The first in her family to go to university, Tanaya has already won a valuable bursary from the Peter Roberts Collab Group of £2,500. In addition, she has is being helped with a grant from the Harpur Trust.
“The funding will help me buy equipment for extra curricular activities and fields trips on my geography course, which I start in September. It will enable me to take some extra steps towards employment in Government where I hope to get a role when I have completed my degree,” said Tanaya.
In the meantime she hopes to set up a YouTube channel sharing her experiences of the course and what she is learning as it unfolds.
