I am a 23 year old graduate currently in part time work who will be going to study a postgraduate course (not a masters) in September 2018. I specialized in web and graphic design on my BA but because overall it was a media course I have found it hard to get a graduate job even with internships and freelancing whilst working. I have decided that a more specific postgraduate course will help me with my skills and help me to get a job in the future. Unfortunately, I have no family to help me as I am a care leaver, meaning that I used to be in foster care due to my father passing away and my mother being too unwell to look after myself and my siblings. I am passionate about the environment, female empowerment, mental health awareness, veganism and pop culture and would love to incorporate these interests into my designs.

Although I will try to have a part time job whilst I am studying, I will need significant financial help as I have no one I can rely on in my family and I cannot get student finance as they only support specific postgraduate courses. 

Thank you for your interest and every little bit helps!
