South African girl only needs $250 to take her GRE test… her dream is to study abroad

Nomzamo Ntombela of South Africa created a GoFundMe page on November 15th stating she needs help paying to take her GRE to be eligible to apply for grad school in the US.

The twenty-two year old wrote on her GoFundMe: 


It has always been my dream to study abroad to broaden not only my knowledge of other cultures but also to acquire and refine skills – as an aspiring academic.
This GRE is a requirement for Graduate applications within the United States and as most applications close soon- I am set to hopefully write it at the end of this month (November).

Thank you so much for everything !!”

The $250 has yet to be met. Although the end of November has come and Ntombela should have taken her exams by now, she will most certainly need more than $250 if she plans to study in the US.
