My name is Jenna Jacob and I’m a proud Ku Ku Yalanji woman from Mossman in Far North Queensland. I am in my third and final year of a Bachelor of Mass Communications at Queensland University of Technology (QUT). I hope to complete my Honours program in 2016.
I have been a recipient of the MADALAH Scholarship for 2 1/2 years. The financial support has been incredibly helpful throughout my university degree. I have been able to pay for textbooks and other study expenses as well as keep up to date with rent and unexpected bills.
As you may be aware, it can be quite an ordeal for uni students but being a MADALAH recipient has meant less stress and more time spent on studying rather than worrying about finances.
I am incredibly grateful to the donors who have helped support students like myself throughout their university degrees who are experiencing financial hardships.
I hope this program continues into the future so that students of the next generation can benefit also.See more success stories
