Lila Chaudhry

Lila is studying a double degree in Animal Science and Animal Health under a Bachelor of Agricultural Science at Murdoch University’s Perth campus.

She says she is incredibly grateful to receive the support of PCF.

“This scholarship will assist me to a great extent, as it will enable me to focus on my full time study and I will be able to purchase the resources necessary for my course- such as lab coats, dissection kits and textbooks.”

Not only does Lila have a heavy study load – she has a part-time job and helps manage many concerts at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre (MPAC).

Lila and her family have lived in Mandurah for the past 12 years.

“The Mandurah community is my home – going to school both primary school and high school within 10 minute’s walk of my home. I was a junior councillor at Halls Head Primary Schools and I am very musical and love helping to manage shows at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre (MPAC)”

Lila says she has always had an interest in animals, and always knew she wanted to work with animals when she grew up.

“I am aiming towards becoming a Vet,” she says.

“I chose Murdoch University as they have the best animal program, with on-site farms and the animal hospital, as well as the Anatomy Museum. At the end of this year I plan on trying to transfer into studying Veterinary Science. I have been doing work experience placements on farms and in local vets to help me with this.

“Studying at Murdoch is amazing as it allows me to experience everything hands-on on campus, making it so much more enjoyable and great learning experiences. I am incredibly grateful to receive the support of the Peel Community Fund during my studies at Murdoch University.”

    Lila, congratulations on getting support from the Peel Community Fund. I am sure you will make the most of your time and experiences with your studies, and this Community Fund will make a huge difference. This in turn will enable you to stride that extra help and go to make a difference yourself. Your blog provides a good insight into what you are motivated by and I know from people how rewarding working with animals is. All the best. Aisha Chaudhry
