Hi all, first of all I would like to say thank you for deciding to click on my campaign.
Let me tell you about myself, I am currently studying Communication and multimedia studies at the NWU in hopes of one day reaching my dream of producing my own documentaries or running a business full-time.
I'm currently in my second year of studies and I rely mostly on a student loan to pay for my studies and accommodation. In addition to working in the afternoons to earn bit extra to pay for transport, food, and rent, I also do volunteer work at our local campus radio station.
As a side project I am trying to run a business part-time and I try to use the profits to pay for any extra expenses I might have during the month and the excess I pay towards my student loan. I do this to make the load from my parents a little lighter since its because of them I can now have the honor to study at such a prestigious university.
We haven't always had it easy, finances were difficult and we had to make some major adjustments to make ends meet. I feel that its now my turn to give back to them because even through everything they always made sure my siblings and I had everything we needed before providing for themselves. The monthly installment currently is just over $300 and when they can they also transfer grocery money to me which is about $50.
I would like to be able to pay off my loan as soon as possible and I trust in my faith that I will be able to do that. If I can achieve this I will relieve stress from both my family and I.
I am asking you to help me in joining hands to help pay off my student loan and reduce the burden my parents have to carry. All proceeds of this campaign will go directly towards my student loan and I will not see a single cent of it. I am not doing this for myself, but rather the people who stood behind me through thick and thin. My parents.
