Congratulations to Dr Yalimay Jimenez, who recently graduated from Curtin with a PhD in chemistry."When my oldest child was three years old, he was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder," says Yalimay. "At the time I was one unit away from taking my doctoral exams in Venezuela but I could barely manage to work due to the number of therapies my son had to go to. Our family was my number one priority. I decided to withdraw from this degree."Years later, my husband and I could not deal with the economic and humanitarian crisis in our home country anymore. We planned to move to Australia; we worked hard... we persevered. My husband said to me, 'now is your time.' He did all he could to support my dream. He is my best friend and my biggest ally."I have no regrets about my PhD journey. I was more mature, did it in my second language, and in a research group that pursues excellence. All the challenges I faced and overcame - it was worth it!"Yalimay is now working as an exploration geochemist but plans to continue her education and publish her Masters thesis while gaining further experience as a data scientist in the environmental and mineral industries.👏 Thank you for sharing your story 👏Tag a #CurtinGrad with an incredible story in the comments and we may feature them on our page!📷 Photo of Yalimay Jimenez and her family at her graduation ceremony, supplied by Yalimay.#CurtinGrad #PhD #education #learning #chemistry #geology #geologist #scientist #inspiring #Venezuela #student

We have more wonderful news to share about the Carrolup Centre for Truth-telling.While we continue our efforts to generate more funding for a permanent home to house the unique drawings made by the children held at Carrolup, we have repurposed some space in the @johncurtingallery for an interim exhibition called ‘Carrolup Coolingah Wirn’, meaning ‘the spirit of Carrolup children’.The exhibition opened on 5 November exclusively to the Nyungar community, in a moving experience that saw many memories relived and important truths revealed. The exhibition opened to the general public last night. We will keep this space refreshed with new exhibitions until the Centre’s physical home becomes a reality. Find out more via the link in our bio.Our supporters have helped make this possible. Thank you for joining us on our journey to reconciliation and we look forward to welcoming you and your family to the Gallery to experience Carrolup Coolingah Wirn.📷 Ezzard Flowers and Kathleen Toomath at opening event, 5 Nov 2021.

Say hi to Sarah Greening! She graduated last year with a degree in Creative Advertising and Graphic Design and now works for Deloitte Digital. She hopes her story will inspire new graduates to reach for the stars."You will only get out as much as you put in. While studying I completed two internships and stepped into four different freelancing roles, while studying full-time and working part-time. Fast forward two years, and these experiences have given me never-ending opportunities for growth."My degree from Curtin was so much more than a piece of paper. It showed how much I had overcome in my personal life and represents all the times I felt like my life was in shambles, or it seemed like the world was against me - only to get through it all in the end."Now, my goal is to make an impact on the 'little guys'. I get a huge rush out of making the average Joe's day a little easier and brighter. I'm so grateful to have a job where I get to give back to the community by improving human experiences and providing innovative solutions to everyday problems."Congratulations to all our new graduates who finished their studies last month!Never miss a graduate story or opportunity - update your details with us today via the link in our bio!#CurtinGrad #advertising #creative #graphicdesign #graduate #inspiration #inspiring #motivation
