First Students Entering the Final Stages of University Degree Completion
It’s hard to believe that our 3 Sydney-based Scholars are already halfway through the final year of their degrees. They have had a busy and challenging semester with learning and exams online as the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic continues. Each young woman is beginning to focus on their areas of interest and developing their understanding and skills for their future careers.
Linet, who is studying Information Technology at Western Sydney University has developed a passion for cybersecurity and successfully managed a very heavy workload to ensure she developed her skills in this area. In Sharon’s Medical Sciences degree at UTS she studied neuroscience and completed a laboratory-based internship to build her skills. While Peyian (Science & Liberal Arts, U. Sydney) focused on three Chemistry subjects in pursuit of her aspiration to become an Analytical Chemist. We are proud of the determination they have shown while pursuing their goals.
Cynthia, our fourth and newest international student began studying Nursing at UTS in February while still living in Nairobi. She has been waiting, since December for her Australian visa to be granted. Undeterred by the challenges of attending lectures from 2 -7 am, 3 days each week in Nairobi, she achieved a distinction and a high distinction in her first 2 subjects.
Women for Change wish to congratulate each of these 4 young women.
