Jordan D 1 Housing Close Esher Surrey KT10 789 'Achieve Your Dream' 570-572 Kingsland Road London E8 4AH 7.11.09 Dear Mr. Jones, This correspondence is in response to your 'Achieve your Dream' advert on the television. I hope that from this letter will show you that I am a worthy candidate to be chosen to achieve my dream of swimming the channel. In my opinion, for you to be able to grant me my wish, it is imperative that you find out a little about me, and my life. My name is Jordan, at fifteen years of age I swam my first mile at the age of five, and have a passion for water sports. I live in Esher and go to St. Georges College in Addlestone, Surrey. I would describe myself as an outgoing character who loves to have fun. My ideal day would be having a laugh with my friends, or joking about in the park, playing football. ...read more.


At AS level, I shall continue on with Maths, English, History, French and Economics, dropping French at A level. Then I hope to study an Economics based course at university. I shall continue this to the highest possible level, and hopefully gain an honours. After this, I hope to have a successful job in the city, in the area of finance, an environment which I hope will suit me tremendously.

After maybe ten years of working in the city (if I last that long) I shall retire to a quite life in the country. Or maybe not! I will move into the area of property, and hopefully build myself a portfolio of expensive properties, (which I shall rent out) ...read more.


On the 24th of August 1875, Captain Matthew Webb made the first observed and unassisted, successful crossing of the channel by swimming. I would like to follow in the footsteps of the 879 people who have made 1,387 crossings, and swim the channel, because it would be a great achievement. I would benefit greatly from the experience, it would also prove to me that I can succeed in life, and that I would be able to succeed in the harsh, competitive, dog-eat-dog world of business. I believe I should be chosen above any other candidates, because this would mean more to me than anything in the world. I am hard working, dedicated and will never give up, and because of this I believe it would be in your interests to pick me! However, most importantly, if I was selected by you to achieve my dream, it would prove to me that freedom is key! Yours sincerely, Jordan D ...read more.
