Taylor Swift has donated more than £23,000 to aid a London-based student in her dream of studying Mathematics at university.
The American pop star made the contribution via a Go Fund Me page raising money for Vitoria Mario, an aspiring mathematician who could not afford to pay for university in the UK.
Mario’s online fundraising page reveals how she has lived in the UK for four years after moving from Portugal, reports BBC.
The page also details how she received an offer to study Mathematics at the University of Warwick but was ineligible for maintenance loans or grants. Her family could not afford to support her while she studied at the University.
Vitoria said: “I was worrying too much about the money, what I have to do and if I have to look for a job. She actually made my dream come true.”
Taylor Swift said that she was moved by the story of the 18-year-old teenager who secured two A*s and an A last week after moving to the UK from Portugal four years ago.
Alongside the donation, Taylor Swift wrote also wrote a message on Vitoria’s fundraising page: “Vitoria, I came across your story online and am so inspired by your drive and dedication to turning your dreams into reality.”
“I want to gift you the rest of your goal amount. Good luck with everything you do! Love, Taylor.”
The funding to help her achieve her dreams has ofcourse left Vitoria utterly jubilated, reports standardmedia.
Victoria said: “My mind has been blown. I was wondering how to reach enough people to hit my goal and now this miracle has happened.”
“I’m just over the moon. I got 1A and 2A*s in my exam results recently and this is just a huge cherry on the cake!” she added.
According to reports, Taylor Swift has previously made a number of impromptu donations to her fans, including a New York photographer who asked for financial support via Tumbler.
