I am a teenager from Sierra Leone, who grew up in a charity organisation called the Craig Bellamy foundation academy which is aimed at nurturing talented footballers across the Country, I have recently finished college at hartpury college in the U.K., I finished with the grades D*DD.
The Craig Bellamy foundation is now closed which leaves us no where but to explore option for ourselves, so I really want to have the opportunity to be able to go university get my degree in sport business management to one day return back home and help improve sport in the country and give the less priveldege kids out there the opportunity to be able to involve in any sport they want.
I grew up in the southern part of Sierra Leone which is a place struck by poverty and low standard of living, because of that I haven't got anyone in my family that have gone university so I want to break that bond to be the first one to do so.
Will really appreciate if you can help me out with making my dreams come true of getting a degree here in the U.K. Which is something I have always dreamt off, to return back home and make my family and country proud.
Thanks for your help and it surely will make a different in my life.
