During my Undergraduate degree I had a tough couple of years that were financially and emotionally difficult.
As I begin my PhD at the University of Melbourne having the financial and emotional support from the Pinnacle Foundation is going to allow me to reach my potential and hopefully light the spark to create a better world for LGBT people.
After the passing of my mum, I quickly learned about the value of helping others. Given my undergraduate background as a HR Major I’m passionate about enhancing the working lives of LGBT people and hope that my research will be able to create not only a better workplace but society for LGBT people. As such Pinnacle isn’t just a scholarship to me but an army of inspiring scholars and family members giving me the ability to deal with anything this PhD has to throw at me.
I feel so privileged grateful and honoured to be on this journey with Pinnacle, my mentor, and fellow scholars.
