Receiving the Pinnacle Scholarship for me is an enormous privilege. I am grateful for the Pinnacle Foundation’s support and encouragement of sexually and gender diverse youth, such as myself.
This scholarship has taken a large amount of financial stress off my shoulders; so that I can be successful in focusing on achieving my goals in tertiary study. The most exciting part of being a Pinnacle Scholar is being guided by a mentor and being surrounded by a community with shared experience. I am thrilled to be starting the year; and look forward to working hard to live up to the values of the Pinnacle Foundation.
