Education Awardee

Congratulations go to Fatemah Etemadi who is the inspirational 2020 Zonta Club of Perth University Education Awardee.

Fatemah Etemadi was presented with her University Education award by Zonta International Director, Judy Gorton

At the June club meeting Fatemah described how she was born in Iran and spent much of her childhood in Afghanistan. Her father died when she was 12 and soon afterwards her mother bravely started a new life in Australia with her six children (3 girls and 3 boys).

Fatemah is studying Oral Health Therapy at Curtin University and in her spare time is a volleyball coach and bicultural facilitator. She helped to organise the largest blood donation group in WA as well as a fundraising run for the homeless. She is passionate about helping others especially cancer patients, disadvantaged children and vulnerable families. She intends to use her $2000 award towards the purchase of a laptop, loop glasses, dental instruments and a possibly a car!

Fatemah was joined for the presentation by her two sisters, Zahra and Marzieh.

Club members wish Fatemah and her sisters every success in the future studies!
