Dear Mr. D’Souza,

This letter is to inform you that I have submitted an application for the 2010 diploma programme of Reporting in Conflict Areas. I am a working journalist and have been in the reporting field for two years. However, I feel my abilities are limited to local reporting and I want to expand my horizons by getting exposed to more global developments.

I am interested in assignments in Africa and West Asia and hence feel that your programme will provide me the necessary training and knowledge to understand the culture and different aspects of covering a story in such conflict areas.

If you have any questions regarding my application, you can call or mail me at the contact details enclosed with my letter. Thank you for your time and consideration and hope to hear from you soon.

Yours truly,

Sandy Lawson
