Alex (he/him)

Bachelor of Arts


My name is Alex, and I am going into my first year of a Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Melbourne, majoring in International Relations and Politics as well as Psychology.

I am the first member of my family to graduate high school, and the first person to attend university. As a young person living in Melbourne’s West, I have seen the disparity between hard-work and privilege.

My aspiration is to work in public policy, specifically in office as a member of parliament, because I believe that there is a lot of change that could be made to our society, and I want to be part of that change.

I am so grateful to the Cath Leary Social Justice Foundation and The Pinnacle Foundation for providing the funds that make me receiving this scholarship possible – thank you.
