A Pakistani student in Canada has called Taylor Swift a ‘guardian angel’ after the singer payed her tuition fees and rent.

Ayesha Khurram who is entering her second year in the accounting and financial management program at the University of Waterloo took to Instagram to share her financial struggles.

Ayesha created a PayPal account following a friend’s suggestion to help raise funds. A few hours after her PayPal account was created, Ayesha received an email notifying her that singer-songwriter Taylor Swift had sent her $6,386.47 to pay for her tuition.

The message said, “Ayesha, get your learn on girl! I love you! Taylor.” According to CBC News, Ayesha said, “When I posted, I was just like venting. It’s hard to pay off tuition. It’s really expensive.

“My parents actually cried when I told them the Taylor news because they couldn’t believe it. “It’s like a guardian angel is watching or something.

“It’s more than what I asked for.

She is just so generous. I literally cried myself to sleep last night. This is the kind of thing you don’t expect. You don’t even dream about it. In no corner of your brain are you thinking,

‘Taylor Swift is going to send me money and help me out.”
