Fiona Asiedu—a student from South West London—got some pretty incredible news earlier today, when she found out a certain grime star from Croydon had very generously helped towards the £12,000 needed to fund her Masters degree in Human Development & Psychology at the highly respected Harvard Graduate School of Education.
Initially, Fiona Asiedu, who previously studied at Oxford, reached out to a friend who blasted the crowdfunding link out on Twitter, asking for RTs to get Stormzy's attention in the hopes of one RT. You know how these things go—it's a long shot, and Stormzy's a busy guy—but a tweet in his direction couldn't hurt. Maybe he'd RT, maybe not.
Understandably, Asiedu was blown away when a donation of £9,000 was made to the crowdfunding page that she had set up. The huge donation came courtesy of Michael Ebenazer Kwadjo Omari Owuo Junior, which his PR has since confirmed is indeed Stormzy.
In total, her Harvard fees will come to £59,000 for the nine months she'll attend the prestigious university. Fortunately, Asiedu has been awarded a scholarship as well as financial aid from the department she'll be studying in.
What a don.
