School: Katikati College
University: Massey University, Year 1, 2020
Degree: Bachelor of Agricultural Science
My dairy farming background and experiences at a DairyNZ career day exploring dairy career opportunities, and a day with a DairyNZ consulting officer opened my eyes to the many career possibilities the dairy sector has to offer.
I quickly realised that through a Bachelor of Agricultural Science I could provide support to farmers both directly and indirectly through research and consultancy.
I am looking forward to starting a Bachelor of Agricultural Science to gain the knowledge and skills to realise my goals. I know the mentoring and networking the DairyNZ scholarship provides will give me invaluable knowledge and connections that will allow me to make the most out of my education.
