Hi all,

I wanted to tell you that I started looking around for jobs and filled in a few applications. Wish me luck!

I cannot wait to start the new chapter of my life. 😄

I just wanted to update you all on my progress - my course is going well and I will be finishing soon. 🏃

I'm excited by the prospect of a job in the I.T industry!!

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to all my supporters! I felt so overwhelmed with all the donations & amazed to see how kind people are. I start my training course next week with the plan still being to go into full-time IT work in October. I'll let you know how I get on with both training and the job search!

Exciting news!

I enrolled yesterday onto my course, I'm very pleased and I can't wait to start in June.

You know what, you turn on the news, day in day out, and there is nothing but miserable things that people have done in the world. I don’t have a TV for that exact reason. Killings, greed. It is awful.

Then you turn around and on the the other side you see that there is someone who will fund you to do your dream job!

It’s amazing, fascinating, heartwarming.

It’s the most selfless act you can do. You don’t think of it when you give to charity. But you don’t know the impact of your donation to someone else’s life. You are changing their life. Sometimes it’s too much to think about.

I'm speechless! I just put all of my hopes and dreams into a "Save" button when I set my campaign live. Thank you in advance for all of your donations.
