Hi! My name is Gabriella Murphy and I am 19 years old. I currently reside in Cape Town, South Africa.
I've always had a passion for music since I was a little girl and it has always been a dream of mine to study overseas because the possibilities and opportunities are endless. I got accepted to Azusa Pacific University in California, America for a Bachelors Degree in Music Composition last year but I felt God telling me it was not my time to go so I studied at the University of Cape Town for a year.
Now, with a lot of prayer, I feel God has called me to to further my studies at APU. With a generous spirit, my administrative counselor has pushed my semester to this August 2018. So I am enrolled but I would need a bank statement to issue my student visa. I applied for the CMA (college of music) scholarship and I received it! The scholarship is worth $3000 if I maintain a 3.0 GPA. The rand is very weak compared to the dollar but I believe God will make a way because no matter how big or small a contribution is, it is just one step closer to achieving the goal!
