Update (June 2017):
CONGRATULATIONS on graduating from Santa Margarita Catholic High School after three successful and challenging years. We wish you only the best for your future and are very proud of you.

Hi Paul,

I hope all is well.
First, I am writing this email to let you know that I have committed to Claremont McKenna College where I will spend my next four years. I thank you very much for all the support you provided along the way.
I could distinctly recall our few encounters. We met in Guangzhou for the first time. There, you opened me a window to America. Growing up, I heard too many stories about the world across the ocean. I thank you for unveiling this mythical land and presenting me the key to a completely different future.
