I talked myself out of applying for a scholarship 3 years in a row because I thought I wasn’t queer enough or disadvantaged enough. It wasn’t until I was about to start my final year that I decided I truly needed it and now I’m here and cursing my past self for being so worried all of those years.
I am so incredibly grateful to have been welcomed into this beautiful, diverse Pinnacle family. The financial support will get me through my final year of study and that is just wonderful but what I am truly grateful for, and what I really didn’t expect, is the chance to be connected with such an inspiring group of humans from across the country. The Pinnacle Foundation are just a truly spectacular organisation and I am so proud to be one of their 2018 scholars.
