Nicole Lundon - Scholarship Recipient

18 July 2014

Nicole Lundson, who attend St Catherine's College received a Catholic Foundation scholarship in 2008. She attends Otago University and has completed five years of her Medical degree.

In 2014 she has taken a gap year out of her studies to work in Youth Ministry in the Wellington East Pastoral Area. This decision to work with the youth of this area stemmed from her passion to see the youth of the Catholic Church involved and participating as the Church of today, not the Church of tomorrow.

Nicole will return to complete the final year of her studies in 2015 and from there will pursue a career as a doctor, prehaps with a focus in youth and young people's health. She is grateful to the Foundation for the assistance it gave her with her tertiary costs as with this support she was able to purchase a laptop for her studies in Dunedin.
