My nationality is Papua New Guinean and I completed my high school in Nhulunbuy last year. I’m a person who likes to interact with different people from all backgrounds. I’m very approachable and inquisitive. The thing that motivates me is engaging with diverse people. I find everyone in this universe unique, because we all have our own story to share. I’m part of that because I have my own story to express. I’m very thankful for the Aspire Scholarship for the last 3 years of my high school life! Those were the times I was in crisis and in need of financial support. Aspire not only helped me financially, but opened the many pathways and benefits of community support and networking.
I’m now studying TEP (Tertiary Enabling Program) this semester at CDU. This is to help me fill some gaps of schooling I have missed in high school, also to learn subjects that are related to university skills. Next semester my aim is to be accepted into Nursing. I’m certain I will be accepted because I’m motivated to pass this program. My goal for this semester is to pass all my units, so I can get into Nursing. Things that motivate me are diverse learning from different people however in this position, I think someone who motivating me now is myself, I’m learning, being open and accepting challenges to motivate me to continue.
