My name is One Pusumane , a young female motswana student at the African Leadership University in Mauritius. I am currently on a full scholarship to study a BA (Hons) Social Sciences degree and in the process of applying for my masters degree in the Anthropology at Stanford University. I am passionate about leadership and social impact through gender rights activism and my dream is to join academia and study African feminism so as to contribute to gender activism at grassroots level in Botswana. However, the journey towards achieving my dreams is threatened by financial constraints.
As a primary caretaker to my younger sister, I am required to finance her education: her O level exams this year, as well as her wellbeing and other needs. I have been compelled to exhaust all the income I derive from the study jobs and internships I have taken up, in order to cover these costs. This has made it impossible to afford the application fee to the MA Anthropology course that I dream of studying at Stanford. My grandparents, who are my guardians, are unable to assist me because they are retired.
Considering the financial difficulties I am facing, I put in an application for the Knight Hennessy Scholarship Program which will enable me to pursue my dreams at Stanford University. However, I am required to put in a separate application to Stanford University which is beyond my financial means. I would appreciate your help in any donation you can manage to help me process my application which is due by the 3rd of December 2018.The total application fees are $250 ( $125 for application fees , $125 to verify certificates) and the $5 is because the fund platform requires raising funds of more than 250. .
Your donation will be highly appreciated! Thank you so much for your time and support.
