Taylor Swift is always lurking her fans’ social media pages, and helping them out whenever possible. Thanks to the songstress, Toronto resident Ayesha Khurram won’t be struggling to pay her college tuition this semester.
Billboard confirms Swift sent the student $6,386.47 CAD which converts to about $4,800 USD after Khurram admitted on Tumblr that her parents, who both worked minimum wage jobs, couldn’t afford her college expenses.
Khurram took to Instagram to share the screenshot of the PayPal transfer from Taylor Nation, LLC:

@paypal just matched up taylor’s amount and now i have more money than i could ever ask for/dream of and i can’t stop crying. @taylorswift this is all because of you and no words could ever be enough to thank you for what you’ve done for me, now and over the years. i love you
In a very similar grateful video posted to Tumblr, the student is audibly crying as she weeps, “Guys, I can’t type and I can’t form words but Taylor, I love you so much. Every single time in my life I’ve been going through something, you’ve been there for me.”
