Dear Committee of Admissions, 

It is with great confidence that I recommend Jessica Elihu to work at the Heritage Foundation. As an experienced educator, I have had my fair share of students with different aspirations and attitudes towards learning and succeeding. Jessica, by far stands out to be one of the brightest, diligent, and most exceptional, who I have had the opportunity to teach and work very closely with. Always, in her work, Jessica is consistent, dedicated and passionate; enthusiastic, cheerful, and a pleasure to work with. She has incredible creative energies and a refreshing idealism tempered only enough to accomplish what needs to be done. I highly recommend her for any position of work, leadership, education, or any other capacity in which she can spread her excitement and share her talents with others.

Perhaps the strongest characteristic of Jessica's is her work ethic. I cannot recall another student who worked as hard as Jessica. She has shown tremendous leadership, whether it be assisting her classmates, or setting the tone for class discussions. Jessica is an outstanding student, who always participates in discussions and always has something intelligent and relevant to say, and this did not happen in my class alone.

An independent and motivated high achiever, Jessica has the qualifications that empower her to succeed. With great devotion, she has undertaken a complex project. After having her research under my wing on Latin American elite lore and their subjugation of women, I have realized a great deal about Jessica. She is wealthy in her spirit, generous with kindness and inspired by her dream of accomplishment. As she did in depth research aside from a lengthy compilation of her analyses, she not only delved into a plethora of information, but also demonstrated a criticality in her thinking. Her analytical abilities demonstrate her ability to draw conclusions readily. She exercises good judgment and adept deductions in her intellectual capacity. Aside from her in depth comprehension of material, her writing exhibits another dimension which is impeccable. I am certain she will soar to levels beyond our ordinary expectations if given the opportunity. 

Jessica is a motivated young woman of numerous talents and considerable self-discipline. She is likeable, enthusiastic, trusting and trustworthy. Jessica exhibits an awareness and complex understanding of the "big picture." Since your program is seeking superior and ambitious candidates, I recommend Jessica to your institution with absolute confidence as being an excellent choice, and I hope that you will carefully consider her application.
