To Whom It May Concern:
I knew Christian both as a student in my Economics Higher Level class and through his work with the Model United Nations organization, for which I was a supervising teacher. Christian was a dedicated student and strong leader, with many personal traits to recommend him.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Program is a rigorous program that requires students to complete coursework at a very high level. Although Christian struggled at times to maintain high marks in this environment, he approached his schoolwork with dedication, responsibility and intellectual curiosity. He often sat in the front row during class, asking questions and participating actively in class discussions. When he struggled with topics, he did not hesitate to ask for help, but showed through his persistence that he was committed to learning the material to the best of his ability. His hard work paid off in the end when he received a 5 for his final exam in Economics, showing a good command of the course material.
Christian has also proven to be a promising leader through his position as Vice Conference Manager of the MUNNY 2013 Conference. His involvement with this group, and participation in many Model United Nations (MUN) conferences throughout his time at gymnasium, reflects his interest in issues of international importance and desire to learn from different perspectives and backgrounds. One of Christians strengths that shone through in this role is his charisma and ability to connect with others. Christian has strong people skills and a self-confidence that causes other students to look to him as a leader. He is good at motivating and mobilizing others, able to delegate and take responsibility for those under his leadership. At the same time, he is a strong team player and cooperated well with the other members of the Executive Team to put together a successful conference.
Finally, Christian is a kind individual and has an easy-going nature and affability that made him a valued member of the school community. He was well liked by both teachers and students. I believe that these personal traits, together with his persistence, intellectual curiosity, and strong leadership potential, make him a promising student. I therefore warmly recommend Christian Roesholm for a place at your university.
