“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever” - Mahatma Gandhi
Highly intelligent individuals from all over the world flock to the United Kingdom for its quality education and so you can imagine how excited I am to be one of the few chosen to do my Masters of Psychology at the University of Edinburgh September this year. Unfortunately, getting a tertiary education is expensive anywhere in the world, especially when the exchange rate is not in our favour.
However, in a society where historically, girls were not permitted to have careers and blacks were systematically prevented from getting quality education, this black girl here from the dusty streets of Dobsonville, Soweto has been invited to pursue her passion abroad and it would be a disservice against my kind to not try and see this through.
I therefore, call upon your kindness to help me in this time of need. All donations big and small are welcome and will go a long way in helping me to realize this amazing opportunity.
Phase 1 Deadline: 31st July 2018
The Project Amount of R599 000 is inclusive of tuition, accommodation, basic living allowance as a Tier 4 Visa requirement and travel.
*The campaign creator has opted that Backabuddy transfer the funds raised directly to University of Edinburgh once enough funds have been raised for this campaign. Failing which, the donors will be refunded their contibution minus the banking fees (up to 3%)*
