I am 23 years old and live in Lavender Hill, Retreat with my parents and three siblings.

When I was in my second year, my parents divorced and soon after my father, the sole provider for our family moved out.

I am the first to access tertiary education from both my mother and father’s side of the family and I will be the first of all my cousins to graduate with a tertiary qualification.

A higher education qualification will mean a great deal for me and my family. Two years ago I embarked on a mission and started with the Higher Certificate in Community Counselling knowing very well my end goal would be a degree in Psychology. My dream will soon be realised.
