I would like to thank you so much for this opportunity. I very much look forward to being able to thank you in person for such a generous contribution to my education. It means a great deal to myself and my family that there are foundations like yours looking out for the futures of students like me. I am so very excited to be spending my next four years at a place like Hope where everyone is a family and community is so important. I chose Hope because it reminded me so much of my home in Romeo. I have attached a photo from my first official visit to Hope where I immediately knew that Hope would be my place for the next four years.
