This student was given a one off grant to purchase a laptop

I am a nineteen year old student living at home with my Aunty and twin sister. I currently have an unconditional offer to study accountancy at Liverpool Hope University which I will start September 2015. I studied my A levels at North Liverpool Academy, studying Maths, Business and Economics. 
I chose to study accountancy at university because I have an interest in numbers. I enjoy maths and problem solving which is a main part of accountancy. I also took part in work experience at KPMG, working within the tax department giving me an insight into the kind of things I would be learning to do. The work experience confirmed my choice of career and made me more confident of making the right choices for my future.

I have a part time job working as a warehouse assistant for a cash and carry where I will continue working during my time at university. 

The money which I have been awarded by the trust will benefit me in so many ways. Firstly it will help me financially as although I have a job which means that I have regular money coming in I don't want to work all the time. I want to experience everything I can at university and do well and working a lot would stop me from doing this. I will get a lot of support from home but coming from a single parent family, receiving the award will take some of the pressure off my aunty. The award will also help me socially. Although I do live in Liverpool I plan to move into halls, staying at home would benefit me more but being a shy person, moving out now will help me experience things I wouldn't if I stayed at home, such as making friends and enjoying university.

During my free time I enjoy music, I play the flute where I am part of a marching band therefore during my time at university I would want to take part in music groups. 

I am very appreciative of the trust for awarding me this money which will be used to purchase a laptop as I currently do not have one. I cannot wait to start my journey through university.
