Passport and visa

Italy

By awarding me the Frank Brake Scholarship, LSBU has lightened my financial burden allowing me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning. Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals and dreams, just as I have been helped.

Sarah Mancini, MSc Food Safety and Control

Sarah also said: "My dream is to eventually become a food safety manager in a leading company. Now I am one step closer to achieving this and my family is very proud of me."
