Science/Engineering (Hons) (Telecommunications)


Being awarded a Pinnacle scholarship for 2015 has done a great deal to help me achieve my ambitions of tertiary education whilst also providing the social and emotional support of a mentor in my chosen field of study. This scholarship has allowed me to discover and explore Uni life without the stress of study related expenses such as textbooks and equipment, as well as provided continued motivation and opportunity to advocate for LGBT+ issues and rights that I believe in. The Pinnacle Foundation’s support has meant that I now have the resources to achieve my dreams and for that I am truly grateful.
