USC Graduate (Bachelor of Nursing Science) and previous Starfish recipient
I moved to the coast to leave domestic violence, a single mum with two small girls, not knowing what I was going to do. Nursing was something that I had always been interested in but life went in a different direction. I was eventually able to study nursing full-time because the USC community provided me with a bursary.
Without this support I would still be trying to do my degree now or I might have had to drop out altogether. I'd like to say thank you to everyone who has supported USC students. You've helped me to be where I am and now it's my turn to give back to the community through my work as an emergency nurse.
