Certificate Personal Statement Length; How many pages?

Hi friends !!!
I am in the process of writing my personal statement. I was wondering how long should it be? I have used simple language in my PS. Should I try to get some help to use more sophisticated language?

Default PS statement

I believe one to one & half page PS is enough to express your interest in a specific program , you can also use some strong words in your statement.
I would recommend if you google PS writing in I.M. for example and see how students write their statements.
