A two-week trip across the Mediterranean Sea by cargo to the United Kingdom and a 10 hour flight by plane to the Middle East was well worth the wait to get a letter from my hard-working and tenacious shining light, Everlyn.
So far I’m very impressed with how well she has done in such a short period of time. In my letter response to her, I talked about my academic career and challenges I faced growing up in my community. I share with her some things about the Unites States and Chicago, the wonderful city I call home. I included some pictures of my travels and offered some words of encouragement. I took a second glance at the letter and realized that she actually wrote it on my birthday,WHAT A GIFT, sheer coincidence it seems but very touching :)!
