Why Rafailia needs your help
Due to the poor economic situation in Greece, Rafailia has been unable to obtain loans to fund her music education at Pulse College. Even after obtaining several scholarships, she is currently lacking 10k Euros to pay for her remaining tuition fees. She might not be able to continue her studies (Semester 2) if she is unable to obtain this funding within the next 3 months (from December '16).
What Rafailia can give you if you support her education
Any contribution you can make to Rafailia will make a big difference. If you donate to Rafailia's campaign, she will keep you updated on her progress at Pulse College and her dreams to pursue film-scoring (sending you all her new compositions and score PDFs etc.). See below for a personal gift with donations above $50 SGD.
