We are proud to announce that Nicole graduated posthumously from Griffith University with a distinction in Bachelor of Communication on Friday 14 December 2012.
Nicole completed this degree via correspondence part-time over six years. During which she juggled working full time, and often helping out others on the weekend – whether it was dance teaching or being a sideline commentator for Hawkesbury radio. She also managed to fit in travelling, not only up and down the coast from her home in Lake Illawarra back up to Sydney to see her family and friends – she also took her studies with her when she lived in Japan and New Zealand and squeezed in trips to Europe & USA somewhere in between too.
We made the very emotional journey as a family up to Brisbane for the graduation ceremony. We were filled with pride when we took to the stage to accept Nicole’s degree on her behalf. The uplifting energy that could be felt in the room as the entire audience gave a standing ovation in Nicole’s honour made clear that our angel was standing right there on stage with us.
