Hey guys, my name is Stephanie Cheung (Steph for short)! I'm currently a student, going to Uni next year and I really would like help with visiting South Africa, Johannesburg in December 2017. Through my time of depression, I continued my hobby of gaming and I came across some South Africans who really helped me through the difficult times. Although not face to face, we developed close bonds and I know they will always listen to me and laugh with me. To repay them, I really would like to meet them in real life and experience South African culture, which I have learnt to appreciate throughout the past few years.
I know this isn't a typical campaign that people would like to sponsor, but I would like to say from my heart that there is nothing I have done in my life so far that has sparked my excitement. When I realised that some people that may live half way across the globe could care more for you than people living closer, I realised that there are good and understanding people in every country you go. One of my closest and dearest South African friends have spent the last 2 years talking to me every single day and he has helped me out of my depression and I would like to thank him for that.
I really wish to be able to book my plane ticket and accommodation next May (2017) so that I can visit in December and any donations / funds, no matter how big or small, will help me to achieve one of my life long goals as of present and I hope that you understand how much this means to me. Thank you.
