Mbiko's Varsity Financial goal

Mbiko's Varsity Financial goal

Personal message

'Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.''
– Malcolm X

My name is Sicelo Mbiko from Blaaubosch Langa, KwaZulu-Natal

I am a student at the university of Pretoria and a former Maths and Geography tutor served under Brightsparks. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Commerce in Accounting sciences degree, in high hopes of pursuing my dream qualification of being a qualified chartered Accountant someday. 

I am currently living with my 79-year-old grandmother from Madadeni and with two of my younger siblings; her other grandchildren. My family solely depends on my grandmother’s government grant for survival and there is no other source of income. 

I was admitted to the University of Pretoria last year and I consider myself to be very fortunate to be a student at one of the most prestigious institutions in the world. However, I'm facing fees and financial hurdles and unable to pay the expected amount.

In the previous academic year, I was not awarded NSFAS funding, I therefore was prompted and desperately reached out for help
across the university’s finance department, and  I got to know some of the university’s staff members in the college of economics and management sciences like the student-faculty advisors who were of great assistance to me in terms of registration matters and in subsequently receiving student accommodation and being able to use the University's facilities.

However despite the encouraging efforts from kind people, I remain with a student debt and the University still hold me accountable to settle the amount no later than July 2022, failure of which I will face financial exclusion in accordance with the University of Pretoria's policies and Acts.

Prior to this circumstance, my grandmother and I took the necessary steps and tried reaching out to other possible sources of funding, including the local municipality in my area but still have not
received any financial assistance and hence I'm now opting for crowdfunding in hope of your kind support from your monetary means. 

I am a resilient and determined student and one who is willing to work at my hardest best at all times. That is how I was patient enough to turn my life around after failing in some of the endeavours I had pursued in the past, also with the motivations I kept on receiving from my grandmother who believed in me.

Throughout my life I've learned and hold to the philosophy of sharing with others and I believe it leads to one’s personal growth in turn. 

With that being said, I would be very humbled and extremely grateful if I can get your support in my educational cause to continue with my studies because I believe that receiving financial assistance will not only
benefit me as an individual but also the society in general, due to the fact
that I will be an active citizen able to use acquired skills towards developing my community.

I believe that working harder and trying my best at all times is what will create a better future for me and thus make my family very proud. 

Thank you immensely for your concern and I look forward to your generous gift.

Sincerely.

pAll funds raised will be paid directly to the relevant institution.
