Hi guys, thanks for taking the time to read this. I am a South African student who has lived in South-East Asia my whole life as a missionary's kid. Now it's time for me to leave the nest and spread my wings as a free soul. Ok, enough with the cliche non-sense. I'll be moving to Australia (Melbourne) in Febuary 2013 with the goal of getting a Bachelor of Arts (Media and Communications) at Swinburne University of Technology. I have been in love with the arts for a long time, especially the digital form, and being able to study this stuff for 3 years would be a dream come true. Furthermore, this degree will also provide me with a way to infiltrate (I hope the Aus government doesn't catch on to my plan!) this country, eventually get permanent residence and settle down. I'm only half joking. The truth is, I have fell in love with Australia and it would be a dream come true to live there in the long term. Now, I need some help. I have been working very hard here in Singapore doing every job that comes my way and saving all I can to scrape together enough to pay off the first year (while financially supporting myself and paying for a driving license). After dumping all my savings in and my education fund (it's pretty small), I have another AUS$4,172 to pay off. This is NOT including my monthly living costs there, a car I would need to buy, books and materials etc. I hate asking for money but it would be really awesome if you could throw in a bit to help me out. Any amount will be a massive help!
