Dear Fans of Gillian,

I am most amazed and grateful to you for your work and support you have given me which has beyond your expectations empowered me with an opportunity of a lifetime. Through the inspiration and support of Gillian Anderson to the Buskaid Project you have made staggering efforts to generate funds in support of my studies at the Royal North College of Music. I am astounded by the way you believe in Gillianís support of Buskaid which has thus enabled me to study at the RNCM to pursue my dreams as a violinist. As a result, I know you will be pleased that I have now obtained a first class BMus (Hons) Degree and a high distinction for my practical examination recital on violin.

I hope that you will be mutually proud of this achievement, as this is a partial reflection of the wonderful things that you make possible. I also extended my sincere gratitude to Gillian Anderson, whom without her realisation and support of my aspirations; this would not have been possible.

Thank you all, and may you continue the wonderful work that you do to empower people all over the world.

Thank you,
Samson
