Hello everyone,my name is Wynand, I am a 31 year old male from South Africa. For The Last 3 years, that is from 13 February 2016 - 11 February 2019, I worked as a volunteer for a non-profit organization called GBA ships. During my time working as a volunteer I started to realize all, or 90% of my friends were all from Asia. South Korea, China, Malaysia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Taiwan, Singapore, Indonesia and the list can probably go on and on. I realized I have a heart for the people of Asia and fell in-love with the culture. In February 2019 I came home to South Africa and tried all kinds if things like starting a Youtube Channel using my songwriting and posting songs I write and song covers online, I was thinking of starting Chicken farming, but realized before I even started that I am not a farmer. I was thinking of starting a nursery with my mom, but realized I hate gardening, so that will obviously not work.
Then something amazing happened I actually fell in-love with the most amazing, most precious, most beautiful girl in the whole wide world, who just happened to be from China. I mention this because I do she a future with this person, and want to honest and open. When we started to date I did not have a clue of truly what I wanted to do, or in a way I didn't have the strong drive to push me to take a step of faith into any certain direction.
A friend of mine always told me I am good with children, because for some reason kids mostly connect with me, because I have learned that I have the ability to go down to their level, to be a adult, but when needed also be a child( I am using figurative language here) so that I can relate better to the child. I've been listening to Mandarin Music a lot on YouTube and I came across a kids section of one of the channels and I love to listen to the kids singing. These kids touched my heart so much. So I decided in November to do s TEFL course so that I can and teach English in China and also be closer to my special person obviously, but we learned that I need a bachelors degree. At first I was thinking of studying theology because I want to learn more about biblical things, but I decided that it will be wise to first study education and afterwards I can still do theology. So I actually applied a little late into Varsity College, but thankfully they still have space.
So that is why I am starting this campaign, I do not have the finances at the moment. And to be honest I am a little late, but still want to try.
So with your help I can do my First year and get my Higher Certificate in Early Childhood Care and Education, and in 3-4 Years get my bachelors in Education.
Please Help me make a difference in China.
Your contribution of 1 USD-20 USD will help me a lot to achieve my goals.
Thank you so much!
