Help me raise tuition funds CampaignMy name is Lindi Sithembile Skhosana and I was born and raised in a township called Moloto in the Mpumalanga province. When I started my academic journey, I did was not able to secure any financial aid. However, my father was able to pay my fees, which I greatly appreciated. After completing my honors degree in 2019, I decided to take a gap year where I can properly decide the field in psychology that I wanted to pursue. During that time, I volunteered at a hospital and worked in schools. While working in schools, I noticed how many children with learning barriers were unable to services of an educational psychologist, which led them to struggle reaching their academic milestones. Hence I decided to pursue a career in educational psychology.
Getting accepted into the psychology masters program is a difficult and emotionally taxing journey as the competition is very high. This is why I was so overjoyed when I got accepted into the 2023 masters program. Upon accepting the offer, I did not have any secured funding, and I was still applying for bursaries. My father offered to pay for my fees, unfortunately, he fell ill and then he lost his job. I did not have anyone to pay for my tuition and the bursaries that I applied for, rejected me. I did give as I knew that I have goals that I wanted to achieve and this was a once in a lifetime opportunity for me.
When I applied for masters in educational psychology, I had a goal. My goal was to work hand in hand with schools in townships to identify learners with learning barriers so we can find schools that can better cater for their individual needs. I cannot reach my goals if I do not complete my studies. I am currently unable to register for the 2024 academic year as I am owing the university. The funds raised will directly go into my student account and they will assist me with registering for the 2024 academic year and also pay for my tuition fees so I can complete my studies. Your donations will be highly helpful and appreciated.
