Hello, Najma.

I am so happy to see you continuing your education. I know you will do wonderful things with your life. It is almost my birthday, and I asked my family to send money to your education fund instead of buying me a gift. I hope you get to your goal very soon.

I am a retired teacher, and I know that your education will take you very far in life. I wish you all of the very best.

Best wishes,

Kristin
