What is a provocation or insight that might inspire others during this challenge?

I am an Australian university student who has a Co-op Scholarship funded by Australian companies: * Students: receive industry experience and financial support, chance to practice concepts taught at university. *Companies: additional staff, chance to build relationships with future graduates This helps to cover expenses such as textbooks, travel, membership for clubs, stationary.
