I like to tell stories and create the worlds they live in. I am a studying artist and designer in Wollongong, Australia. For me the Pinnacle Foundation scholarship and mentorship is a chance to make my art and design study more accessible and serves as means to connect with my community – the LGBT+ community through mentoring relationships, the people I meet and experiences I have as a member of the Pinnacle family. I understand what Pinnacle stands for in helping LGBT+ youth, these values resonate with my perspective. I see a better future in a society that communicates about broader identity and tells more stories about how normal it is, to be a little different. With the help of a professional mentor and the financial aid that the scholarship provides, I am better prepared for my journey to find my passion and make a difference in our ever-changing society.
