It is both an honour and a privilege to been named a 2018 Pinnacle Foundation scholar. Foundations like Pinnacle are changing the lives of young LGBT+ people, like myself, across Australia. My scholarship will substantially lessen the financial burden of university study, thereby allowing me to fully dedicate myself to my studies and clinical placements over the coming year. Moreover, I am confident that the academic and emotional support of my mentor will prove invaluable as I pursue my dream career of Sports Physiotherapy. As the country continues to strive for equality, it is exciting to know that foundations like Pinnacle are having such positive impacts on young LGBT+ peoples’ lives.
