Fundraising: Self Funded At 21

Help Christiana Adekunle raise money for her tuition fee.  She has launched a  fundraising page to raise fund for her uni fees as she is not entitled to student loan or finance. She is currently in a situation where she needs your help.

I have completed 2 years of my three-year programme and am now waiting to start my final year in September. With fees at £9710 a year, it has been a huge struggle finding the money to get this far, whilst also working zero hours contracts and juggling university work. I spent a couple of months prior to starting the course trying to piece together cash and applying for scholarships. I have applied twice for article 21 scholarship and have been refused on both occasions, and I am not eligible to get student loan and student finance due to my status in the country. Unfortunately, due to the rigorous time at school and work, I found myself out of work (with no notice) over the summer of 2017.This has caused a major setback regarding paying for my fees for this year as I was required to put some of the funding I’d received towards assisting my parents with living expenses and utility bills. Since becoming a student and requiring part time work to sustain myself, I have been forced to work as “self-employed”. I am currently running a design business, creating graphic content such as logos, flyers, posters, much more. However, the income receive from the business only plays a small part in clearing my outstanding fees.
