Double Celebration for Ken & Lenka Morgan Scholarship

Double Celebration a First for Ken & Lenka Morgan Scholarship

Bruno is a young man with a plan to change the world as a bio-medical Nano technician. Tahilia, a young woman with a mission to be the best youth worker she can be and an advocate for indigenous children.

With a shared desire to help people and to give back, Bruno and Tahilia now share the title of Ken & Lenka Morgan Scholarship recipient for the 2018 academic year.

Delighted to meet these two inspiring young people, Lenka Morgan was on hand to congratulate Bruno and Tahilia at a special celebration event held in November 2017.

Bruno’s family received a Kids Under Cover studio in 2008. He recently moved to Melbourne from regional Victoria to study nanotechnology at university. Moving to Melbourne to study full time is a huge step for him and one which will open some exciting new doors.

With the support of the scholarship, Bruno will register for a Nanotechnology Congress which will certainly open his eyes to the current trending technologies in Nano fields and discover state-of-the-art prototypes, technologies, and research results.

“My goal is to become a bio-medical Nano technician so I may assist in finding ways to discover and treat cancer growths in patients, so I may help others as I have been helped.”

The scholarship selection committee was overwhelmed with Bruno’s willingness to contribute to the community, along with his drive and determination to achieve personal goals.

Studying a Bachelor of Arts, Criminal Justice, Tahilia is now in her third year. Tahilia credits the fact she is the only person in her immediate family to have completed year 12 as her motivator to continue with her studies.

“This might seem silly, but my greatest achievement so far is the completion of year 12. This achievement is so important to me as it has been the foundation to continuing on to further studies as a university student.”

Having lived in a Kids Under Cover studio since 2013, Tahlia’s determination and readiness to tackle hard work coupled with her passion for advocating for indigenous young people really impressed the selection committee.

Currently, Tahilia is exploring opportunities to volunteer within indigenous communities to further her understanding of the challenges faced and work on closing the gap for indigenous people.
