Bring Reem to Canada

Let me introduce my friend Karima Mahmood (Reem), she is a pioneer feminist activist. In May, she received an admission to study gender and women's studies at York University, Canada. This is a dream program for any feminist activist. However, she hasn't received any scholarships. Since the day Reem received the admission letter, she has started working very hard to take the opportunity and make her dream come true. She had applied to different scholarships and won a very competitive one that paid her first semester tuition fees, so now SHE IS ENROLLED at the university. Students are starting study in their home countries online. She has already made half of her way, and she needs a small push to reach her goal. She is enrolled now at York University with her first semester tuition fees paid. However, she may lose this amazing opportunity because she can't prove in her visa application that she can support herself financially.

This is Reem's offer letter:

More About Reem's work:
At the age of 21, she took the first step towards her dream by volunteering with a feminist organization to write and translate feminist articles. Through feminist courses, books, and podcasts, she dedicated the next two years of her life to enhancing the quality of her activism. She even went as far as taking several of MIT's open gender studies courses. As a result of this devoted work, she founded the first feminist platform in her country in 2018. It became one of the most popular local platforms reaching more than 500k people monthly. Since she was 21, she has never stopped blogging on an individual basis about feminist issues on her Facebook account that now has over 10000 followers. Being the only young woman to self-publish a book about feminism in her country, she published her first book, titled ‘’Very Feminist Stories’’, in 2018. she also launched her YouTube channel four months ago; she mainly discusses feminism, self-development, and society. Reem deserves this exceptional opportunity because I believe she is a person who will contribute to changing the world into a better place.

She needs your help to be able to travel to Canada. This money will cover her living expenses for the first year and the flight tickets.
