I'm trying to raise money to cover the first year of a course at University. I have struggled with mental health issues such as suicidal thoughts and inability to realise what I want to do with my life.
I started a course doing Technical Game Development in 2017. I did this because I felt like it would give my life a direction however it only exacerbated issues as I was forcing myself to do something I didn't want to on the basis that it would make others happy. This caused me to relapse and withdraw myself from my course, my work and most importantly my friend and family. I failed the first year and had to repeat which I passed, however the university has launched it's Journalism course with a specific focus on the games industry which is the area I wanted to work in and why I was at university.
However as I forced myself to finish the first year and repeat of the first year I will be unable to cover the tuition fee for the first year of my course. I have always been writing in my spare time from a young age and the game industry is a big part of who I am and I would nothing more than to be able to help show the good they can do for the world.
