Thank you letter from Yingying Liu

(Translated by Charlie Wang)


敬爱的郭老师:

您好:

今天,偶然翻了翻自己过往的邮箱,突然翻到了十年前给您写的信,一段温暖的记忆瞬间涌入脑海,不知道您还记得我吗?我是您十年前资助的延寿一中的高中生刘滢滢,如今也是个25岁的大姑娘了。和您报告一下,我如愿考上了哈尔滨医科大学然后又考了研,现在是哈医大二院的研究生,专业是超声医学,算是暂时实现了我儿时的梦想。虽然在我看来没有很成功,但是至少父母很知足,在村子里走路都挺胸抬头的,可有面子了🤭。

清楚的记得曾经给您的外甥女写过信,我记得姐姐的学校是南开大学,关于您的一切我也就只知道这么多了。12年、13年断断续续给您写过邮件,但都没有收到您的回复,可能这个邮箱您不经常用,亦或者是您不想被打扰,今天给您写这封邮件,是想再次感谢您。

回想起那时我刚刚高一,月考在学年考了第四名,班级考了第一名,我内心喜悦极了,班主任又通知我得到了您的资助,10年前1800元对我的家庭来说真的真的太多了,我现在还能记起妈妈欣慰的笑脸,说着说着就觉得有些心酸,太遗憾了,联系不上您了,不知道您是否一切安好,真的好想抱抱您,您应该也会由衷地替我开心吧。

研究生期间,我的导师、同门们对我都很好,我也已经通过了执业医师考试,是一名医生了,马上就赚钱养家啦。将来,等我有能力时,我也会去帮助下一个需要帮助的孩子,将您给予的这份默默无闻的爱传递下去。

最后,不知道您能否收到我的感谢和祝福,真心的感谢您,真诚地祝福您,身体健康,事事顺心,元宵节快乐!


Dear Ms. Guo,

How do you do?


Today, when I was looking through my old emails, I found my letter to you from ten years ago. I felt a flood of warmth in my heart. Do you still remember me? It’s me, Yingying Liu. Ten years ago, I received your scholarship aid in Yanshou First High School. I’m all grown up now, 25 years old. I was accepted to Harbin Medical University and am currently a graduate student at Harbin Medical University Affiliated 2nd Hospital, majoring in ultrasound medicine. You can say that I’ve achieved my childhood dream. And although I don’t consider myself to be super successful, at least my parents are happy. They can now walk in the village with their heads up high🤭.


I clearly remember writing to your niece. She went to Nankai University. That’s everything I know about you. In 2012, 2013, I wrote to you occasionally, but didn’t receive your response. Perhaps it’s because you didn’t use this address often or you wished to not be disturbed. Today, I’m writing to you because I want to thank you again.


Remembering back to 10th grade, I got fourth in the grade and first in my class on the monthly exam. I was overjoyed. My teacher also informed me that I received your scholarship aid. That 1800 yuan ten years ago meant so so much to my family, truly. I can still clearly recall my mom’s smile. Even talking about it now tugs at my heartstrings. It’s disheartening that I couldn’t reach you. Is everything going well with you? I really just wish to hug you. I think you’ll be genuinely happy for me.

In graduate school, my teachers and peers have all been very nice to me, and I’ve passed my medical license exam and am now a doctor. Soon, I’ll be able to make money and provide for my family! In the future, when I have the ability, I will also help those children in need like you did and pass on this silent love that you gave me all those years ago.


Lastly, I don’t know if this will ever reach you, but I am truly grateful and wish you the best of health, the best of luck, and happy Lantern Festival!
