Hello! My name is Kieran Henderson and I am a 3rd year Law & Business student at Maynooth University. I am delighted to have been selected for the 100 minds programme and I will devote all my resources to ensure that my opportunity is a successful one.

First and foremost, I know what it is like to grow up with sickness in the family, my younger cousin has suffered with a very serious heart condition his entire life. Over the years he has constantly been in and out of hospital, he’s had multiple life-threatening situations where extensive surgery has been required. Myself and my family are extremely grateful for the wonderful treatment my cousin has received. However, in recent years hospital resources have been stretched to the bare minimum, for example not having enough staff present at one time, not having a bed for a sick person who needs it etc. The money myself and others chosen can raise could make such a big difference. It could be the difference between a life gained and a life lost.

From a personal aspect I have been very fortunate to have a good upbringing surrounded by the best family and friends a person could ask for. They have always been there for me when I needed them. Also in school I had many great teachers who served as great role models. They inspired me to push myself out of my comfort zone and take on new challenges of all shapes and sizes. I attend college through the SUSI grant, which has been essential in allowing me to achieve my dream of going to university. I also qualified for the HEAR scheme which has offered me vital supports and has eased my transition to third-level education. Having had all of these fantastic supports for so long I feel now is my time to give back as much as I can.
