More Info


My name is Ghaith from Syria. Brighton, UK has been my home for the last 5 years.

Life was so interesting for me, with many ups and downs. Back in Syria, I studied computer science and worked in computer security for many years; everything was going really well for me.

War happened; I arrived at the UK in 2016. Many years passed on me without right to work or study and in limbo… however I was so lucky to get accepted for a PhD programme this year to study Cyber security at University of Bristol!

I cannot express how lucky I feel for this opportunity.

The money that I am hoping to raise, will help me to pay first year rent in Bristol. It will also help me with moving costs and to buy books essential to my studies.

I need to move before October as it is when my studies will begin.

One day, I will pay forward this kindness to people in need; I am so thankful for all of you to take the time to read my story and to help me if you can

Thank you
