My name is Patience Gorah, i'm from south Africa, Cape Town , I got accepted at Minnesota State University, Mankato. I got a scholarship which will cover my tuition. My F1 Visa was approved and I'm hoping to raise enough money for my traveling and medical insurance. The flight will cost R12 720. I also need $1000 compulsory medical insurance on arrival. The rest I'm hoping to use to settle in and also buy textbooks for the first semester.
I'm going to study Biology, and I want to be a forensic scientist. Growing up I wanted to be a lawyer (prosecutor) because of my love for the law but after thorough research and career exploration, I would really be happy and suited as a forensic scientist and still work with the lawyers and police officers.
Getting these donations and reaching my target would really help me and my mother. My mother is an amazing woman and she works as a domestic worker. she loves her job and has done so much to make sure I'm well fed and well educated. I'm the first one in my family to be accepted and attend a university in my family and it is amazing to see my mother look at me with pride and joy.
