Ayesha Khurram, who describes herself as a massive Swifty and for many years, shared a screenshot of the PayPal screen which showed her on the receiving end of $4,829.45, which is around $6,386.47 in Canadian Dollars.

Khurram was born in Pakistan and grew up in Dubai before immigrating to Canada in 2015.

According to a report from USA Today, Taylor Swift recently donated a large sum of money to one of her fans to help pay for her expensive college education. "I literally cried so much", Ayesha told E! "It was like this guardian angel that kind of popped in and said, 'Hey, you have troubles, but now you don't have troubles anymore, '" explained Khurram from her Mississauga home.

Khurram has been a big fan of Swift since 2009.

"She is honestly the kindest most genuine, most loving caring person I know".

"Be good to people, be kind to people, pay it forward".

Thanks to Swift, Khurram said she will be starting her second year in the Accounting and Financial Management program at the University of Waterloo this fall.

After reacting to her blessing in an emotional video, Ayesha went into further detail about her ordeal in another blog post in which she revealed her mother suffers with Stage 3 kidney disease and that her parents often stressed to make things work on minimum wage salaries.

"It would've been pretty tough I had no idea how we were going to do it", said the 20-year-old.

"I saved up, and I got no sleep, I just wanted to be there", Khurram recalls, "I barely had enough for the nosebleeds, but I got (the tickets)".

After news of the story broke, Paypal matched Swift's contribution.

Khurram says she even got to meet the singer backstage at her concert in 2018.

It was an act of kindness Khurram said she will remember for the rest of her life. She said Swift's gift will her pursue her educational goals. Khurram said "Lover" is her favourite song, which widely drops on Friday.
