Hi,
I have difficulties writing my project experiences. Either I really write in detail what my activities were in the respective project. Then I exceed the maximum number of characters allowed. Or I short the whole one, but then of course, a lot of content is lost. I would be very happy if you could look at my text once and give me a feedback. I would really like to get the admission to the exam. So here's the text:
