As a CommBank Pinnacle Scholar I am being backed by 2 organizations that have a dedicated interest in the welfare of LGBT+ Australians. This award is an investment in my future – it gives me a lot of confidence to be acknowledged as having the potential to create a positive impact for LGBT+ rights.
The Pinnacle Foundation has opened this door for me, and with their support, I look forward to continuing university education and increasing my involvement in the queer community in 2016. I have a particular interest in raising the awareness of PrEP treatment, and under guidance from a mentor, start discussing diversity in my workplace.
