From Stratford to Harvard

A student from east London says he's in a race against time to take up an offer from one of the world's most prestigious universities. 

Isaiah Wellington-Lynn from Stratford studies at University College London but has been accepted to complete his third year at Harvard University in America. 

But after a scholarship fell through, he says he's now left to try and crowdfund the £64,000 fee. 

We met him along with a mentoring organisation called Loved and Gifted, who say he should be given a chance to inspire others. 

His crowdfunding page is here.
