Hi there everybody! Let me give you guys a brief intro about myself/description. This is a personal fundraiser for my studies in Canada. My name is Zanele Mlambo and I'm from Johannesburg South Africa, I am an ambivert (in my case, it just means I am an introvert most of the time - anxious because of my anxiety disorder, shy, love spending time alone and sometimes I'm an extrovert - outgoing, adventurous etc.
Everyday I aspire to bring light to those around me often forgetting about myself and people also forgetting about me, but I still pick myself and spread as much moral and emotional support I can. I am God-fearing, very artistic. I've been taking Visual arts as a high school subject and I improve each and every day. I always dream about travelling the world and finally being somewhere outside of South Africa. I have friends, family friends and actual blood-related family in all parts of the world, especially Canada and I am so grateful for my acceptance. I chose to study in Canada to expand my opportunities in education and especially in the work field. South Africa is a developing 3rd world country however, I won't have the same amount of experience and opportunities if I stay here and I also won't have time to connect with my family members as much as I would probably wish to.
Reason for starting my campaign and how will I spend the money:
Well, I started this campaign to raise tuition fee costs as well as extra expenses that will have to paid for to secure my journey of studying in Canada. I am very blessed and grateful for the sacrifices my parents made to even pay for all my application fees which are very costly when you convert it to ZAR(R) rands. It amounted to over R1,000 in zar(Rands). and it has caused some strain and more stress in my household because my dad is the only working parent and he is trying by all means to "find" money somewhere to pay for: my flight to Winnipeg, My study and work permit, My tuition, Accommodation, Monthly budget and Itinerary items for dorm room etc. However, I understand that everything above will require lot more money than the target I have set so, I have made the target goal amount $36 500 (CAD) which will include only the following 3 things written in bullet points below. I hope and pray, and will be holding onto faith that God will help my dad take care of the rest.
Spending of the money:
- International Student Tuition (Undergraduate) = $32 000(CAD) and then the remainder will be spent on:
- Study & Work Permit ( This will firstly be a legal document to make me study there legally, and work is included in this permit because I plan on working while studying either physically or freelancing online).
- Shipping company - To ship my cutlery, bed cover, luggage etc. to my dorm room
Any amount you are able to donate towards my campaign is a step closer and closer to helping me cover these costs. Please help me reach my target goal and share to this to others that might be able to contribute towards my goal. Thank you in advance. :)
