I intend to use the Asia-Pacific Community Award to inspire fellow young Australians to devote some of their time and energy to communities in need. Winning this award has been an incredible source of encouragement to myself, my personal endeavours and my career aspirations. For me, 2010 was a year of challenges and struggles, but in the midst of it all, being recognised by Golden Key for helping others has been exceedingly rewarding. With this Scholarship Award, I would like to donate $500 to Optometry Giving Sight, the charity of choice of the Optometrists Association of Australia.
