  1. I have to agree with this that there are political agendas which may have made donating to Noroh seem like a better idea this year than say a couple years ago. She is an international student and should be expected to pay those fees upon admission. There are medical schools in her own home country yet she had the privilege to study abroad and pay international fees. This is a privilege. She was unable to pay her tuition and then came to Canadians to ask for their money. Where is the financial support from her home country of Nigeria?
  2. Not meaning to rain on her. That is not my intention. I apologize if it comes across that way. I think asking for fundraising is entirely appropriate and justified. I just think some of the writing like ineligibility to access Canadian financial resources and the 4x tuition cost is reasonable and has no impact on her narrative save for seeming more like a victim to receive more funds. That part can be omitted. In fact, I would be more curious as to why she hasn't requested loans from Nigeria.
  3. This statement also makes no sense: Additionally, as an international student in Canada, I am not eligible to obtain financial support from the government nor lines of credit from banks (except a Canadian citizen or permanent resident cosigns). Why would she even mention that she cannot receive student loans or LOCs from Canadian resources? She is from Nigeria. She should be eligible for all of this back home. This is where the story is written to tug at heart strings of Canadians and the social justice.
  4. Not a problem. It's a free country and she smartly asked people for money and it has gone viral on medical social media. She is now well over her goal. She is at $127,000 now and it is still open. At what point, will the dollar value exceed what she wanted and become unethical?
  5. Domestic tuition is less because of the subsidies. She is an international student who has not contributed which leads to no subsidies and paying the upfront cost of medical school.
  6. Her story doesn't make sense. She is like any other student. Do people not see that she is an international student who paid no taxes before coming here for school? Why is everyone sharing this gofundme on social media? She is an international student/immigrant like any other foreign student from China, India, or the Middle East. https://www.gofundme.com/f/Noroh-Medical-School-Tuition?utm_source=customer&utm_campaign=p_cp share-sheet&utm_medium=copy_link_all
  7. Manitoba is mostly white. Take a look at this dated but still relevant data: Manitoba Demographics At the 2006 census, the ethnic composition of Manitoba was 69.9% white, 13.08% visible minority groups and 17% Aboriginal (11% First Nations, 6.5% Metis). The visible minority groups included: Filipino: 5% South Asian: 2.2% Black: 1.7% Chinese: 1.5% Latin American: 0.8% Southeast Asian: 0.7% Arab: 0.3% Korean: 0.3% West Asian: 0.2% Japanese: 0.2% The most common ethnic origins i
