A University of Waterloo student recently received a major surprise when she learned that Taylor Swift had sent her $6,386.47 to pay for her tuition. Ayesha Khurram had been struggling to come up with the money after learning that she would receive less funding this year from the Ontario Student Assistance Program. A note attached to the transfer said: "Ayesha, get your learn on, girl! I love you, Taylor!" Khurram noted: "I can't put it into words. It was insane. I could not believe it.” CBC (ON)
