Dear Ella Lam,
Though we have not met and we live in different place, I can feel you love and concern for me. Thanks for your concern.
Previously, I feel that I am very small in the universe. Apart from my family and friend, no one else will notice me. However, when you appear, you changed my perception. You have caused me to experience the presence of warmth. Fate brought us together and I am very fortunate to be sponsored by you. Your help not only let me pursue my studies without worries, you have also let me know that there is one more person that cares for me. I am deeply appreciative of that.
After I started High School, I felt lost. When I faced with difficulties, I thought of giving up. However, when I think of your desire to see me finish my high school, I dared not give up. I will face it with courage and overcome it. I was not able to adapt when I started High School. There were a lot of lessons and homework, and I felt that I was not able to cope. However, I have finally adjusted to High School life. Please do not worry about me. I will study hard and I hope that I will not disappoint you. The school environment is good and my classmates are also quite easy to get along. I hope that you can come and visit my school.
Thanks for your love and concern. Thanks for letting me know that there are many good people in this world. I hope that in the future, I can be like you, helping others. In the beginning we do not know each other but now we are linked togther. You will forever be someone that I am grateful to and always think about. Thank you, Ellam Lam.
