I am a third year student at the University of Pretoria. I am an LLB undergraduate student. My desire is to go back to school and complete my degree. However, I cannot as I have an outstanding historic debt of R52229.60 with the institution, which has now being handed over to the attorneys. I have even tried to make payments arrangements with the University, but I couldn't keep up with the payments. As my father is a single parent and has prostate cancer. We survive on his social grant which is not enough, as public hospital does not provide him with all the medication he needs.
This outstanding debt is the only thing right now preventing me from completing my degree, so that my dreams as an African child can be realised.
As I am passionate with law not because of the money or the status it holds, but because of the changes it is bringing in the world, as I want to be part of that change and also for my voice to heard!If only I could raise funds to assist me in paying up my historic debt and to able to register this year. As the saying goes"Educating a girl child, is educating a nation".
*Funds raised will be transferred directly to University of Pretoria*
