Dear Potential Funder
A few days ago I got a Conditional Acceptance into the University of Debrecen(in Hungary, Europe) to pursue something I have been longing to do for all my Life and that is to become a Professional Pilot, but due to financial constraints I might not be able to go to Europe in September 2021. Note this fund raiser is not for tuition of the actual training or flight ticket to Europe as the Hungarian government will sponsor that.
Brief history of who I am:
My Name is Collen Thabang Khumalo, a 19 year old residing in a small town called Kwamhlanga, In the Province of Mpumalanga, South Africa. An introduction to my story, I was 15 years old when I decided that I wanted to become a pilot, and from then forward, the dream kept me going. When I was in grade 11 I became one of the FlyZulu Aviation alumi, as a result of that I got an introductory flight at Eagle Air, Wonderboom. That whole experience was a confirmation to me that I flying planes is something I really want to do. Fast foward with the goal of wanting to become a pilot in my mind, I worked really hard in school and I came second in my school's matric class. With the exceptional grades I hoped to join the South African Airforce or SACAA's bursary but unfortunetly they stop their intake due to the finacial impact of Covid.
For those that don't know pilot training is very expensive, thus at home they cannot afford to sponsor my trainig which is why I never got discouraged by this but instead I looked for more opportunities. I ended up being nominated by the Department of Higher Education for the Hungarian scholarship I applied for.
I would like you to please help me to go to Hungary by donating any amount you can. This money will be used for my class one medical certificate( which I need inorder to get my final acceptance) and the rest I will use to purchase a new laptop, which I will need for my online learning when I get there.
