Mr D for Master study

Update posted by Denis Kan On Aug 23, 2018

With profound gratefulness, I have landed in New York two nights ago.

Although jet lag starts to kick in, but all is well. A pastor family host me for these few days, very kind and welcoming, lovely people. Attached picture was taken this morning, when the pastor hosting me showing me area around my school. He showed me how to move around from subways, reading maps, dos and don'ts in NY.May God continue to use them to bless even more people who come across their lives.


Meanwhile, tomorrow will start orientation. Then will continue to hunt for room. Already in contact to view the room this Friday, hopefully all is well and I can move there by Saturday. Class most likely beginning next Monday.

Again, thanks you all for your kind support! And THIS IS NOT FINAL UPDATE!

I shall work hard (very hard) and update my student life here.

Also, you may add me on facebook.

Wish you all a great day ahead!

Dear all, just to clarify as well as follow up on previous update.

Toward the end of 2017, I have update here that ANU plan was a no go, as the fund raised was insufficient to carry on next journey. As the offer was already deferred once, it cannot be further deferred and I have to let go the offer.

Earlier this year, I have applied for several universities in the states, all with potential assistantship to cover tuition and living cost. Early in May 2018 (last month!), I got offer from Yeshiva University (YU) for Master of Arts in Mathematics.

As of this point, I have secure about 12k USD to cover tuition fee through friendly loan.
So financially I still need about 17k USD for tuition and university fees, plus 12k USD living cost.
The living cost is what I hope to raise here through this campaign, as US student VISA doesn't allow student to work outside campus.

Apart from finance, I am waiting for I-20 from Yu so that I can apply for student VISA. Hopefully I will receive it soon and proceed with VISA application.

If all works well, I will be flying in mid-August.
Hopefully... I'll be student again soon.

That's all for now, feel free to contact me for more detail!
Thanks for reading, praying, donating, sharing, etc...
Gracias!

Dear all,

With peaceful heart, I announce that ANU plan is a no go.
Past few months has been anxious time for me, especially when the funding coming in slowly after first two weeks of launching this campaign, worrying if I would receive enough support to venture new challenge. It turns out that things could happen other way. And to date, I have received about AUD 2800 (some in MYR), which is far from 108000 aims.

Nevertheless, I am not disappointed nor defeated. Yes I really hope for ANU, but He always has a better plan. So I trust and move on, as mentioned in previous update, to apply for other universities with better chance of securing financial aids. The donations I received will go to application process of these universities.

Sincerely, I thanks you all for your support. It is indeed encouraging for me. It appears as number on my screen, but behind it are all your kindness, encouragement, assurance of what I have been doing and wish to achieve.

I will still keep this site as long as possible, with updates of progress, so stay in tune!

Until then, wish you all a merry Christmas and happy 2018!

Truthfully,

Denis

Received first donation! (Yes, you may think it is just 1 AUD, but i am very very very encouraged and motivated! Thx man!)

Also, with that I discover this, what i actually received is 0.66 AUD.
Here is how it works: 4% go get funding processing fee, and 0.34 AUD transaction fee for PayPal.
So by using Paypal or credit card,
1AUD donation - 0.04 will go to gogetfunding fee + 0.34 transaction fee = i get 0.66AUD (66% of donation)
5AUD donation - 0.20 will go to gogetfunding fee + 0.34 transaction fee = i get 4.46AUD (89% of donation)
10AUD donation - 0.40 will go to gogetfunding fee + 0.34 transaction fee = i get 9.26AUD (92.6% of donation)

So, for my future donor, here is some suggestions:
1. If possible, try donate offline. (I just updated my bank details)
2. If you have to donate here, maybe donate a bit more? (Again, no obligation, just finding ways to make sure most of your donation actually goes into my study fund)

Last, many thanks for the first donor! \(^o^)/
(More please :P )

Overwhelmed... I think this is the word that best describe my feeling... Thanks to you all, many of you choose to donate anonymously so i’m not gonna mention names, but i know who you all are... Thanks for taking extra time to read and help to promote when you are in exam season (or soon), and donating while you are still students, I actually felt embarrassed cause as your lecturer I should be blessing your life but now i’m receiving your kindnesses, and proud for you all at the same time! (weird feeling huh?) Some of you were in my class, 1401, 1501 (thx Sean for the extra comments and encouragement), 1601(thx wilson for the blessing, and study hard for you A2 please!), some dropped out, and some from CF, and yet some not even from my class! Some not student... (LEL) Although still some distance from the aims, but really, for this "first blood" (any dota geek here?) Thanks you all first, and He remembers your kindness and reward you all accordingly!
