MBA Residential Units - Deakin University (2013)

ASF granted me the opportunity to attend the Deakin University’s MBA Residential Unit, ‘Audacious Leadership.' This intensive unit was aboard a tall ship sailing from Sydney to Hobart, where students are challenged to extend themselves in leadership by challenging and audacious situations.The experience I gained from attending this unit, sponsored by ASF was life changing; the knowledge of how I function in leadership was benefitted by experiences that replaced a fear of failure with the ability to be courageous, even audacious, in facing the challenges that come my way. I could of have attended this life transforming unit if not for the Scholarship I gained from the Australian Scholarship Foundation. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
