I have been living at Shalom College for four years. It has been a life-changing experience for me. I have had time to work hard at uni, in a racism-free environment in which Indigenous students can live proudly. Without this scholarship it would be impossible for me to study medicine as there is no way my family could afford for me to live in Sydney.— Josef McDonald, 5th Year Medicine, University of New South Wales, Shalom Gamarada Scholarship Recipient
