Moving from Regional Queensland and undertaking a Bachelor of Laws/Bachelor of Commerce degree, there are many expected emotional and financial adversities which will arise. Being awarded a Pinnacle Foundation Scholarship will enable me to focus on my studies, by easing foreseeable financial hardships. Furthermore, having the emotional support and guidance from a mentor will add to my support network and allow me to excel while undertaking tertiary education.
I wish to thank the Pinnacle Foundation for creating an environment to support LGBT+ people in their endeavours, as too many would not be able to achieve their potential without Pinnacle’s support. Moreover, being awarded this scholarship will give me the opportunity to fulfill my academic goals, as well as benefit from continued personal growth and become a better member of the LGBT+ community.
