I am extremely thankful to the Australian Scholarships Foundation and CPA Australia for providing me with this life-changing opportunity. I regularly volunteer my accounting skills to local community groups, who are now able to benefit from my professional development. One community group in particular includes the mental health charity I developed with my husband and close friend, after my husband’s suicide attempt. This opportunity has ensured I possess the skills required to achieve our charity goals of increasing community support, mental health education and awareness for families and suicide survivors.
