Megan: A reward for all my hard work

The scholarship meant a lot for my confidence and self-esteem, and it felt like a reward for all my hard work. It recognised all of my efforts in VCE and my community service. It has opened up so many opportunities to me that would not have otherwise been available, and has started to shape my career and have had a big influence on my personal goals and motivations. In 10 years, I hope to be either practicing in criminal law, family law or personal injury. I hope to be able to work pro bono matters to give back to the community.
