Weʼre raising £10,000 to Help fund my second and third year of my Doctorate in Forensic Psychology.
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 am just finishing my first year of my Doctorate and need the extra funds to put towards my second year.
Finishing the course would mean I would become a qualified psychologist and something I have been slowly working my way towards for the last 15 years.
This year's Fee has been swallowed up by an expensive court case in relation to my daughter. Funding this has not been an option for me.
The journey this far has not been easy but the struggle has been worth it. As a lone parent of a much longed for child I have wanted to develop myself into the best role model I possibly could be. Feeling like it is just us, I dream of providing us with the security of securing a profession and eventually working in a field that helps other people, much in the same way that people have helped me.
