Dear Blanco Terciopelo (Headmaster of The Utopian, Unique Unicorn Academy of Rainbow and Sunshine-laden Possibilities for Gifted Individuals),
I bestow upon you my utmost gratitude for the extremely generous grant regarding your school’s tuition. Never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined a school that would be as perfect for me as The Unicorn Academy. From the moment I walked through the doors of the school building (which was a beautiful stone castle)—and even more so when I heard a few of the teachers and students speak—I was utterly captivated by all that The Utopian, Unique Unicorn Academy of Rainbow and Sunshine-laden Possibilities for Gifted Individuals had to offer.
As I saw more of the school and met other teachers, not only was I immensely impressed by the high standards of academic excellence (especially in the area of unicornology), but I found the welcoming, accepting atmosphere of the school to be immensely fulfilling and unique.
When I shadowed at The Unicorn Academy for a day, I instantly felt like I truly belonged here. Everyone was genuinely kind and welcoming, and the students’ vast amounts of intelligence and love for learning absolutely inspired and motivated me. Not to mention their sensational imaginations, which were put to work when my mentors took me out to the courtyard to feed apples and oranges to the unicorns. It took every ounce of my brainpower, but finally, after much painstaking effort, I, too, was able to vaguely perceive a translucent white unicorn with a silver horn. It’s a wonder how far the powers of the imagination can stretch!
I believe that I will be among kindred spirits at The Utopian, Unique Unicorn Academy of Rainbow and Sunshine-laden Possibilities for Gifted Individuals. Though I must say that I surely hope that I will be able to keep up in such an academically superior setting!
After becoming familiar with your school, a light flickered in my soul and I knew that I had found the right place. I am intrigued by the imaginative, fantastical community of unicorn believers that The Utopian, Unique Unicorn Academy of Rainbow and Sunshine-laden Possibilities for Gifted Individuals consists of, as well as the emphasis placed upon individual growth spiritually, academically, emotionally, socially, and imagination-wise. I truly admire the fact that your school organizes fundraisers every year to save the unicorns. I pray day and night that the generations succeeding us will be able to stroke a unicorn’s soft, silky mane, or pet their velvety fur, or see their magical horns glisten in the sunlight.
Hence, from the bottom of my heart, I thank you for making it possible for me to attend this diligent dwelling of ethics and education. I promise to work my hardest and put forth abundant effort as a student of this school, and as a strong supporter of unicorn preservation.
Your fellow believer,
Protagonize, Writer World ABCDE
Author’s note: “Blanco Terciopelo” means “White Velvet” in Spanish. I just thought that name added a nice touch.
