#InMyShoes: Mel Ramsay - Affording Education

Mel is a 24-year-old from just outside of Liverpool. She tells us about her start in life and about how she ran away from home when she was just 15.

She never thought she'd be able to continue on to university but thanks to many different schemes in place, she's been able to afford it. She is worried for future generations that wont have the opportunity to further education because of schemes which may no longer exist. Plus, she talks about how important it is that young people should vote.

Mel is part of BBC Generation 2015, visit their website for more information.
