Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
I was diagnosed with HMS (hypermobility syndrome) when I was 14 and this was confirmed again after I was 16 so that I could still get the support I needed during exams. HMS effects my life constantly, it means that often I am unable to walk very far, I have chronic fatigue, my joins dislocate very easily, and I have to constantly be mindful and work my life around it.
On top of this, I am also dyslexic which means I regularly have to work twice as hard as those around me to find ways to understand information.
Despite these setbacks, I have just graduated from university with a 2.1 degree and I passionately want to pursue a career in law. For me to do this, I feel that my best option is to do a GDL which is not a government funded course.
I am raising money therefore to help me towards the cost of the course and also to support my extra expenses as a disabled person.
