I am writing some kind of motivational letter for my volunteer service in Colombia. Though my Spanish skills are only on a beginner's level, I try my best to explain my motivation in Spanish. Therefore I want to include in the letter my thought of:
I want to be part of something bigger than myself
My attempt would be a "word by word" translation. Something like:
Yo quiero formar parte de algo mayor que me
Not sure about using "que" or "como".
How can I say this in Spanish? Please keep in mind that I am a newbie and can't phrase "complex" sentences. Thanks for your help in advance! :)
