Keryn Laing from Lismore 2019-2022

Keryn is in her final year of a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Education (Primary/Early Childhood) at Southern Cross University. Studying this degree will allow her to reach her life-long goal and make her dreams of working with children a reality. Keryn has a particular interest in working with special needs children. Keryn has recently been working as a carer for teens with disabilities, which she is enjoying. She passionately believes that every child can learn and achieve great things in the right environment.

With the generous assistance offered by Lord’s Taverners I will be able to put my beliefs into practice. Receiving the Lord’s Taverners Scholarship has helped me to remove the financial stress of studying full time whilst I raise my three children. The Lord’s Taverners are an extremely supportive group of people and I will forever be grateful for their support as they have gifted me with the help needed to be able to raise my children whilst I chase my dreams.
