LSE alumna Chrisann Jarrett is the founder of Let Us Learn, an initiative to help young migrants access higher education, and is a policy advisor with the Greater London Authority.
Your own personal experience inspired you to set up Let us Learn. What kind of support does the organisation offer?
I created Let Us Learn to support young migrants who are blocked from taking up their places at university because they do not qualify for student finance – young people who, like I was, are regarded as international students despite having lived in the UK most of their lives.
I was very fortunate to receive a New Futures Fund scholarship to study at LSE, but realised there would be many others in my same situation who wouldn’t have that opportunity.
