I will never forget the moment I received an email saying that I had been granted the opportunity to attend the YYGS program on a Travel Scholarship. Before that moment, my mom was about to call off all my preparations due to financial constraints.

When I arrived on the Yale campus I was overwhelmed by the majestic landscape, since this was my first time of traveling abroad. I met a lot of people from different backgrounds which has enriched my perspective of the world. My favorite seminar was entitled, “Questions concerning technology “. I was most interested in that particular seminar because I am considering a career in the field of Information and Communication Technology. During the seminar, we discussed about the impact of technology on our world today. And ironically, we learnt that technology is a major contributor to lives which have been lost over the past century.

We also learnt that technology could still play a major role in “saving” our planet! One interesting aspect of the program was working on our Capstone projects with our peers. It helped me to improve my interactive skills with others tremendously. I am currently in my senior year and will complete high school next year. I plan to write the SAT so as to get the chance to study abroad, provided I can secure a scholarship.

This great summer experience would have been a fantasy without your assistance. I am forever grateful. But I believe you will reap the good works you have sown. Thank you.
