Mahdi Esmirali
Hello, I am Mehdi Smir Ali, 14 years old from Iran. I am very interested in studying at a college in the United States or Europe, but due to financial constraints, I have been barred from doing so until I turned to financial aid and scholarships. I have very high grades in math, including geometry, I have a probability that my grade in math is 3.9 out of 4 and I hope to be able to study at your college. Thanks
