I feel incredibly grateful and lucky to receive a scholarship from The Pinnacle Foundation. Having a group of people recognise how important my education is to me and taking me on as a Scholar means a tremendous amount.
The financial assistance for educational expenses and equipment will break down some of the difficulties associated with studying and will provide me with the best opportunity for success. The Pinnacle Foundation’s support means I can focus on my studies as my first priority, instead of worrying about financial constraints to purchase textbooks and equipment required for classes. Also, to be mentored by a successful LGBT+ identified person who is working in a discipline I am interested in, really creates confidence and provides an invaluable experience. This scholarship will enable me to succeed with my goals and has shown me that hard work and perseverance pays off. I’m very much looking forward to getting started with my course and mentor. Thank you so much to The Pinnacle Foundation for creating such a fantastic opportunity for the LGBT+ community.
