CHASE YOUR DREMS. ROAD TO OXFORD UNIVERSITY

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.’’

sanbyra: This story is very well written and flows beautifully. I became engrossed in the romance element as well as the impending war. The action scenes are also depicted very well. I can't wait to read what happens next!

Theresa Alley: right from the start it is of the genre I love!! And it doesn't slow down from there!! I love that it kept me reading til I had no more story left to read!! I finished it in one day!! love this book!! looking forward to more from this author, if not about ASTA, more of the same style!! PLEASE!!!???

makaylakay: I love love this story! It's written incredibly and well thought-out plot! I love how it's a different twist in fantasy fiction, other then the usual vampire or werewolves. Love the romantics and drawn to the two characters so much already! This book will draw you in within the first chapter and ...

littlebunnypoopoos: Omg this was so amazing! The ending was a little bad and predictable. But otherwise, I need a second book or I'll die :D The character development was excellent and the whole romance, action, and suspense was superb

Jessica Esa: With a tantalising end to the first chapter, the authour has given us a treat and a welcome addition to the fantasy adventure genre. To limit it to just such would be an injustice however, as this novel clearly draws on elements of historical fiction, fairy tale and horror. Simply, there's someth...

tsolaidowu: I want a continuation dammit....I loved this book and the 1st one. I can't believe this is it. I'm not ready to say goodbye to Jeff and Lorie; and the gang. Great book and storyline. You're a genius Madelyn.

Jordi Roig Avellanet: The first one really took me up for a ride and surprised me really pleasently. This one, up until now, has been amazing too. The characters and their powers are very curious and I'd like to see where all this intense dark plotting goes. I hope it gets finished.

Mourn8220House: When first reading "Avarice," I thought it would be another fairytale but I was taken back the author's approach and choice of ending. There is little to be said for the story and overall plot besides the sudden twists and speculation, other than that I do not want to ruin a fantastic tale, you m...

Arabella: The catchy blurb caught my attention. The story is creepy but I would not qualify it as a horror story. The characters are likeable and I’m impatiently waiting for new stories from Obsidian Fae.

Felisa Yoder Osburn: I really enjoyed the story. Civil War stories are some of my favorites and the intertwining of the past with current times was wonderful. I look forward to reading the next stories.

Judy Haun-Morelock: A very imaginative, compelling story that captivates and holds your attention. Just how will the new Joshua deal with all the changes in his life: his appearance, surroundings, new friends and enemies.

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...

Sarah Luongo: My friend recommended this to me and I was hooked immediately. The images and voices of these characters come so clearly in my head, which I love. I love seeing from all of these characters points of view, and still the book has a continuous flow. There are some punctuation and grammar mistakes, ...

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...
