the persistence, perseverance, and optimism that she has had. I highly
recommend Maria for admission to your undergraduate program and believe she
will be a valuable asset at the university. Please do not hesitate to contact
