Hello! My name is Deanna from Singapore and I have been offered a place to study for Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Fashion and Marketing at Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA). This degree program is a 1-year top-up offered in collaboration with University of East London (UEL), UK. I recently graduated and received my diploma in Fashion Merchandising and Marketing and was awarded with a Meritorious Award for Concept and Branding at NAFA's Graduation Fashion Show. My graduating project was also recognised and selected for NAFA's Best of Best Show, which features the best works from each graduating courses.
As I embark on a new journey in my studies, I am seeking your help to fund for my administration/insurance fees, travel expenditures (to Europe as part of a study trip), course materials and additional tuition fees. I come from a family that values education and will sacrifice and make the effort to help support one another. I had never been in a necessity to seek external help to fund my studies, however this time, money is really tight and my parents can only help me minimally.
I am planning to get a study loan from a local bank for my tuition fees of $20,800. This amount itself is a financial stretch for me and it does not cover the fees stated above hence I am really working to collect any funds I can get. Fashion studies as a whole isn't a low-cost program to pursue either, however, I've glued my heart to it and I'm really passionate about achieving my goals in the fashion industry, hence will not turn down any chances I get. I am trying to apply for a scholarship too but any amount received might take months to process and I would need to settle any fees I have the soonest.
I can assure you I am a hardworking and dedicated student. I work towards a goal and I thrive hard so I will definitely ensure your donations are put to great use and not disappoint you. Thank you!
