A graduate of Busan Arts High School, the “FACE” artist is reportedly one of the donors who contributed to the project. Jimin reportedly made his donation under Busan’s Green Umbrella Foundation.
One of the students who studied under this foundation’s scholarship program was reportedly accepted into the university of his dreams recently. With this, he thanked Jimin because he managed to focus on his studies with the scholarship.
The student reportedly personally sent his message of gratitude in a letter sent to the Green Umbrella Foundation.
“I was able to focus on my studies with the scholarship. Later, I will become a person who will be a good influence,” the student’s letter read.
The “Thank you, Senior!” project by Busan Ilbo and Green Umbrella Foundation started after recognizing the need to ensure equal educational opportunities for students.
