Getting the scholarship was one of the most exciting things to happen to me in years. Every subject, every module enriches my knowledge and I can see how it can be applied to my day-to-day work. I can definitely see the difference in my decision-making process and the way I see accounting practice now. The fact that the CPA Program is flexible allows me to use a self-paced approach which has helped me maintain a balance between my personal, work and academic life; being able to be a mum, worker and student all at the same time – who would have thought this would be possible? I’m looking forward to the next subject and being challenged with the other modules CPA Australia has to offer. I’m extremely grateful for CPA Australia and the Australian Scholarships Foundation giving me the opportunity to expand my horizons and help people through my work.
