My name is Lindsay Farman, I'm 19 years old and I come from West London.
After finishing my A levels, I decided to take a gap year to do some traveling, charity work and paid work to contribute towards my studies. After a couple of nerve-wracking months, a meticulously compiled portfolio and a somewhat shaky interview, my dream has come true! I have been accepted to study architecture at the prestigious Bartlett School of Architecture at UCL.
Creativity and design are my number one priorities and I cannot tell you how much I am looking forward to starting my studies. There will be plenty of challenges to say the least, but with one-to-one tutorials with my design tutor and an emphasis on creativity, I know I could not possibly manage to get my career off to a better start.
However, London, as always, is expensive. I want to be able to devote myself as fully as possible to my course and to limit part-time jobs to the summer holidays, if possible. I have worked extremely hard to get to this point, having given it my all. With my student loan and savings from working last year, I am hoping to scrape by. However, in order to fully dedicate myself and not to have to worry about each and every penny, I would like to raise the sum of £3,000. This extra cash will pay for my travel season ticket and study materials, without both of which my time and experiences at the Bartlett would be extremely hindered.

A new chapter in my life is about to start, please help make my studies that little bit easier by allowing me to fully devote myself to them. This chance is all I have ever wanted and I know that this is the best way forward.
Thanks for your help and generosity.
