Hello Hello Hello!
First of all, thank you for clicking into this page!
Earlier this year I was enthralled knowing that I have been accepted into McMaster University (Ontario) for my Master degree. However, upon knowing my acceptance financial package, I worried that it will not be enough to offset the high tuition and other expenses as a foreign student.
Despite the seemingly high tuition, the graduate program in McMaster provides amazing research opportunities under the supervision of some of the best Asian cultural studies scholars in the field. Together with my strong academic fervour and abilities, I believe I have what it takes to transform myself into a more mature scholar and to establish my career goals in the future.
During and after the strenuous yet fulfilling undergraduate years, my professors, friends, and family have continuously inspire me to purse a graduate degree, especially doing it in a more focused and specialised setting like McMaster.
This, I believe, is a truly once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Growing up from a middle-lower class family in Hong Kong, it would be my honour to have your support towards the goal!
Once again, thank you for taking the time to learn more about me, and for considering investing in the future. I appreciate it your support more than I can say, and so does my family.
Thank you for supporting the cause! As I am juggling between full-time jobs and other responsibilities, I am more than happy to offer a little something for any kind donations over 200 HKD. I understand this is not a lot, but I really wish to give back even in the smaller symbolic way. Please provide me your delivery address and I will make sure to send you a small bundle!
Thank you once again for considering!
