I am deeply honoured to be a 2018 Pinnacle Scholar. For the first time in my studies, I am able to focus on working toward the best possible grades without financial barriers. Unfortunately, here in WA, it is still difficult to be a trans person at university, but I know I have the support of the Pinnacle family behind me when I face challenges.
I am so glad to have connected with a community of other young LGBTQIA+ scholars from across the country, and an industry mentor who has been so willing to offer guidance and industry connections. I am so much closer to a career in my dream industry than I could ever have had without the Pinnacle Foundation’s support.
