Swansea University, one of the top 10 Universities in the UK, has awarded Yemi a £1000 ($1,530) bursary towards tuition at the University. This generous award boosts attaining the goal for his campaign, “Liftoff to Swansea” by 15%.
“This is to confirm that the above named student has been awarded a Swansea University International Office Scholarship for the 2013/2014 academic year to the value of £1,000, which will be deducted from their tuition fees”, Swansea University’s Head of International Recruitment states, in an email confirming the award.
Liftoff to Swansea, is Yemi’s CrowdFunding effort to raise money for college. The campaign aims to ease financial holdups that have hitherto blocked his enrollment for aerospace engineering in Swansea University.
Yemi is a tenacious 34-yr old who has chosen to resume his education and obtain his degree, after 15yrs, when his peers already are in middle and senior management in their careers and settled in families. His motivation stems from a clear recognition of education as the foundation of development and a strong passion for aerospace engineering with the intent to pursue it as a career. Agreeing with him, Swansea University accepted and endowed him, enabling him to pursue his passion.
Persevering and determined to succeed, he’s trying the third time for enrollment and to clear the holdup blocking his desire by reaching out to the global assembly to confront the challenge of paying for college. Members are invited to, like Swansea University, also support his desire to resume his education and enable him pursue his passion. As a bonus for their solidarity, participants choose and take away from a range of crafted accessories for their partnership.
