‘Technology is an integral part of university life, so I am grateful the scholarship has enabled me to purchase a computer and I can continue writing my assignments. The support has made me feel even more motivated to continue in my degree.’
To everyone who has donated to the Matthew Flinders Scholarship, Kyriaki says, ‘I cannot thank the donors enough for this support.
‘It takes a special kind of person to donate their own money for the benefit of other people. I hope they realise how much each and every student appreciates the assistance.’
With renewed motivation, Kyriaki now plans to graduate in the middle of the year and go straight back to the classroom – working as a primary school teacher.
She also has her sights set on becoming a leader in education.
‘My ultimate goal would be to get a position in leadership in a school, as a wellbeing leader,
and eventually become a principal.’
