Crowdfunder is working with 3DCentre, a charity that empowers and mentors the younger generation to set them on the kind of career path that changes the world – particularly human rights, climate action and economic injustice.

Just this year, four young adults, Ella, Clara, Astrid and Emily, have been working with 3DCentre on Post Mortem project and Shaken Baby Syndrome supporting those who have been failed by the legal processes in the US justice system.

From the 5th April to the 27th April 2022, I will be running 5k every day - bringing it to a total of 5k a day for 22 days (just for context - it has been roughly two years since I last ran 5k!) This is to raise money for a trip to Mississippi this summer to work on Tasha's case on the ground.

During the month of April 2022, I will be walking several challenging routes around Dorset, London and Durham to raise money to be able to go to Mississippi this summer to work on the case of Tasha Shelby. Tasha Shelby was wrongfully convicted of capital murder in 2000 and has been imprisoned ever since.

"Thanks to my dad’s fantastic music taste, I grew up listening to Pink Floyd. Whether it was his intention or not, this is one of the reasons I have always felt a need to question those in positions of power; and, of course, the so-called ‘justice’ system.

I have had the opportunity to explore this further during my Human Rights Law Master’s at the University of Bristol, which has made me more determined to fulfil a career in human rights."

As the fourth and final year of my engineering degree drew to a close in London, it occurred to me that I would like to dedicate the next chapter of my life to tackling more socially relevant problems.

With this in mind, I reached out to human rights attorney Clive Stafford-Smith and embarked on the Dead Innocents Project alongside researchers from around the world.
