Weʼre raising £1,800 to help me get my British Citizenship. The only citizenship I'll have as a refugee. I'm doing a PhD and am struggling to fund my citizenship.
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 arrived in UK in 2010 as a refugee from Iran. I've cut contact with my abusive family. Life has been very difficult. Despite all that I've done a masters degree in biomedical engineering and now am doing a phd in artificial intelligence. I'm grateful to the country for this opportunity. I'm hoping that I'll return the favour to the country as a graduate working to build a better world. Since I've been here for 8 years now I can apply for a citizenship, the only citizenship I'll ever have. I'll give me safety and security and a sense of relief, something I've not had much off so far. At the moment is really hard for me to fund my application, you don't get much as a phd student. So I'll really appreciate the help of you lovely generous people.
