Coming from a farming background and having a passion for animals, a career in the agricultural sector is something I have always wanted to pursue.
I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to discuss and explore a range of careers in the dairy sector with my family and our farm team.
A rural professional role as a farm consultant or a DairyNZ consulting officer interests me as I would like a career that supports farmers to have successful farm businesses and improve sustainable practices. Finding solutions to combat challenges in the future of the everchanging agriculture industry and informing farmers on how to implement these intrigues me.
Receiving a DairyNZ scholarship has allowed me to create new connections in the sector through networking opportunities and mentoring sessions. The guidance given to me throughout my first year on the scholarship programme has been invaluable.
