Dear Alan sir,

I hope this message finds you well. I write to you today with overwhelming emotions and heartfelt gratitude. After years of perseverance, I have officially earned my PhD, a feat that seemed enormous when I embarked on this journey. Today, as I celebrate this achievement, I find myself reflecting on those who have profoundly influenced this journey, and your name stands out prominently.

I wish to express my sincerest gratitude to you for introducing me to the world of salutogenic design. This concept became not just the foundation of my research, but also a significant part of my life philosophy. Your patient explanations and willingness to share your vast knowledge not only shaped my academic understanding, but also my perspective on children's health and well-being in learning environments.

Your unwavering support and encouragement throughout my PhD journey have been nothing short of a blessing. Today, as I officially bear the title of 'Dr.', I recognize that this achievement is not solely mine. It is a testament to the collective efforts, encouragement, and guidance of mentors like you.

Thank you, Alan sir, for your priceless contribution to my journey. I am beyond grateful for your mentorship, and I look forward to carrying forward the lessons you've imparted to me as I step into the next phase of my professional life.


With profound gratitude,
