Hello and welcome to my fundraiser!
Thanks for dropping by. I am trying to raise money to send myself to the University of Edinburgh Summer School in June 2019 to do a four week course called 'Edinburgh: City of Literature'.
But... tuition fees are really expensive.
A little bit about me:
My name is Michaela and I am from Johannesburg, South Africa. I am currently completing my honours degree in English Literature Studies at the University of Pretoria. I completed my undergraduate degree in 2016 with a 70% average.
English literature is, and always has been, my passion. I matriculated from Parktown High School for Girls with a distinction in English. I have also been tutoring English to kids of all ages for just under two years. I would like to someday get my PHD in English Literature (specifically postcolonial or nineteenth century literature) from a world-leading university like the University of Edinburgh. I whole-heartedly believe that education through cultural experience is the best form of education.
And so, I am asking for your help in making this learning experience a reality for me!
Thanks for your time in visiting my fund!

Disclaimer: donations are non-refundable. In the highly unlikely event that the course happens to fall through, the course will be postponed to the following year to allow for more donation time. Alternately, the funds raised will be used to pursue a part-time Masters degree in English Literature at the University of Edinburgh
