I have been accepted into one of the world's top three Political Science universities, Sciences Po, but I need your help to get there.

Main image

I have always had a passion for politics and the systems that bring us together as humans. I have always believed in education, and gaining knowledge has always been my main motivation in life. After a lot of hard work and sacrifice, I have been offered a place at Sciences Po, in Reims, France to study political science. Even though it is ranked third, behind Harvard and Oxford, it was always my first choice, simply put it's my dream university.

I have always believed that political change is best executed at the community level. I hope to return to Aotearoa with the skills to implement my own philosophy of integrating community projects and business interests, to create solutions from the ground up that may operate in tandem with government initiatives. I really believe in people power, and now I need some of those people to believe in my power.

I have worked my whole life for this opportunity and I need a little help to overcome the last obstacle. I know 100,000 is a big number, but its only 1000 people giving $100! I would truly be forever grateful for your generosity, I appeal to you, invest in a brighter future!

Mauri Ora!

Use of funds

The funds raised will be used to cover the cost of tuition, living costs, and flights. On the leanest budget, I could manage I'll need $33,260 a year for 3 years. Should I exceed my target, I plan to pursue my Master's, and would put it towards that.
