Now, the AMP – and the generous gift that enabled her to attend – has empowered Dunstan.“Knowledge is power,” she said. “The more knowledge you have of business or whatever field you choose, the more opportunities you will have to help your community.”
Looking ahead, Dunstan wants to pursue a certificate in project management and contemplates a move to an urban setting one day.
“I’m 51 and I’m realizing that I am smart,” she said.
“I want to be a better person, to be a role model and lead the way for the younger generation. I want to motivate young people to believe in themselves and go after their dreams. If you want to be successful in life, you need to work hard and never give up on yourself. Just go for it and don’t let anyone stop you.”
