A Letter From My Cousin's Daughter

A few weeks ago I asked for folks to vote for my cousin's daughter, Nawwal, in a scholarship competition. Her princess-type opponent won, although Nawi got a lot of votes. She sent a letter to those who voted for her:

Hi guys!

I know its taken me a while to write this, but I wanted to send a thank you to everyone who voted for me at It was such an affirming experience... I realized the depths in which I am cared for. Seeing so many people go to bat for me was worth more than the money, and I mean it.

To friends of friends, and those of you I don't know, I am so overwhelmed by your support! I wish I could meet every single one of you and thank you individually. You all are incredible. It looks like I will attend either Pacific University in Forest Grove, Oregon, the University of New England in Biddeford, Maine, or Guilford College in Greensboro, North Carolina. If any of you are near those cities, let me know!

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I hope I can return the favor to you.
