Dear Dr. Hazboun:

I wish 2017 will bring your generous hearts health, joy and happiness. Honestly this is how I am feeling right now because of you. I am only one step away from graduating and getting my bachelor’s degree in Business Administration. The journey of four years is one semester far from me, who imagined this day will come that fast! Because of your lavish association and donors others and i could make our dreams come true.

My parents are proud of my accomplishment in university and so proud of me. They are delighted and excited for my graduation and seminar. By the end of April I will be having my seminar, which is quite different from usual seminars. Our faculty will conduct a business market will last for three continuous days. We agreed on opening a booth for accessories and Pandora Jewelry. I would like to invite you to visit the country and also be part of my success and be there to see me and other awardees and participate in our graduation ceremony.

As I said earlier, I wouldn’t have reached this point, where I stand now without your generosity in supporting my journey through Bethlehem University. So once again I won’t be able to find the right to words to thank you or express how grateful I am for having this opportunity. I wish i was up to your standards and did not disappoint you at any phase. I promise I will make more effort this semester to guarantee graduating with an honor. And i’d like to mention again that you are all welcome to come and participate in our seminar and graduation.

Best regards and wishes to you and your families.

Yours sincerely

Samah Bassam Rishmawi

Dear Dr. Hazboun:

I write to express my gratitude for you granting me a scholarship for the second semester in a row. Your assistance will allow me to continue my studies at Bethlehem University, which is a dream coming true.

I am a mother of three, the oldest of which is in his 9th grade, and the youngest is still in kindergarden and the middle one is in her second grade. So, finishing my degree is a huge challenge to me and to my family as there are many things to worry about, thus your help lifted part of the burden of my shoulder and my husband’s as well.

I do really hope you continue with your assistance to me and to other students at Bethlehem University, because you are giving us hope to stay here in Palestine the holy land where were born and lived all our lives and hopefully continue to live.

May God Bless you and reward you for the good work you are doing

Best regards

Dina Ibrahim Awwad

Dear Dr. Hazboun:
Dear Mr.&Ms. Handal:

I’d like to first give my gratitude and appreciation to your generosity and your help for this semester and to the Handal's Family for their support.

My name is Dina Awwad, I’m 21 years old and I live in Beit Jala ( a small nice town not so far from Bethlehem). I graduated high school back in 2013 and decided to start studying accounting in Bethlehem University. Bethlehem University was always known of its strong faculty of Business administration and that encouraged me to enrol as these were subjects of my concern.

During my studies at Bethlehem university I was able to get to know a lot of good friends, and inspired by amazing teachers. The fact that the material is symmetric with those taught in worldwide universities makes the learning experience much interesting and fruitful. Also, I’m part of the ambassador program, which is a program where students act as representatives of the university talking to donors, visitors and potential investors who come to the university from around the world, as an ambassador I learned to share my story , enhanced my public speaking skills and was more aware of how is the political situation perceived by people who live abroad. Moreover, I did my internship in USA with Catholic charities which is an organization focused on society development, and helping anyone who wants real help and support. There I had training in my field of study (accounting)in the finance department. I aspire to get my CPA once graduating and then pursuing my MA abroad and in the future my Phd.

I come from a humble big family of 6. I have two brothers and one sister. My dad is a n accountant, he has been in his job ever since he graduated high school. His job was really good and the business was at its peak in his early days. But after the first intifada and the wall of separation things went down with business and a lot of deals were lost due to constraints on mobility. My mom is a matron in the holy family hospital. My older brother and sister are doctors While my younger brother is still in high school. In my free time I usually volunteer as helping out people makes me happy, I read a lot of books of different genres, and getting to know new cultures and meeting new people. As making connections is a significant key in the business and social world.

Sincerely Yours,
Dina Awwad

I have had two clinical practices, one in Saint Joseph hospital in Jerusalem whereas the other was in Beit Jala hospital.

I am a senior at Bethlehem University majoring in Accounting and minoring in Business Administration. I will graduate in June and I am so excited about it! I am writing this letter to thank you for your spcial help and tell you about how it has aided me through my four year journey in Bethlehem University.

Talking about my University life brings a smile to my face! It was more than amazing. I learned a lot about my field of expertise and how to act both professionally and efficiently in the real market as a Business woman. Being an exchange student in Handong Global University and an Ambassador of my university and country in South Korea and West Virginia were experiences that changed my life! And most importantly, I met friends, professors, bosses, and coworkers from all over the world that touched my heart deeply!

My university life wouldn’t have been extraordinary without The Bethlehem Association’s generosity through my years at Bethlehem University. Having a big family with one source of income can make life tough and that is the reason why God sends his angels in different forms. Yours Faithfully,
