Help me get my legal wings

My name is Angela Powditch, and I’m looking for your help to get my legal wings.

 I’ve been offered a place in the prestigious and highly sought-after international human rights law summer school at Oxford University in the UK in July. I am one of only three Australians who’ve been accepted into this year’s program.

 My challenge? Finding the money to get there. The money raised will cover tuition, accommodation, meals, travel insurance, flights and limited incidentals.

I am a fulltime law student at Southern Cross University and a single mum (with a 3-year-old and 5-year-old). This is the opportunity of a lifetime. I actually liken it to participating in the Olympics, as last year only 69 students from around the world were selected to complete this course and I believe the number is similar this year.... so I am beyond thrilled to have been accepted!!

A bit of background: I am a highly motivated law student who’s been achieving great marks at SCU. I am passionate about my law degree. My dream is to work as an international human rights lawyer. My efforts have not gone unrecognised: last year I was awarded the Far North Coast Law Society scholarship, which was a great honour. The scholarships helped cover the cost of textbooks and a computer.

 Thank you for helping me get my legal wings - I know this opportunity will be a life changer for both me and in turn my children!

I am happy to forward a copy of my Oxford University acceptance letter to verify my claim of acceptance to this course.
