I’ll never forget the feeling of absolute awe and disbelief when I found out I had been selected as a 2014 Pinnacle Scholar. It is such an honour and a privilege, and for me it is life changing. As an activist and a young member of the LGBT+ community I have so many visions for the future, and with the help of Pinnacle and my mentor I can strive to achieve my goals and help make the world a better place for young people struggling with their identity and sexuality. I am so thankful for this opportunity and am looking forward to a fantastic year of learning and experience ahead.
