Dear Christine,

I really enjoyed when I was a student at your language school. When I saw you the first time, I felt scared because you didn’t smile a lot, but I believed you were kind when I heard you say these words: “Birthdays. On this day, your mom worked hard for you. Celebrating is ok, but you have to appreciate your mom.” I never forgot these words and I learned to appreciate the people who support me all the time. Now I’m working at a company that I really feel support is important. You changed me a lot and I will always do my best. Thank you. Take care.
