Our Curtin Cares artwork
This artwork was created to celebrate and thank our staff donor community for all that they make possible. This artwork was designed by Kariyarra and Nyikina woman, Curtin staff member and graduate, Rickiesha Deegan. It is about the act of giving – how the small impact of a single action can create ripples in the lives of others and their communities.
Rickiesha creates art to express her culture, explore her identity, and empower other First Nations to be proud. She hopes to be a part of changing the narrative of this country and what it is to be Aboriginal.
“The hardest thing for me is meeting the financial obligations I have with a part-time wage, and now with study obligations such as parking fees, text books and electronic devices. I almost withdrew from a unit because of some family issues I was experiencing but pushed on and received support from Student Wellbeing and was granted an extra extension. If I had not been granted the scholarship, I believe I would have withdrawn. Because Curtin saw something in me, I decided to push through my anxiety and fear and battle on.”
Sandra Rickards, Bachelor of Social Work, Curtin Staff Funded Scholarship recipient
“I am the child of refugees who came to Australia to flee war-torn Afghanistan. Both my parents are illiterate, and I can see their everyday struggle through my own eyes. Education is critical to me because it gives me hope for a better tomorrow.”
Aref Nazary, Bachelor of Science (Health, Safety and Environment), Curtin Staff Funded Scholarship recipient
“I had to move from Busselton to Perth to study the degree I wanted. I think sometimes it is underestimated what a huge upheaval and financial strain it is to leave your home and town at 18 years of age to study.”
Caitlin Debelec, Bachelor of Science (Nursing), Curtin Staff Funded Scholarship recipient
“I am a single Mum to my nine-year-old daughter Rosie. It is only now that she is old enough to understand the importance of education that I can finally pursue my studies – she is my biggest fan and cheerleader. I cried tears of joy when I found out I was selected to be a (scholarship) recipient”.
Stephanie Jewell, Bachelor of Science (Psychology) & Bachelor of Commerce (Human Resources Management and Industrial Relations), Curtin Staff Funded Scholarship recipient
“My father told me only after my Go Global placement that he initially did not have sufficient funds to support my placement in Shanghai. He did not bring this up to me for fear that I would give up this amazing opportunity – when I got the scholarship and informed him, he was visibly overjoyed.”
Debbi Lim Wan Yu, Bachelor of Physiotherapy, Go Global Scholarship recipient
“I am a single Mum of two amazing boys; I run a small business; and I study full-time. I’ve wanted to come to university for many years and I’m so happy and grateful to be able to fulfil my dream – ever since I was a little girl, I’ve always wanted to be a health professional. Thank you so much for giving me this scholarship. It has not only affected me, but my children and family too.”
Julie Mullins, Bachelor of Science (Nursing), Curtin Staff Funded Scholarship recipient
