My name is Craig Ragas, and I am a mature aged student learning new skills in an ever-changing world.
I come from humble beginnings as a child from a one parent household living in community housing. My education options were limited and while I did enjoy studying from a young age, I ended up leaving school early and have spent most of life working labour-intensive employment.
In late 2021, I decided to take a chance, to follow my dream and to make a difference in not only my life but in the hopes of improving other people’s lives as well. I enrolled in the Skills for Tertiary Education Preparatory Studies (STEPS) program and my desire for learning exploded, since commencing a Bachelor of Information Technology.
My CQUniCares TechnologyOne Future Leaders Scholarship will provide me with the resources to continue to produce excellent results in my course and my future employment. I will be able to improve my software options and purchase programs I could never afford without this generous scholarship.
Thank you TechnologyOne Limited for the kind and generous scholarship. I am determined to continue to excel in my studies and achieve my goals of creating programs that could enhance the lives of vision impaired people, having seen firsthand how technology can help them but also what in technology is difficult for them to access.
