School: Freyberg High School
Tertiary: Lincoln University, Year 3, 2021
Degree: Bachelor of Agricultural Science with an additional Major in Environmental Management
Although I am from an urban background, I have wanted a career in the agricultural sector for as long as I can remember. My desire to follow this path began as a teenager working on farms throughout high school.
My focus at university is on becoming an expert in environmental sustainability and policy within the dairy and other agricultural sectors. My degree will help me to achieve this and provide me with a deep understanding of many other parts of agriculture such as soil management and livestock production science, and how these interrelate.
In the future, I plan to have a career which supports farmers through the changing times in terms of environmental sustainability. This will be in either consulting, research or policy.
The DairyNZ scholarship has been a great source support for me during university in all areas, such as academically, professionally, and financially.
