The financial support I have received from The Cross Trust has been invaluable. At the start of the year, with the pandemic in full swing, the idea of moving to a new place, and being at University with an incredibly shrunk list of jobs and opportunities available, was anxiety-inducing at best.

However due to the support I received I could focus on engaging in my studies in a relaxed, productive manner in order to complete the rigorous coursework. This year I have therefore truly applied myself to studying and learning from renowned leaders in my future industry and have gained confidence in the world of technology that will take me beyond my university years.

I cannot thank The Cross Trust enough for affording me these luxuries and for all the work the Trust does for students like myself.
