"My experience as an intern at Suncorp has been unforgettable and the fact that I was accepted through the Women in IT Scholarship program makes it that more special. It definitely gave me an extra edge all throughout the program. Being awarded an experienced mentor allowed me to take advantage of the best of what Suncorp has to offer and also gave me the opportunity to build a bigger and stronger professional network that included inspiring women role models and other brilliant individuals within the company."
