What were the benefits to you in being a 2017 NCWQ bursary recipient?

I am an external student and my university is 1000km’s away. The bursary funds gave me the opportunity to travel to my university for compulsory study purposes.

What are your goals for this year?

2018 brings the final year of my nursing studies, and I am hoping to find a position at my local hospital which complements both my career aspirations and my family situation.

Who have been your most significant woman role models?

I am almost at the end, so keep positive & study!

Who have been your most significant woman role models?

I would have to say the most important would be my mother. Although she is no longer with us, she always made sure her children were happy, while she was doing things which made her happy.
