|Help A Nigerian Girl Achieve Her Dream Of Going To Cambridge by alosiby92(f): 11:20am On Aug 27, 2013|
A year ago, I had the privilege of meeting this girl. She called me a few months ago to let me know she had gained admission to Cambridge University to do her Masters. I was so happy for her. However, her parents are barely able to afford it. Being of strong faith, she decided to take matters into her own hands and start fundraising her tuition via social media.
The following is her story and if you, like me, believe in dreaming big and achieving dreams, please follow the link to either donate in prayer or in funding.
My name is Chinwe Oriji. I am from Trenton, NJ. I recently graduated from Rutgers University this spring with a double major in Africana Studies and Public Health. When I think about my future, I see myself becoming a professor, working in a non-profit, and sharing my testimony through public speaking but I never imagined the University of Cambridge as being a part of the plan.

Unfortunately I got in late on this one. I just hope all her dreams are being achieved. YOU GO GIRL.

The said girl is now a Master's graduate of the university of Cambridge and is currently pursuing her PhD at the University of Texas. she managed to raise a bit for her tuition and God provided the rest in terms of scholarships. Just goes to show that with Him all things are possible
Thanks for the support. Hopefully it's not too late to help anyone else out there acheive their dreams...even if all you can offer is a prayer and a little bit of faith

Happy for her. All things "legal and just" are indeed possible with GOD most definitely. And just to add, I would rather people offer their prayers without leaving out the bread (even if it's just mere crumbs) as this just goes to prove and validate the faith. Do stay blessed.
