School: Palmerston North Girls’ High School
Tertiary: Lincoln University, Year 3, 2021
Degree: Bachelor of Commerce (Agriculture)
Growing up on a dairy farm sparked my passion for the rural sector; the lifestyle and challenges it brings intrigues me.
At school I gravitated to maths and commerce subjects which lead me to study a Bachelor of Commerce (Agriculture) at Lincoln University.
Although I believe this is a very challenging time to be entering the dairy sector, this only makes me more eager and excited. I aspire to help farmers through this challenging time.
The most valuable part of the DairyNZ scholarship is the mentoring programme. It expands your network with like-minded, driven, highly ambitious students and allows you to collaborate with students within your degree. The workshop nights enable you to see how your studies can be put into practise and related to the real world as well as give you valuable industry connections with rural professionals.
