Graduate Certificate in Social Impact - Bankwest Foundation / Centre for Social Impact UWA (2019)

In addition, I am delighted and honoured to have received the Julie Michael Memorial Award Prize. It is thanks to the generosity of scholarships and awards donors that I have been able to benefit through the gift of education.
