Sorry for my long text.
I have added this paragraph at the end of it. Please emend it too.
I admit that because of my solid grades I would not be competitive for an scholarship in any university let alone at prestigious universities like the University of ---. However, there are not many researchers who investigate in this area and you are one of my strong hopes to work with. I would like to know if there is any chance for me to pursue my PhD at your research group. I can show you my capabilities, for example providing a proposal regarding an area of interest.
Thank you in advance.
