My Coventry Dream: Help dedicated student Iyebiye get to university
June 23, 2017
A crowdfunding campaign by an African student to pay his Coventry University tuition.
Iyebiye Olawuyi needs to raise $20,000 for his tuition and a few other requirements before the 12th of July when he has to book his place.
The Nigerian student, who calls himself “a writer, blogger, songwriter and an aspiring media and entertainment strategist”applied and was admitted into an MA program in Communication, Culture and Media at Coventry University, Uk earlier this year. But has been not been able to raise the funds from his $2548, a year income.
In a YouTube video and long form article on the website titled, My Coventry Dream, Iyebiye introduces the campaign, detailing the breakdown of costs and also the reason he wants to study at Coventry.
The Nigerian who says he wants to tell seemingly boring stories like politics or business news to young people in rather cool and interesting ways started the fundraiser on Generosity.com a few days ago, he has however not been receiving many donations, due to poor promotion.
The African student who says he wants to take African entertainment to the world offers perks like t-shirts and hoodies, copies of his book, blog posts, and even a song named and written about a person or business, all free of charge to donors.
Iyebiye who hopes to visit the top media houses in England, if he gets there says he wants to be one of the top media and entertainment strategists to come out of Africa.
