Introduction

To Whom It May Concern: I am submitting this letter in hopes of being considered for the 2010-2011 Dogwood District Scholarship. Throughout my academic career I have excelled in both my schoolwork as well as contributed my services to my community. I have maintained a high standard academic record and have been presented with many leadership opportunities, which has made me a well-rounded student at St. George's School. In school, I participate in a variety of student organizations and clubs. This year, I serve as a member of both the Grad Committee and Admissions Committee. I also act as the Vice President for the Amnesty International Club. For the past term, we worked on a letter supporting citizen rights in Egypt as well as looked into supporting a foundation working to bring basic shelter of those left homeless in Haiti. ...read more.

Beyond just creating a positive impact on our community, we were able to spread our mission statement across the province. This milestone event allowed EBF to quickly flourish from a fledgling grass root organization to a reputable youth charity in Vancouver, attracting more than fifty youth members representing eight different high schools. Serving as the President of EBF Society not only allowed me to fulfill my passion of volunteering in my community but also gave me the chance to hone my leadership and communication skills. In addition, I also served as the Secretary General for the 2011 Canadian High Schools Model United Nations. As the Secretary General, I provide my leadership skills in the organization of a three-day Model United Nations conference. ...read more.

Conclusion

Over 1,000 distinguished guests get together every year at the black tie optional event for a night of fine dining, live entertainment, and a silent auction. The event has risen close to $7.5 million to purchase medical equipment, fund research and educational programs at BC Children's Hospital. My role entails organizing the gala dinner, and more specifically coordinating youth volunteers for the event. For my leadership and volunteering commitments, I was nominated as the Outstand Youth Philanthropist by the hospital and in the end becoming one of the two finalists for the award. Next year I plan to study Business Administration at the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California. My future aspirations are to move back to Asia to begin my business career. Thank you for considering me for this scholarship. Matthew Gu ?? ?? ?? ?? 2010-2011 Dogwood District Scholarship.
