A year ago, internet personality MsPuiyi (Siew Pui Yi) was best known for her content on OnlyFans. However, it seems the multi-talented influencer wasn’t going to stop there. Since then, MsPuiyi has moved on to bigger and better things. Her most recent endeavours include quitting OnlyFans and establishing her DJ career.
But, that wasn’t the end of it! On 14th February, MsPuiyi revealed her next venture. As someone who has worked hard to get where she is today, MsPuiyi knows better than anyone the value of opportunity. As such, she has decided to fund and offer her very own scholarship programme to help underprivileged students!
Despite how successful MsPuiyi is now, many of her followers know her journey to get there wasn’t easy. As she once shared, MsPuiyi came from an underprivileged family. “I always wished that I could have had extra financial help so that I could have furthered my studies,” the influencer admitted. “I wanted to pursue Medicine, but I couldn’t.”
MsPuiyi added that she had tried working for her dream by juggling several jobs while studying. However, her dream of becoming a surgeon remained unattainable due to several factors. “I (didn’t) have enough funding for my studies, my family was not privileged enough to (help) and I couldn’t find any scholarships (that could give me an) offer on time,” she explained.
The missed opportunity left her wondering if her life would have been very different if she had gotten that extra financial help. As such, MsPuiyi wondered if she could give others that opportunity instead. “I wish to give back to society by starting up this scholarship (and giving it) to students that need it the most,” she stated.
Together with Educapital, they will be giving out 1 million US$ to underprivileged students around the world. “Each student will be granted 1000 US$ to pursue whichever education field that they desire. (They will also be) provided access to financial hardship grants while in school, as well as access to business start-up grants upon graduation,” MsPuiyi declared.
While some have remained sceptical, many of her fans have been delighted by her goodwill. A few have even started asking about applying for it! It’s certainly an endeavour that many can get behind, and we do hope it helps those who need it. Kudos to MsPuiyi for her latest venture!
