Thank you for suggesting that I shorten my infy experience. I will list my language experience and potential as a separate paragraph and replace infy experience with the below paragraph on the college marked towards the end in green. Please let me know about your opinion and inclusions. Also please suggest any improvements the description on my involvement with my college club.
LETTER OF MOTIVATION
I am looking forward to pursue my Masters in Sustainable Energy Engineering at KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm. I want to take up specialization in Solar energy offered by your course at Dalarna University College in Borlänge.
My interest in renewable energy started with a competition for designing the logo for my college's Renewable Energy Club (REC) during the first year of my studies. I learnt the distinction between carbon fuels and clean energy sources when I gathered information for the design. My logo was short listed in the final three and was chosen to be the welcome image for the inaugural REC conference. In the same year, I won a model exhibition contest conducted by the club for a working model of 'geothermal energy generation and utilization'. I became actively involved in the club over the four years of my bachelors' studies and learnt about various advances in the field of renewable energy. I won second prize for my paper presentation on 'an advanced geothermal energy system' in an inter-college technical symposium during my third year of college. As my awareness about renewable energy grew, I guided my peers and juniors in various activities of the club. I also actively participated in organizing a national-level technical symposium in my college. The information I gathered during the preparation for each event furthered my interest in the connection between social awareness and energy generation. I was able to channel my interest and knowledge in my final year project, where I designed a model prototype of 'a solar powered electric vehicle for people with special needs'. I come from India, a country where wind and solar energy is in abundant supply, yet we suffer from frequent power failure during the day on a daily basis, which affects many small scale industries in my region. I have seen wind and solar energy being utilized only in small pockets in my country due to lack of technical knowledge. I realized that renewable energy holds the promise for the future. I am convinced that industrial advances can benefit environment and society only when they are combined with sustainable practices.
In the past two years, I have been relocated from my home twice during the course of my work, including to Karnataka, a region whose local language I did not know then. I had to use all my communication ability to find accommodation, negotiate fares and arrange for transport for me and my friends. By the end of one month, I was able to pick up the local language sufficiently enough to organize a local sightseeing tour a group of employees from my company.
I regularly take part in blood donation drives and am part of the English literary club at my company. I am interested in reading and am a member of the British Council Library in Chennai. I have a deep interest in traveling and have visited several places in Asia. I am involved in ecological conservation and have taken part in 'Clean my Beach' drive and 'Oliver Ridley Turtle Walks' in Chennai. I have attended 'Chennai Heritage Walks' and have frequently organized bird watching trips to local bird sanctuaries for my peers.
I have been working in an Indian IT major, Infosys Tech. Ltd for the past two years. I was selected for the job based on my excellent English communication skills, computer skills and academic performance. I have an interest in learning new languages and I am fluent in three Indian languages, Hindi, Telugu and my mother tongue Tamil. I have also learnt French in my schooling days. I am confident that I can learn Swedish and am excited about the opportunity to learn about Swedish culture.
I am drawn to KTH's Energy Initiative, and research in Smart Grid Technology. I want to utilize research opportunities in incorporating Solar Energy in Smart Grids that can reduce electricity costs during the day. I would like to be involved in Solar Energy initiatives in KTH.
I am very impressed by Sweden government's initiatives with regard to sustainable development. Sweden has built a reputation for being environmentally conscious due to the peoples' positive attitude to organic food, clothing, sustainable urban planning and waste management, hence I wish to pursue my masters in Sweden. I hope I will secure a place in your Masters program in Sustainable Energy Engineering.
