Dear Ian and Hanna,
I could still remember the very first day I arrived in America. It was you who picked me up at the airport and drove me to the campus. After the 36-hour exhausting flight, I walked out of the cabin and saw you waiting for me with a welcome board and your warm smiles, which I will definitely never forget. I would like to take this as an opportunity to express my sincere appreciation for your consistent help in my first year.
