Creating New Opportunities – Natasha’s Story


Natasha: So my upbringing was a little bit different to the average person. Me and my brothers we moved around to a lot of refuges. And growing up with a lot of different experiences just to do with like violence and that kind of thing. I’m Natasha and I’m studying a Bachelor of Psychology at the University of Newcastle. I think there was a reason that I had a kind of rough childhood. It… it made me who I am and definitely made me strong and really self aware and self-motivated. Taking care of my brothers has made us closer as a family. They look up to me like a mum basically and I just want them to make something of themselves. And really get somewhere in life. And I believe like University does that. The one thing I wanted to do in life is help people. And psychology is about understanding people’s minds and then I can understand why they do things. I’d just like to say to the donors that I’m really thankful for their support. It helped in a lot of ways. I didn’t have a lot of that growing up so that was a really positive thing. Scholarships make a really big difference to people’s lives.
