Passion Before Pride CampaignI, Aakifah Salie, am an ambitious and hardworking young lady. I was given a golden opportunity to attend a private college to study to become a Montessori teacher. This qualification can assist me with working aboard, opening up my own Montessori Educare or simply gaining access to a decent job to support myself and my family.
In order to make a life for myself, I have accumulated experience working with children whilst doing a government programme as a teachers assistant and have since found my true passion and calling. As small as it may seem to some, it is a great privilege for me to be one of the few children in my community to further my education. My family has always helped out or fellow neighbours wherever we could and by studying for this Higher Certificate I am confident that we will be able to give even more.
I rely heavily and desperately upon this funding to carry me through this journey as I do not have any other financial support. I am willing to open myself up and put my pride aside for my passion. Should you help me, my gratitude for your compassion and assistance will continue as I commence and complete my studies. Whatever help you may be able to offer will be deeply appreciated.
