TRANSLATED FROM LETTER (See Updates section for original letter)
Name: Yong Tiyuan
Greetings! My name is Yong Tiyuan and this year, I am 15 years old. I am from Nujiang Prefecture, Fuxiang County, Aohengdi Township. Both of my parents are farmers and including my sister, we are a family of four. Because my mother is illiterate, she does not understand the concept of success as it stands in today's society. This is no fault of her own; the fact that she and my father can support us in our studies is commendable. After all, they are farmers. Every bit of money they earned required their blood, sweat and tears. So I must work hard and succeed.
My family's lifestyle is not extravagant; rather, because school fees are expensive, my family cannot live lavishly.
But I strongly believe that intellect can change my destiny so I must study hard. Even though I will encounter various challenges on this journey (i.e. not enough money), your help and my hard work will surely ensure my success.
