Taylor donates $30,000 to help a 18-year-old student pay her tuition

Recommended Posts


Vitoria Mario set up a GoFundMe page to raise the £40,000 ($53,000) she needed to attend university to study math, and with Swift's donation she hit her goal.

Mario, a young woman who was "unable to utter a word in English" when she moved to the UK from Portugal in 2016, still achieved top grades in her GCSEs -- exams usually taken by English students at the end of their fifth year in secondary school -- in 2018.

Mario wrote on GoFundMe about her financial struggles in trying to pursue higher education, explaining that she was not eligible for loans or grants, because she does not have "Home" status in the UK.

Swift came across the page and donated a sum of £23,373 ($30,000).

Mario says "it was a blessing" and adds if it wasn't for the donation, she would "definitely be struggling" financially.
