Today, I received a very exciting envelope in the mail: the follow-up report, photos and letter from Anna Marie's first semester tuition SNG! My scanner is packed due to my recent move, but I can share the report and letter...
The report states:
Brief Description of Project:
Marie received financial assitance for her continued education. She
will be using the sponsor's donation to continue her tertiary level
education to take the Bachelor of Science in Tourism per task #######
for 1st year of the first semester in college. The sponsor included
extra funds to cover unexpected expenses or for Anna Marie to purchase
something nice for herself. The sponsor would like a photo of the youth
wearing her college uniform, if possible.
Marie previously wanted to take BS Tourism, during the inquiry and
entrance examination from a public university she was able to pass and
opted to take a different course that is CS in Business Administration
major in Human Resource Development Management.
Accomplished to Date:
Marie passed the entrance examination and now enrolled in a state
university near their home. She got an 86% in the result of the entrance
examination. She took the BS in Business Administration major in Human
Resource Development Management course, close to her first choice of
course degree. She also bought school supplies and school uniform. Anna
Marie is now ready for her first semester as a first year college
To Be Accomplished:
She will be attending her first class on June 10 and will provide updates to the Field Officer for her further needs in school.
That's a lot of information packed into one report, and all of it good
news! It was possible to have photos of her in her uniform--I was so
excited to receive them! I wondered about her change of choice in what
to study, but she answered that in her thank-you letter...
Wonderful day to you my dear sponsor!
am thankful for the big blessing you have shared with me. I am now
taking up Bachelor of Science in Business Administration major in Human
Resource Development Management. It's my second choice course degree and
aside from becoming a Flight Stewardess or Attendant I also would like
to become a successful business woman. That is why I took my second
choice course because I also want to learn about business when I have my
own to help my family. Without your help, I wouldn't be able to pursue
my dreams. I promise to give my best in my studies so you'll be happy
and proud of me.
A million thanks for your kindness and generosity. May our almighty God shower more your blessings. Take care always.
Anna Marie has such great dreams--I feel so lucky to have the opportunity to help this bright young woman reach for the stars!
I have a fundraiser on FirstGiving
for Anna Marie's second semester (it was Love-Bombed at the end of May
and is currently 32% complete!). With my recent demotion, there's no way
I can swing the full amount myself, so I am especially grateful to
everyone who has contributed so far--and to everyone who will contribute
in the coming weeks! I am determined to keep Anna Marie in college, no
matter what it takes.
