TORONTO (Web Desk) – A female Pakistani immigrant student from Ontario university got the best present from her favourite pop star Taylor Swift; the chance to continue her education. CBC News reported that when the provincial government announced severe cuts to the Ontario Student Assistance Program earlier this year, Ayesha Khurram was at a loss of how to pay her tuition and rent for the upcoming semester. Ayesha Khurram is entering second year in the accounting and financial management program at the University of Waterloo. As the daughter of two immigrant parents working low-wage jobs in Mississauga and with her mom also struggling from a chronic kidney disease, Khurram could not turn to her family for financial help. “One of my friends online was like, ‘You should drop your PayPal so we can help you out,’ and I was like, ‘That’s not a bad idea, I should totally do that.’ And then I did. And next thing I know, I literally have no more problems anymore.” She created the account. A couple of hours later, she received an email notifying her that singer-songwriter Taylor Swift had sent her $6,386.47 to pay for her tuition. “Ayesha, get your learn on girl!” the message read. “I love you! Taylor.” “When I posted, I was just like venting. It's hard to pay off tuition. It's really expensive," Ayesha told international media. One of my friends online was like, 'You should drop your PayPal so we can help you out,' and I was like, 'That's not a bad idea, I should totally do that.' And then I did. And next thing I know, I literally have no more problems anymore." Ayesha got a notification about an online money transfer by the Taylor Nation, LLC which showed a total of $6,386.47 had been sent to her with a note from Swift saying, "Ayesha, get your learn on, girl! I love you, Taylor!" https://www.instagram.com/p/B1FemQvgt8i/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet It was a special moment. "I can't put it into words. It was insane. I could not believe it," Ayesha said. I literally could not believe it. It was like this guardian angel that kind of popped in and said, ‘Hey, you have troubles, but now you don’t have troubles anymore,'” explained Khurram from her Mississauga home.
