Taylor Swift helps a Pakistani student in Canada by sending her tuition money

Ayesha Khurram can now carry on her education in Ontario University thanks to the singer giving her over $6000
Updated 21 Aug, 2019

A student from Ontario university got the best present from her favourite pop star; the chance to continue her education.

Ayesha Khurram met Taylor Swift a year ago when the singer had a concert in Toronto and while it was a fun memory, she thought nothing of it.

It was when Khurram and her family were struggling to pay her tuition fees for the university that she went online to ask for help.

"When I posted, I was just like venting. It's hard to pay off tuition. It's really expensive," Khurram told CBC.

"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!"

Said Ayesha, "It's more than what I asked for. She is just so generous. I literally cried myself to sleep last night. This is the kind of thing you don't expect. You don't even dream about it. In no corner of your brain are you thinking, 'Taylor Swift is going to send me money and help me out.'"

"It feels like this huge burden has been lifted off me. I literally feel so happy. I'm going to go out. I'm going to eat a burger. I'm going to watch a movie. I'm just going to celebrate, like fully. I can't believe this has happened to me.

"She is literally my favourite person on the planet," Khurram added.

We can see why!
