School: Central Southland College
University: Lincoln University, Year 3, 2021
Degree: Bachelor of Commerce (Agriculture)
After seven years working fulltime in the dairy sector progressing from a calf rearer to a farm manager, I decided it was time to add value to my practical experience and skills. I made the big decision to head to Lincoln University and study towards an agriculture commerce degree as I wanted to broaden and strengthen my knowledge and skill set.
One of my future goals is to work with rangatahi and enlighten them to the many opportunities in the dairy sector. I am keen to build strong networks so that I can showcase these opportunities and careers and ensure that all rangatahi are supported and successful in the sector. Nurturing the knowledge of our tipuna will be vital in the success of tangata whenua.
