Breanna Worth, Shaping Futures Scholarship Recipient

Growing up in NSW’s Northern Tablelands, far from the usual resources and freedoms of other aspiring designers, Breanna has shown exceptional resilience to pursue her dreams.

After years combining distance education, hours commuting to and from school and responsibilities on the family property, she is now studying Design (Architecture) at the University of Newcastle, with support from a Shaping Futures Scholarship.
