For example, if I want to say

I am grateful to have been offered a place on the program and I am very happy to accept the offer.

Is it better or not to omit the second 'I'?

I am grateful to have been offered a place on the program and am very happy to accept the offer.

Omitting the second 'I' looks a bit strange for me..

    you could also omit "am" – Archie Azares Mar 14 '18 at 1:46
  • Definitely a duplicate, and @Archie's right, either leave out both (I am) or neither. I am grateful ... and very happy to accept. – Will Crawford Mar 14 '18 at 4:28
