Even during pandemic, I will graduate, pass the board and be an engineer this year!
No words can express how grateful I am to have you as my parents.
I have so much respect for both of you and may this letter express my sincere gratitude for raising me well, for teaching me to dream a little bigger and for working hard so that you can raise the money for my tuition.
I know it hasn’t been easy for our family to get to this point.
I have seen dad work overtime and spend less with the family.
Mom has borrowed money from her friends just so I can make it to the payment deadline.
Both of you sacrificed so much, you even forgot to spend money on yourselves.
I’ve seen mom cry and worry about the money to spend for me and my siblings’ school fees.
Dad, thank you for keeping such a calm demeanor to the whole family.
You taught me how to face difficult situations with a certain calmness that led you to make wise decisions.
Thank you for taking care of this family.
As I sit here today, writing this letter, I promise you one thing: I promise to be the engineer you always wanted me to be.
We know – you both know, I know – that we dreamt this dream of me becoming a licensed engineer one day.
I promise you that all the hard work will pay off.
Yours and mine.
Everyday, I look at both of you with pride knowing that I have parents who work hard just to support my dream.
Everyday, I strive hard to be one day closer to achieving our dream.
Mom and dad, I promise to be an engineer.
Even though there are bad days when I struggle to make it through classes, I will endure all the challenges college offers me.
You’ve always encouraged me to fight all the time.
When you know I had a bad grade in a major subject, you remind me that I should never lose hope in myself.
You always believed that I will eventually pass all my subjects.
Thanks to you, I’ve managed to pass all my subjects so far.
For days when I just had to cry it out, mom, thank you for always listening and for comforting me.
Dad, you always made sure I had enough energy to study for my exams.
I know I still have a few more years to go and anything can happen in our lives, but I promise to strive harder than ever to reach our goal.
Thank you for the love and the strength.
I love you mom and dad.
I promise, I’ll be an engineer.
