The Women in Leadership Bursary award means to me that being a part of La Trobe isn’t just about being recognised for academic results. There are ALL KINDS OF CLEVER. You can develop leadership skills from all sorts of experiences, whatever your background is. Going to Uni is not just about getting your degree, making some friends and partying with friends. I have gained so much from being a Student Ambassador, Student Facilitator, and Bradford Program Mentor. These roles have transformed my view of Uni – it has been the best time of my life.

I was a bit shocked to hear that I got the scholarship – it’s still sinking in – it will be a great support to help get me through the course, and amazing to be acknowledged in this way. I am glad that I didn’t give up on my dream! Since 2013 I have been working at Shepparton Villages as a Personal Care Worker while completing my Diploma of Nursing at GOTAFE. My ultimate goal was to be a student at La Trobe, doing a Bachelor of Nursing. I deferred mid-way through my Diploma Nursing at GOTAFE - the nurses at work were really encouraging and helped me to overcome my doubts and get through my Diploma in Nursing. I want to see other Indigenous young people in my community, like my younger cousins, motivated to study and go for their goals, and maybe I can be an example for them - that has kept me going when I thought of giving up.
