Barely two years after talking down on persons who come online begging for assistance to fund their international studies popularly tagged as japa in Nigeria, a netizen identified as @Bukola_Beckley on X (formerly known as Twitter) has fallen into the same predicament.
Who is @bukola_beckley?
Bukola is a Masters student studying International Tourism and Event Management at Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland, United Kingdom.
@bukola_beckley’s Reactions to Sourcing for Funds Online
In October 2022, she reacted to people fond of begging to raise funds online saying that
if you really can’t afford japa, it’s better you stay in Nigeria, coming online to crowdfund is not all that
Why Bukola is Crowdfunding to Pay Her Tuition in the UK
According to her, her family encountered unexpected financial challenges due to the father’s job. In her post on X, she narrated thus:
Hello, I’m Bukola Mustapha, a dedicated student pursuing a Master’s degree in International Tourism and Event Management at Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland, UK. Recently, my family encountered unexpected financial challenges due to my father’s job. This has made it difficult for me to cover my remaining tuition fees. Education is my passion, and I’m determined to overcome this obstacle and achieve my dreams. With a looming deadline of February , I’m reaching out for support to raise the remaining balance for my tuition. Your contribution, big or small, will significantly aid me in continuing my studies and reaching my goals. Thank you for being a part of my journey. #EducationMatters #StudentFund #TuitionAssistance #FinancialAid #SupportEducation #HelpMeGraduate #CollegeFund #StudentSupport #Fundraiser #EducationForAll
