A keen sportsperson, Tonaya dances and plays soccer, enjoying the social and fitness opportunities which sport brings.

Tonaya has a dream of travelling the world somewhat in the footsteps of the great Australian Fred Hollows, and hopes her Bachelor of Science, specialising in vision science and mathematics, will help some of the world’s 2.2 billion people who are struggling with eye related issues.

Since receiving her scholarship, Tonaya has begun her studies at the University of New South Wales.

“I have been living in Sydney at one of the residential colleges,” Tonaya told News Of The Area.

Tonaya’s scholarship is one of two Mayoral Scholarships which Club Lemon Tree sponsored in 2023.
