CHASE YOUR DREMS. ROAD TO OXFORD UNIVERSITY

Fantasy

Chapter 1

CHASE YOUR DREAMS. ROAD TO OXFORD UNIVERSITY.

MY NAME IS EDWIN MAKITLA, IM FROM MPUMALANGA,

BUT I GROW UP IN MIDRAND.

I’M A FINANCIAL JOURNALIST, AND FILM&TV STUDENT, SO I WRITE STORIES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH BUSINESS, ENTERPRENEURS, AND THAT HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING THAT IS FINANCIAL THAT AFFTECTS PEOPLE.

I APPLIED FOR OXFORD UNIVERSITY AND COLOMBIA UNIVERSITY AT THE END OF 2014. I GOT IN, BUT IT WASN’T THAT DIFFICULT PROCESS, BUT AFTER THAN I NEEDED TO GET AN ENDROLMENT FEE I THINK IT WAS [R80.000] [40] US DOLLAR.

‘SEVEN DAY’ BEFORE THE ENDROLMENT FEE HAS TO BE IN, I WAS LIKE ‘’I DON’T HAVE THE MONEY’’ MY MOTHER CAN’T GIVE ME THE MONEY SO NO ONE.

I STRUGGLE THAT WEEK STRESSED OUT, BUT I THOUGHT MAYBE ‘’IF I TRY’’ ON (FACEBOOK, TWITTER, AND WHATSAPP) PEOPLE MIGHT BE ABLE TO HELP ME TO GET THE MONEY.

I WAS TALKING TO MY COUSIN AND I WAS LIKE ‘’LOOK COUSIN’’ I JUST DON’T HAVE OTHER OPTIONS AT THE MOMENT SO I NEED A WAY TO GET MONEY, AND I’M THINKNG TO ASK PEOPLE TO DONATE MONEY FOR ME.

WHEN I WAS AT WITS AS SOON AS THEY SAID TO ME, THEY IS AN OPPORTUNITY TO GO TO COLOMBIA, OR OXFORD UNIVERSITY WHEN I’M DONE TO GO TO YOUR ‘’MASTERS DEGREE’’

‘’I SET MY MIND ON THAT DREAM’’

AND I WAS LIKE…….’’THAT’S MY GOAL, THAT’S WHERE I WANT TO BE’’

AND ‘’NO MATTER WHAT’’ I AM GOING TO OXFORD UNIVERSITY (UNITED KINGDOM)

‘’JUST DON’T EVER GIVE UP AND DON’T LISTEN TO NEGATIVE PEOPLE, AND PEOPLE WHO JUST DON’T LIKE YOU TO SUCCESS, BECAUSE THEY ARE LOT OF PEOPLE WHO WILL BE NEGATIVE ABOUT LIFE, BUT YOU HAVE TO FOCUS ON YOUR GOALS, AND FOCUS ON YOUR DREAMS.’’

‘’JUST KEEP ON PUSHING’’

‘’I REALLY THINK YOU SHOULD FOCUS ON YOUR GOALS, AND IF YOU REALLY WANT SOMETHING GO AFTER IT, AND FIND DIFFERENT WAYS TO DO IT.’’

Sara Grover: Being that this is your first story and I assume first draft, a lot of little mistakes are common, we all have made them; little things like your instead of you're, missed capitalization, missing punctuation, etc. As for the plot, I have a lot of questions and I did leave comments on certain sect...

Catherine Kopf: Wow! This was a really great story. I really enjoy reading fantasy, so it didn't take long for me to become invested in the book and its characters like Jacob. I really liked your writing style, and it seemed to flow very well. The descriptions that you used for your world were also created n...

Valeria Rocco Lo Presti: I have to confess that I read the book in less than a week. I became obsessed with the characters as I was entering to their world. It is definitely a must for those who enjoy a pleasant reading with amazing writing skills!

Alex Rushmer: This was not what I expected, but I enjoyed it a lot Malfoy was always one of the characters that I liked a lot, so I like that a lot of this happens between him and Colette. I read the first couple chapters, and I enjoyed your writing style and am excited to see where you take this story. My com...

SPepper: I had a hard time putting this book down even to go to sleep. The story is compelling and beautifully character driven. I hope author will make this a series.

genlynne2379: I read the other review of this book and I must say that I disagree with it wholeheartedly. I do not believe the author put the apostrophes in the names just to be unique, but because the characters are supposedly of a different race than humans. They are Anmah. They should have different names a...

Janna Niemi: This book turned out to be a real page turner and I loved it. It could have gone on a bit longer but the ending was great although it wasn't completely a happy ending. The characters were great and the whole aspect of a whole different world appealed to me very much

minallie: One word, brilliant

Hudson: Your story was fantastic Erin! The Rising Sun was one of the first stories I read on Inkitt, and I have to say I don't regret the three to four days I spent pouring through the story.Probably the biggest strength I see in your writing is your characterisation of Eliana, Oriens, and the rest of th...

Charlie_8472: Recommended to me by a friend, I thought I'd give this a read. As a hobbyist blacksmith, the blurb certainly caught my attention. I found the sentence about them drinking, dancing and fighting a strange combination of activities, perhaps a reflection of the writer’s personality and humour. Howeve...

maewilde25: I am so in love with this story!!! captivated me till the very end, there wasn't a dull moment.
