  1. Hi, my name is Mudrakat Alabi-Macfoy. My sister Saffy Macfoy told me about this briefly and commanded me to check it out! Lol! i am glad i did. I am very interested in sponsorship because i enjoy writing and would love to publish some works of mine.

    As excited as i was about this seminar, it hit me soon enough that i have a professional examniation to write on that day and unfortunately, i would not be able to make it. i was wondering if i could forward some of my works to you so you can see if you can consider me for sponsorship.

    thank you very much and keep up the good work.

  2. Hi Mudrakat, so sad you can't make it on that day!!

    Anyway you can send your stuff to me on I'll definitely inform you whenever another opportunity like this comes up!!
