Below are some ideas about writing the best possible profile.

Try in some way to be different or interesting. Hobbies/interests? What do you like to do in your spare time?

For example: sports, reading, cooking, crosswords, current affairs, walking, spending time with family, pets, music etc.

Please check your grammar and spelling. It may be helpful to get a friend to check it thoroughly before submission.
