Georgia Wins Women of the Future Competition - 14 September 2016

LHC past pupil, Georgia Richards, has been announced as the winner (Judges’ Choice category) of the 2016 Australian Women’s Weekly Qantas Women of the Future Competition.

Georgia’s achievement was announced by Dame Quentin Bryce at the Awards Ceremony in Sydney on 31 August.

A panel of well-known female judges, including Julie Bishop, Lucy Turnbull, Chloe Shorten, Lisa Wilkinson, Jesinta Campbell and Olivia Wirth, selected Georgia based on to her ground-breaking scientific research in chronic pain management.

As competition winner, Georgia has received a $20,000 grant to help her continue her work in alleviating the ‘silent epidemic’ in Australia.

Georgia, who graduated from LHC in 2011, said that she was grateful to the Lourdes Hill community for their support throughout the competition, which also included a People’s Choice category.

“I feel overwhelmed by the support of the Lourdes girls and the Lourdes Hill community; I cannot thank you enough,” she said.

Georgia’s sights are now set on Oxford University, where she will complete her PhD.
