    Tonight marks a new chapter for skateboarders here in Australia and I'm incredibly happy to be apart of it. University of Sydney now officially recognises Skateboarding as an offical Sport and both @amar_hd And I are the first ever Scholarship Holders for Skateboarding. This now means that we don't have to choose between furthering our studies and perusing Skateboarding. I've always found education super important in life and to have my skating encouraged in and supporter by a University has been a dream of mine for a long time. Thanks to the help of @redbullau The Australian Skate Federation and among many individuals who have supported me since day one, none of this wouldn't of happened in the first place. Things just got real #skateboarding @redbullau @oakleyaus_nz @precinctskateshop @modusbearings @susf_eliteathleteprogram @thesundayco_ @esskateboarding

    Week 1... It's been one of the craziest weeks of my life. I Started University. I'm proud to say I've become a Student at University of Sydney. I'm not the first to say that Skateboarding is experiencing the most rapid change ever. I'm incredibly happy to share with you all that with The Australian Skate Federations and the ISF I've become USYD's First ever Scholarship holder for Skateboarding. Their Elite Athlete Program are now recognising Skateboarding as a legitimate and professional sport. This means I have the full support of @sydunisport to pursue Skateboarding professionally. The most important thing is, this isn't just for me. Not at all. I've been working with USYD to create a program for skateboarders for months, this now means if you are a skateboarder that represents Australia, you're a good role model for sport and you wish to further your studies, you can even as a skateboarder gain support as a professional athlete. Without the support of @redbullau @precinctskateshop @oakleyaus_nz @esskateboarding @modusbearings I wouldn't be able to do what I love in the same way. So grateful of everything I have.
