Get Brenda to University

My name is Brenda and I am currently in year 13 at Ark Globe Academy. I am hoping to begin studying History and Economics at UCL this year and I am predicted to achieve A*A*A, but due to my 'leave to remain' status running out in 3 days I may be unable to.  I have been here since I was 3 but still don’t have indefinite status and I am currently in the process of reapplying. However, this requires a lot of money and with my mum not being eligible for public funds, not raising the total amount may mean I would have to apply to university as an international student, which isn't financially possible for me to do.

Growing up in a low income area and household, I have always been interested in inequality and its causes, as well as its solutions and I plan to go into international development in the future, so I can begin tackling this very issue that I am faced with.

I have to raise the money by 20th March and although I know it's extremely late notice, I’d be so grateful if you could donate anything you could to help me in raising this finance. I can't promise to pay it back, but I can promise to go onto university and make a change in this world - I just need a helping hand for now.
