After graduating in 2011 I entered to world of work and discovered my true passion is working with those who are experiencing emotional distress. I worked in a psychiatric hospital for two years followed by working for a charity with young people who are in care and are vulnerable to mental illess. After working hard in support worker roles I set my sights higher and obtained a place at the Institute of Education at UCL to study Psychology, specifically Child Development. My dream is to become a Clinical Psychologist working with children and young people and my Masters degree is the first step that will allow me to gain membership of the British Psychological Society therefore allowing me to progress on to the doctorate.
I am the first person in my family to attend University and come from a working class background so I am seeking help towards tuition fees which cost over 10,000. In return, as a small token of my appreciation I will write to each donor about my studies and research projects, sending copies of any published works and as I will be based in London with a flair for photography I will send some arty shots of places around London too.
