Deakin Young Influencer Award

We would like to congratulate Emily Green on being chosen as the recipient of the 2021 Deakin Young Influencer Award. This award is open to all Year 11 students and Emily was selected as Saint Ignatius College’s winner, which is an incredible achievement.

The Deakin Young Influencer Award recognises excellence and celebrates students who are truly motivated to make a positive difference in the world - now and into the future. Deakin believes strongly in acknowledging outstanding students, who stand for the same values that we do. The University has rewarded Emily’s efforts and achievements with a $5000 scholarship to support their first year of study at Deakin University in 2023.

Emily’s willingness to assist shines through in her leadership within her school and sporting communities. Her eagerness to always strive to help and assist others is commendable. Her strong sense of community showcases her empathy, understanding and passion to make our society a better place.

Congratulations Emily, we wish you all the best and can’t wait to see what the future holds for you.
