Higher education is 100% more than a degree for me. It is a 9-years-old aspiration since I was about to graduate from Bachelor's degree study.
You might have experienced it all, the real constant struggle between doing what you dream to achieve, and doing what you need for a living. So here I am, 9 years after, 30% away from that dream financially. So far yet so close. The program is Master's degree, Analytics for Strategic Management.
Why do I want this master degree so badly? Because I am an average working class girl, who doesn't accept to be average. I want to thrive my way out of the perception that being immigrant, young parent, little-educated little-skilled means manual labor job in Europe. Knowledge and education is like food and water to me. I have taught myself much, enough to get to where I am right now, but not enough to take me soaring further. And I want to show to my brothers, sisters, peers back home that higher education is possible, executive job is possible, anything is possible, even when you grow up in a 4 square meter home and you have no money, like I used to.
Don't know a way, find the way. Don't have a way, make the way.
So, fund me! 1, 20, 50, 100 note, anything counts! My birthday is in September. Don't buy me presents. Gift me education, so I can be able to continue organizing those charity / socially responsible activities that you know I have been doing since student time. Gift me education, so I can make a tangible impact to my own life and those around me, socially and professionally. For my supporters in Norway, donation can be made to Vipps 46124998.
I thank you for your love and support. And wait till the day I share with you that I have passed this education. Sending you and yours beloved loads of love.
