Natalie’s son Travis, who is now studying medicine at university, says that knowing that other people besides his parents were behind him for his education gave him more drive. “It allowed me to know that if I messed up I was putting my education away, so I wasn't only letting myself down, I was letting other people down as well. So it definitely gave me a strong motivation to try harder and succeed,” he says.
“Without the help of my sponsor I wouldn’t have been able to get into medicine in university, I wouldn’t have been able to move to a better school, and I wouldn’t have been able to continue learning what I want to learn and getting towards a better future, preventing what happened to me happening to my children.”
