“I would like to display my utmost gratitude for all the generosity and consideration. My dream is to pursue a career in ophthalmology. My work ethic is covered by my unconditional passion; however, the expenses required for college and medical school are very daunting. Through your support and trust in my abilities, you are dramatically helping my dream come true. Thank you.”
