USC Graduate (Bachelor of Nursing Science) and previous Starfish recipient
As a single mother of two young girls I attended the University of the Sunshine Coast as a full time student studying a Bachelor of Nursing Science. During my degree I was also working part time as the sole provider for my children. The USC Starfish program was a life line.
The generosity of the program afforded me the opportunity to decrease my working hours, therefore allowing me more time to devote to study. The Starfish program allowed me to concentrate on my study, leading to a higher GPA. My GPA and results led to a job as a Registered Nurse here on the Sunshine Coast. Thank you to everyone who supports this program, trust me it makes a huge impact.
