My name is Kamokgelo Mashifane and I am a second year public health student at Monash South Africa I have been accepted to participate in the 2019 Model united nations in Asia. However, my parents cannot provide me with the funds to participate in the conference.
When I got the acceptance letter I was so excited. It was a confirmation that I am a step closer from reaching my goal (to eradicate poverty in Africa and to improve Africa's health systems). And the only thing that can stop me is the inability to pay for the required fees to participate in the programme.
