Please apply

Reem, I was just about to write to tell you about this. I encourage you to apply as you may not have experience in the field but will bring a fresh perspective that also has value. Should you feel that you lack the experience they seek, you might inquire as to whether they offer internships or volunteer opportunities. You might also want to add your name to their mailing list so that you receive notice of any events that may be held in your area. Best wishes,
Janice
