CHASE YOUR DREAMS. ROAD TO OXFORD UNIVERSITY.

CHASE YOUR DREAMS. ROAD TO OXFORD UNIVERSITY.

MY NAME IS EDWIN MAKITLA, IM FROM MPUMALANGA,

BUT I GROW UP IN MIDRAND.

I’M A FINANCIAL JOURNALIST, AND FILM&TV STUDENT, SO I WRITE STORIES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH BUSINESS, ENTERPRENEURS, AND THAT HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING THAT IS FINANCIAL THAT AFFTECTS PEOPLE.

 

I APPLIED FOR OXFORD UNIVERSITY AND COLOMBIA UNIVERSITY AT THE END OF 2014. I GOT IN, BUT IT WASN’T THAT DIFFICULT PROCESS, BUT AFTER THAN I NEEDED TO GET AN ENDROLMENT FEE I THINK IT WAS [R80.000] [40] US DOLLAR.

 

‘SEVEN DAY’ BEFORE THE ENDROLMENT FEE HAS TO BE IN, I WAS LIKE ‘’I DON’T HAVE THE MONEY’’ MY MOTHER CAN’T GIVE ME THE MONEY SO NO ONE.

I STRUGGLE THAT WEEK STRESSED OUT, BUT I THOUGHT MAYBE ‘’IF I TRY’’ ON (FACEBOOK, TWITTER, AND WHATSAPP) PEOPLE MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP ME TO GET THE MONEY.

 

I WAS TALKING TO MY COUSIN AND I WAS LIKE ‘’LOOK COUSIN’’ I JUST DON’T HAVE OTHER OPTIONS AT THE MOMENT SO I NEED A WAY TO GET MONEY, AND I’M THINKNG TO ASK PEOPLE TO DONATE MONEY FOR ME.

 

WHEN I WAS AT WITS AS SOON AS THEY SAID TO ME, THEY IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO COLOMBIA, OR OXFORD UNIVERSITY WHEN I’M DONE TO GO TO YOUR ‘’MASTERS DEGREE’’

 

‘’I SET MY MIND ON THAT DREAM’’

AND I WAS LIKE…….’’THAT’S MY GOAL, THAT’S WHERE I WANT TO BE’’

AND ‘’NO MATTER WHAT’’ I AM GOING TO OXFORD UNIVERSITY (UNITED KINGDOM)

 

‘’JUST DON’T EVER GIVE UP AND DON’T LISTEN TO NEGATIVE PEOPLE, AND PEOPLE WHO JUST DON’T LIKE YOU TO SUCCESS, BECAUSE THEY ARE LOT OF PEOPLE WHO WILL BE NEGATIVE ABOUT LIFE, BUT YOU HAVE TO FOCUS ON YOUR GOALS, AND FOCUS ON YOUR DREAMS.’’

‘’JUST KEEP ON PUSHING’’

 

 

‘’I REALLY THINK YOU SHOULD FOCUS ON YOUR GOALS, AND IF YOU REALLY WANT SOMETHING GO AFTER IT, AND FIND DIFFERENT WAYS TO DO IT.’’
