Brisbane university student Molly Kenworthy (pictured) has a dream to travel overseas one day to teach English as a second language. COVID-19 travel restrictions aside, she is a step closer after being chosen as the Zonta Club of Brisbane’s nominee for the Jane M Klausman scholarship.

Molly wins $500 and is then the Club’s nominee for the Zonta District award of $2000 – the winner of this award is then put forward for a Zonta International Award of $8000USD.

Molly is a third-year student at The University of Queensland, Molly is doing a Bachelor of Business Management majoring in marketing and digital management achieving strong academic grades.
