Aside from her musical sensibilities, another reason why fans love Taylor Swift is because of her golden heart. In another episode of "Taylor makes fans' dreams come true," the Folklore singer just helped an aspiring college student get one step closer to her dreams by donating to her college fund. 

CNN reports that Taylor donated around $30,000 (that's roughly P1,450,000) to an 18-year-old student in London. The report says that Vitoria Mario moved to London four years ago despite not knowing how to speak English and still aced her classes in secondary school. This year, she received an offer to study Mathematics at the Univeristy of Warwick, one of UK's top univerisities.

Unfortunately, Vitoria is struggling financially and couldn't afford to head to college, so she decided to start a GoFundMe account in hopes of garnering enough help for her college tuition. In a stroke of luck, Taylor learned of her story online and went on to donate enough money to complete her goal. Her page now says that she has accumulated around £46,000 out of her £40,000-goal.

After making the donation (£23,373 to be exact), Taylor also left an encouraging comment on Vitoria's GoFundMe page, saying, "Vitoria, I came across your story online and am so inspired by your drive and dedication to turning your dreams into reality. I want to gift you the rest of your goal amount. Good luck with everything you do! Love, Taylor." The musician, however, has not yet made a comment about her donation on any social media platform as of writing.

In an interview with BBC Radio London, Vitoria admitted that she didn't know how Taylor could have caught wind of her story, but she was thankful nonetheless. "I want to thank her with all my heart," she says, and promised to make her proud.

This isn't the first time Taylor made a random donation to people in need. She has also been silently helping out fans in financial need during the coronavirus pandemic. Props to you, Taylor!
