I Need Your Help

As some of you might already know, I have chronic anxiety. This causes problems in my life in many ways, one of the biggest being that I can't go to a regular school or college. That's why, from halfway through Year 9 up until the end of Year 11, I attended an online school called InterHigh. It was perfect for me, and the fees weren't a problem because my old school paid them for the entire time I was there.

And I'd like to continue at InterHigh. It's my only option if I want to do A Levels. But my old school can no longer fund my place, and neither I nor my parents can afford the fees.

So, I'm asking you for help. I've never asked any of you for anything like this before, and please trust me when I say that I wouldn't be asking for this unless I needed it.

I need to raise £4,500 in four weeks.

This would cover:

  • The InterHigh school fees for the entire two-year course
  • Entrance fees for each of my exams
  • Other school fees (registration, admin) and textbooks

I don't want anxiety or money to stop me from getting an education, I don't want it to stop me from getting a job and I don't want it to stop me from doing whatever else I want to do in life. Simply put, if I don't raise the money, I can't further my education, and if I can't further my education, I'll struggle later in life. And, to be honest, that thought scares me. 

If you would like to pledge some money to my cause, whether it's £1 or £50, you can do so by clicking here. If you pledge, you'll even get rewards in return! These include but aren't limited to:

  • signed books
  • a handwritten thank-you letter
  • a card and present from me on your birthday
  • the chance to become a guest blogger here for 6 months
  • advertising space for authors and publishers

...and much more. To put this into perspective, if each of my Twitter followers donated just £1, I'd be way over my target. And if you can't donate, please don't worry! There are still things you could do:

  • Share the link on your social media
  • Share the link with your family, friends or anyone you think would be able to help
  • Tweet the link to a celebrity. No harm in trying, right? *cough* Taylor Swift *cough*
  • If you have anything you'd like to offer as a reward, please get in touch as I can add rewards at any time.

Anything you can do would help immensely, and I would be so tremendously grateful.

So, there we go. That's what's going on right now, and I'd really appreciate your support.

Thank you.


  1. Hello! I'd love to help but would like to ask if people not in the UK can donate as well? Sorry if this seems like a silly question!

    1. Hi Ava! Thank you so much for thinking of me! People outside of the UK are now able to donate :)

  2. Of course I'll help out! You deserve it.

  3. I'll see what I can do :)
