Gabrielle Rostirolla - Western Sydney University

We would like to congratulate Gabrielle Rostirolla for winning the February Scholarship, as she embarks on her academic journey at Western Sydney University, where she is pursuing a Juris Doctor degree.

Gabrielle is a trailblazer within her family, the first to undertake tertiary studies, inspired by her parents’ resilience and determination. Her path to the legal profession was shaped by significant personal challenges, most notably when her father was diagnosed with Huntington’s disease. This diagnosis led to a drastic change in her family’s circumstances, with Gabrielle stepping up to navigate complex administrative tasks and support her family.

Despite the hurdles of balancing work, family responsibilities, and her studies, Gabrielle has maintained a commendable GPA. Her dedication to her legal education is driven by a commitment to leverage her future legal career in service of those in need, aiming to break down barriers to accessing legal services and social advocacy.

The scholarship awarded to Gabrielle recognises not just her academic achievements but also her character, defined by perseverance, empathy, volunteering, and a deep desire to effect change.

Gabrielle’s journey and aspirations are a testament to the indomitable spirit that has characterised her family’s approach to life’s challenges, and this scholarship is a step towards enabling her to fulfil her potential as a dynamic force for change in the legal profession.

She aims to use her artistic skills to help patients feel more comfortable and accepted in society.

Her goal is to fill a gap in a niche yet essential field, particularly in a region where the demand for such services is high due to the prevalence of skin cancers.

She will use not only her business marketing knowledge but also her French will help in communities like Cameroon, DR Congo, Chad and Haiti, where French is the official language. Elysee wants to help contribute towards change from the ground up.

Elysee hopes to be one of the very women that is able to do that, the underprivileged has made a huge impact on Elysee and she has committed to being part of the 40 hour famine for 7 years and was short listed as a World Vision Youth Ambassador in 2016.
