School: Bethlehem College
University: Lincoln University, Year 2, 2021
Degree: Bachelor of Agricultural Science
Growing up on a lifestyle block and my love of animals and science helped me decide to take agricultural and horticultural science as a school subject. This quickly became my favourite subject and gave me insight into the agriculture sector and the exciting range of career opportunities.
Having finished one year at university, I have found the support that DairyNZ and the older students on the scholarship provided extremely helpful. This support increased in value as we were faced with the challenges that came from Covid-19. Networking within DairyNZ meant that I was able to secure a summer job early on in the year. I could go into this job knowing that it would be great work environment to learn about farming and carry out my practical work.
I look forward to continuing my studies at Lincoln University and gaining the skills and knowledge I need to have a science career in the dairy sector.
