So unfortunately I don't know how to grade these types of essays, but let me rewrite it for you in a way that would be considered more gramatically correct.
I would also recommend that you search the boards and read some well crafted AWA essays. Although they are different, they might help you formulate a stronger essay. These essays will show you a little bit more about what is expected from you in achademic writing. Also, read this post on how to ge 6 AWA.

Everyone in the world has friends. Some of these friends are similar to ourselves and others are different. Regardless of these differences, there are many advantages to having both types of friends.
Some people choose friends who are different from themselves while others choose friends who are similar to themselves. Given a choice, I would prefer friends who are similar to myself because they are more likely to understand me, how I act, and how I view life. We would also share many of the same emotions. For example, my friend Rahul and I have no problem agreeing on a place to eat whenever we go out because we both enjoy the same types of foods and enjoy each other’s company. We also have many of the same opinions on things such as fashion, movies, bikes, etc. Friends who are similar make us feel comfortable. For instance, Aesop's fable - "Birds of same feather flock together" is a story about how similar people are more likely to enjoy each other’s company. This is an excellent example of how similar people tend to be more likely to get along.
Additionally, choosing friends different from myself also has many advantages. Friends with differing views from myself will allow me to see things differently. They will have different hobbies which I could learn from them. People always say opposites attract because each person has something that will compliment the other. Friends with different interests and opinions will question us and introduce us to new things in life. For example, my friend Sunjay and I have been friends for almost five years now. Despite our differences, we have never had a single fight. I attribute this to the fact that our differences actually make us better people, and we learn a lot from each other. Another friend of mine, Varsha, introduced me to eating sushi and river-rafting, something I would have never tried if it wasn't for her.
Weighing these two options, I would prefer the latter option, but what is more important is how we value our friendships and how we enjoy ourselves when we are with our friends.
