Hi there!

I am a final year undergraduate psychology student at the University of Bath and I have been offered an unconditional place at Harvard on a Master's programme, 'Human Development and Psychology'.

However, there is a condition - money and lots of it! Harvard fees are $41,616 (nearly £25,000) for the year's tuition which does not include accomodation, flights, visas and general living costs. Even with UK fees for my undergraduate degree I have worked up to 25 hours a week to supplement my student loan in addition to working full time during holiday periods. On a US student visa I would be limited to 10 hours paid work a week so will not be able to support myself financially as I have done throughout my time at Bath. So I am in a really frustrating position.

It's taken me a long time to get to where I am today. Friends and family who know me well know my history battling with anorexia, all the time I spent in hosiptal and how much of a challenge it was for me to recover. I want a career that will put be in a position to help others- I believe Harvard will be a fantastic next step towards this goal.

Instead of focusing on the my studies during these last crucial months of my degree, I am writing letters- contacting charities, businesses and organisations for small amounts of sponsorship. My hope it that will the help of many, I will be able to afford this privileged opportunity. 

No amount is too small, I have been so touched by every single donation and gesture of support so far. Whether you can donate £5 or £500, it makes the world of difference to me and encourages me to fight to get the place. 

Thank you for visiting my page and your support.
