MY FUNDRAISER FOR GEORGETOWN UNIVERSITY

My name is Grace Chimezie, a twenty-three-year-old lecturer at Bingham University, a freelance journalist, a blogger and an entrepreneur; my work experience in the above field mentioned has spanned a little over five years. I have been accepted into Georgetown University’s Communication, Culture and Technology (CCT) program .






What is Georgetown CCT and Why this Program is Important to Me.

Communication, Culture and Technology is an interdisciplinary Master of Arts Program focusing on challenges posed by new technologies in a range of fields, including research, government, politics, arts, media, communication, business, health, and medicine. “By cutting across institutional and disciplinary boundaries, students develop new solutions caused by complex problems”.

Studying this program is important to me as it involves the various fields of my interest. It’s usually difficult to find a program that is all encompassing

With technology growth worldwide, Nigeria’s educational institution lag behind in exploring its possibilities, reducing chances of creative minds such as myself to gain experience as I would at CCT, in my home country.

This, however, would enable me to achieve my dream of having a Master’s degree, therefore, a path leading to my becoming a professor and also to be an example to my only younger sister who would find it easy to believe that her dreams are valid.

What Will I Do With The Money?

The estimated cost of my study for the first year of my study is $61,000 (including tuition, health, rent & utilities, books & supplies, and housing) and the exchange rate of the Nigerian currency doesn’t weigh much. I have currently raised a little $5,200 and do not have any scholarships yet. I plan to work to help cover some of my expenses but due to school work and restrictions on my student visa, I will only be able to work not more than 20 hours/week.

The money I raise will, therefore, go into covering the rest of my expenses. Any donations that you can give, big or small will be greatly appreciated.
