I'm Mallory - a deticated dreamer, owl-lover and adventure-seeker constantly trying to get myself one step ahead for the future. I grew up in a small country town in North Carolina. With the thick accents, strong smell of BBQ and beautiful landscapes, this was the place of dreams for some but for me there was always something missing. I dreamed of being the next big author or creating a massive campaign remembered for decades despite it's simplicity. That's when I discovered a marketing degree in England. What better place to write and create than the homeland of the English language (and afternoon tea!)? From the high reputation of the degree itself to the opportunity to take on a placement year in the industry, this was by far the biggest adventure I could ever take to get myself where I needed to be for the future. I moved to the UK in 2012 to study Marketing & Communications where I've been ever since, working my placement year at Adobe Systems Europe Limited in the UK region and now at a top 100 marketing agency, I've never been more certain this path is right for me. Trying to get as much experience in as I can from all of these opportunities that have arisen from my time studying in the UK, the visa I'm living on only allows 20 hour of work per week. At £6.30/hour, this will ot pay off living costs, let alone tuition!
To get to this point in my education, I've taken out loans cosigned by a loving family member who is no longer able to help. As a desperate, last resort for making sure my hardwork and dedication to graduate in 2015 is seen through, I am asking you, friends and strangers, to help me raise the amount to survive my final year.
If you would be willing to invest anything from 2p up towards my final year, I'd be forever greatful.
