Dear Salim, Dr. Salameh, Dr. Nick,
This is just a short notification that my application as a crew member aboard Phoenicia has been accepted. Thus it is with great joy that i send you this email to thank you for your precious support that has allowed me to join the expedition to represent Lebanon and the Phoenician civilization. I am currently working with a team of movie makers to create a short clip that can be used to promote the expedition among the Lebanese diaspora. The focus of the video will be to convey the idea that such expedition is not only about history, but also about diverting people's mind in lebanon to something greater than their fussy political divides that cause death and violence that has been particularly horrifying these past weeks. This movie will help me gather sponsorship for my participation as well. Therefore, it would me my pleasure to keep you updated on the progress and share the video once it is complete.
Thank you again for the support and sending you my best wishes from Montreal.
