For a long time, I didn’t know anyone else who was trans like me. I felt isolated, and alone.
This is why I am so excited to be a part of the Pinnacle Foundation family. I have met such a wonderful bunch of LGBTIQ+ young people who are passionate about life and reaching their full potential.
It is assuring to know that there is a program that supports young Queer Australians in pursuing their dreams – giving us access to resources we would not have had otherwise. And, on a more personal level, it means so much to me to know that there are others like me.
I would like to use this Scholarship to help me through my Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of Melbourne. In the years to come, I would like to continue generating awareness surrounding the trans community, specifically young people, in the hope that one day trans and gender diverse young people will grow up feeling loved and supported, rather than isolated and alone.
Thank you, Pinnacle Foundation, for your support and generosity.
