    Dear Sir/Madam,
    I am Dessie Mammo Alemu, 36 years old and with sound physique from a developing country, Ethiopia. I have been graduated both my first and second degree in English language and curriculum studies respectively. I have more than 10 years experience as a teacher and school director for primary and then secondary schools. I had been a certified and then diploma holder teacher before upgrading my qualification to Bachelor and masters level. Besides, I have worked as a Woreda/District education office head in Ethiopia (in North Gondar). I have scored excellent achievements in my walks of work life and also I have 3.46 CGPA (cumulative grade point in my masters degree). I am working as a curriculum and module preparation officer at Gondar College of Teachers Education by now. I want abroad further education opportunity either in master’s degree or PhD degree in related courses to advance both my qualification and life career in particular and to contribute my share to my country, continent and to the world in general.
    Therefore, I greatly want your genuine support to achieve my objective given here above. Many thanks!
    Yours with best wishes!
