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.
Culture and Technology is an interdisciplinary Master of Arts Program
focusing on challenges posed by new technologies in a range of fields,

What Will I Do With The Money?
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.
