Thank You 

I would like to express my deep and genuine gratitude for this scholarship. Today, money matters more than ever with the rising costs due to inflation, and I am well aware of the challenges this presents. Growing up in a humble immigrant household, it was not always easy to make ends meet for my family, so this makes me even more understanding of the value this aid holds. This scholarship helps not only me but also my parents, who have always supported me and wanted to see me achieve my dreams. I will continue to do my very best and use your generosity to reach my full potential!
