We all know what the word “hope” means. Different people may have different understandings of the term and may have different hopes for themselves. My hope is to become a doctor, to save the many people who are facing death.

Whenever I talk about my hope my eyes fill with tears. My father died of that incurable disease. Whenever I think of AIDS I hate it to death. I hate it because it has taken away the lives of my Dad and many other young people. AIDS is as cruel as a heartless person. It is a pity that current medical technology can’t save those who should be saved.

After my father passed away, our family was in very difficult position. I could not afford to go to school. Uncle To then helped me go back to school. I don’t have much to express my gratitude to him. I can only study hard and become a doctor and save people’s lives, so as not to let him down.

I know that once the hope is set, I should strive ahead, and consider it as my life-long mission.

I thank my sponsors for their care of me.
