Story

Hello! My name is Jonathan Díaz but most people know me as Jona. I am fundraising to raise my university fees to complete my languages degree in Puebla, Mexico.

Why do I need support to pay my university fees? I understand University fees can be a great burden for most students, however in Mexico there are no student loans and little support available like in other countries. The majority of young people in Mexico, especially those from a lower family economic background such as myself, are unable to go to University due to this as the wages in Mexico are not enough to pay for the fees.

I have already completed two years of my languages degree (specialising in Translation and Interpretation) in La UMAD university in Puebla, Mexico, where I have been studying English, French and German.

Through the generosity and kindness of a British family, I was invited to live in the south of England the last year and have worked voluntarily in a local secondary school as a Languages and Music assistant as well as improving my knowledge of the English language.

I am now returning to Mexico and have 2 years left of my degree to complete before then graduating in July 2020. I have really enjoyed working as a languages assistant in England and because of this experience, I am currently planning to complete my degree to then be able to teach languages abroad.

As some of you know, I planned to study Music in the UK, as I had been successful in achieving a place in Trinity Laban Conservatoire in Greenwich, London. Due to the university fees at this institution (£83,200 in total) it was sadly not possible for me to study there, however God has given me peace in this. I plan to continue my violin and composition studies in the Conservatoire of Puebla in Mexico alongside my language degree to improve my skills in violin playing and to then offer this as my ministry in Church. One of my greatest dreams is to translate various worship songs into different languages as a way to reach many Nations with the Good News. I am very passionate about using what God has given me with music and combining it with my language studies as my ministry.

If you would be interested in supporting me on a monthly basis, I would be incredibly grateful and would love to hear from you at j.diazrangel@aol.co.uk

    Hola! Just a little update... The funds for semester 5 (August 2018-December 2018) have been raised! Such an answer to prayer! Thank you for all your support. I still have 3 semesters left to pay - could you help me at all to pay for my next semester (semester six: January 2019-July 2019)? If 13 people gave £25 once a month for the next 18 months, all of my university fees would be paid! If you'd be interested in helping on a more regular basis, please do drop me an email at j.diazrangel@aol.co.uk

    Hi everyone! I just want to say a HUGE thank you for all you support in helping me to try and raise my university fees to study at Trinity Laban in London. Sadly, I haven't been able to raise the amount needed so will be using the money raised to complete my languages degree in Mexico. I hope to continue with my music studies in Music alongside my language studies and will use my violin-playing as my ministry in church. Thank you so much for all your help! If anyone would like me to return their donation, I am more than happy to do so. Gracias!
