To introduce myself, and tell my story, please read my blog - taliaontoast.blogspot.com. Be sure to have some tissues ready, for tears of woe and joy.
Writing and studying are a journey that have walked with me my whole life:
Won an English scholarship to a private high school 1999
BALiterature in 2008, but couldn't complete due to finances, I received full distinctions.
Montessori Kindergarten Diploma (lowest mark 92%, highest 100%) - , completed in 2017.
Currently, I am a secretary and an online English teacher, to pay the bills. My partner and I have two amazing children(I am required by law to say that, as is every parent, but I do beg to differ sometimes. Wink, wink.) and we live in a tiny coastal town, with one robot.
My absolute dream is to finally complete my BA in Literature and Creative Writing. I have managed to raise 50% of the first module which costs £2928,76 (R52062,31) - the full amount for the first module is due by the 17th January. I have already registered and reserved my space in the course, and am just trusting that somehow I will find the balance needed.
The complete degree costs R312 373,86, over 6 modules R52 062,31/module. I earn less than R100 000 a year, so paying for this myself is impossible. But here goes to dreaming that it may be possible!
My family have pledged to help me with my first module, if I cannot raise the funds in time. With my mom and my Aunt both being retired, it is a big commitment for them, but they believe in me and my ability to succeed!
