Yianni Marinos




I have so much gratitude and I am extremely humbled to be selected as one out of few people to be receiving the 2017 Pinnacle Foundation scholarship. Living in a society that can be at times daunting for LGBT+ youth, It is refreshing to see organisations such as the Pinnacle Foundation aid queer youth like myself in times of need.
With the bursary I am able to have 100% commitment to studies and achieve academic excellence in a field that I hold close to my heart- nursing. The mentorship program that I have been granted will enable me to find acceptance within myself and develop further my confidence. Thank you, Pinnacle Foundation, again and again for this amazing opportunity to allow myself to become the best person I can be!
