THE parents of a popular uni student who jumped to her death after leaving gifts for her family, have shared her tragic suicide note one year on.

Madison Holleran, 19, committed suicide in Philadelphia in January 2014 because she was overwhelmed by her intense Ivy League schoolwork.

The University of Pennsylvania student left a note which her dad has only now shared to help people battling depression.

“I thought how unpleasant it is to be locked out, and I thought how it is worse perhaps to be locked in,” Madison wrote in her note left alongside presents for her family.

“For you mom ... the necklaces ... For you, Nana & Papa ... Gingersnaps (always reminds me of you) ... For you Ingrid ... The Happiness Project. And Dad ... the Godiva chocolate truffles. I love you all ... I’m sorry. I love you.”

Holleran’s tragic death caused shock waves in her home town of New Jersey as she was a gifted track star and regularly shared optimistic pictures and messages on social media.

The teen’s heartbroken father, 62-year-old Jim Holleran, said he shared his daughter’s suicide note a year after her death as a cautionary tale for families in a similar position.

“I don’t think she realised how awful it would be for us to not have her around,“ Mr Holleran toldPeople magazine.

“Parents, if you see a huge change in your child and you haven’t discussed suicide with them, open that discussion up.”

He said his daughter was such a perfectionist, she left a first draft of the suicide note in her dorm room.

“I don’t know who I am anymore. trying. trying. trying,” the note said. “I’m sorry. I love you ... sorry again ... sorry again ... sorry again ... How did this happen?’
