"ከ ሰላምታ ጋር "

አማኑኤል

First of all I would like to say that I am much honoured to get the Chance to be admitted into this fine school ,African leadership academy. My name  is Amanuel Erkyihun Bekalu and I am eleventh grader  Currently enrolled at D/Markos preparatory school , Amhara region around D/Markos.

I had a scholarship contest before some months in Addis Ababa ,German embassy and I won and get accepted for this scholarship opportunity at Johannesburg in a place called honeydew. During the competition, we were about 15-20 finalists from the whole applicants pool in Ethiopia and among them only four  of us  have been admitted to enrol in AlA .
It is a world class pan African boarding school commonly know as African leadership academy (ALA).

 African Leadership Academy (ALA) seeks to enrol the most outstanding young leaders from across Africa and around the world – ALA is not only looking for young people who are smart and excel in the academic environment, They are looking for young people with the potential to lead and impact the world around them through their courage, initiative and innovation.

As you may aware , The total fees without scholarship to enrol at ALA is $61,200 . As a Low income Ethiopian student , I simply don't feel that I can afford it . They have a principle saying that every student should contribute something for their education at ALA. But I still can't do that. My financial assistance award over two year is really significant and good , $60,900 over two years. So My responsibility will be only $600 besides to the costs for the visa application process.

But, as I mentioned before it remains tough for me to afford and enrol . So , In short I would like to let you know that I need to find someone who is willing to help me. if you are or know someone who is wiling help me please nominate them to reach out me . 

 I am gonna decline the scholarship offer because I could not afford. My Father  is on an extremely tight budget and unfortunately cannot afford to pay for my schooling. Frankly speaking ,Asking people for money is hard. I get weird sometimes just asking very  distant relatives to chip in for my School required materials .But  have no choice other than asking people fro help. He is a single parent, raising 4 daughters and My grand father and mother on his own.

Thank you so much  for reading my email and giving me your precious time.


Best regards, 
Amanuel,
