Alumni Update

Today you have the power to do something remarkable

Every student who comes to UniSA has a unique journey ahead of them. They are tomorrow’s nurses, teachers and engineers, and they come from every corner of the globe and all walks of life to pursue their dreams. As each student strives toward their hopes and ambitions for the future, many have personal hurdles to overcome.

Students like Michelle, who was urged to study a Bachelor of Social Work by her amputee doctor as he knew she could make a positive difference in people’s lives. Michelle believes her disability and living through a traumatic childhood will help her to influence others to also be the best they can be. Following graduation, she hopes to inspire Aboriginal children in Adelaide’s northern areas to reach their potential.

Hear Michelle’s story, including how receiving a scholarship gave her the encouragement she needed to embark on a brighter future.

Scholarships are also helping international students like Suliana, who is using the knowledge gained during her Bachelor of Clinical Exercise Physiology degree to tackle the world’s obesity crisis. Suliana was initially motived to study because of her family’s history in type 2 diabetes, obesity and hypertension which affects her father, cousins and grandparents. As a Muay Thai boxing champion, she knows just how important exercise is for the health and wellbeing of her local community.

Moving from a small country town to Adelaide to attend university was a big adjustment for Rosheen. Rosheen grew up in a rural area and always loved maths and science. Often finding herself the only female in class, she decided to study to become a science teacher. Rosheen intends on moving back to a rural location so she can inspire the next generation of STEM students. She believes that donating to student scholarships is an investment in the future of our society.
