I am extremely humbled to announce that I was selected as the winner of the 2014 Newcastle Young Alumni Award which is a true honor, especially considering the calibre of the other nominees and finalists coming from the fields of medicine, engineering, biochemistry and more. There are a few snaps below and more found on Facebook.
The University of Newcastle 39th Annual Alumni Awards recognises “innovation, creativity, exceptional leadership and those who inspire others through their local, national and international achievements.”
There are 8 separate categories under the Alumni Awards and all of them “celebrate gamechangers – the unconventional thinkers, the challengers, the people who push boundaries and see possibilities”.
The Young Alumni Award in particular recognises “outstanding professional achievements and contributions by a graduate aged 35 years or younger at the time of nomination” in which I was the final recipient. Hooray!
Thanks to Murray McKean for the photos and of course The University of Newcastle!
