Recipient of the Angela Uzielli Bursary
I studied Medical Sciences at University of Exeter for 3 years, and it was during my time there that the High-Performance Director of Sport made me aware of this bursary.
As a university student, life is never easy from a financial perspective and golf is an expensive sport. By the time you have paid for your rent, bills, food and gym membership, suddenly the idea of spending additional money on golf society memberships, travelling to courses nationwide and buying equipment and clothing can become all too much.
For this reason, I am incredibly grateful, for the bursary helped towards my accommodation and textbook costs freeing up money to allow me to practise and compete at the highest golfing levels. Without this bursary, I would have been unable to afford to be a part of the Exeter University Golf Club for 3 years, of which I spent the last 2 on the committee as competition secretary.
Having now successfully graduated, I am hoping to start my officer training in the Royal Navy in 2021, with the hope of making the naval golf team, which brings additional prospects of travelling the world competing against other armed forces.
I would strongly recommend any young female golfer to apply for this bursary, as without it, I would have missed out on so many amazing golfing opportunities over the last 3 years and my university experience would subsequently have been very different.
