C&C is a convergence of my REAP and the vision of what I want to do in my life. The dream of running a socially-centered business started when I was still in college, the whole experience of studying in Melbourne gave me the business tools and technical know-how, and it was the REAP that crystalised and validated my dream to jumpstart C&C.

As a special educator, it is truly fulfilling to empower my former and current deaf students to become problem-solvers and entrepreneurs through my REAP: the Deaf Entrepreneurship Program. With the education I gained from the Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship at Swinburne University of Technology, I am able to teach them the basic competencies needed to build a business.

Can I apply for another scholarship at the same time as applying to the Awards?
