The support the Pinnacle Foundation has given me is immeasurable. The financial aspect of the scholarship has allowed me to focus on my degree and mental health in a way that I definitely wouldn’t have been able to otherwise and has made my life so much easier.

The biggest impact it has had on me though is the feeling of community and connectedness. Coming from a small country town I have never had the opportunity to have a network of people around me that are so accepting and understanding of me. Being surrounded by such unapologetic queerness has given me so much more confidence in myself and who I really am. Thank you Pinnacle, you have done so much for me, and for many other young people.
