I want to make a positive contribution to the future of the dairy sector.
Through family involvement in dairy farming and agribusiness and taking agriculture at school as well as being involved in a TeenAg club, I understand the importance the dairy sector has in New Zealand.
I am enjoying studying agricultural science at Lincoln University. I am gaining the skills, knowledge and networks that I will need to have a rural professional career so that I can help farmers to meet and solve the challenges the sector is facing while still having a successful farm businesses.
The mentorship that DairyNZ scholars gave me during my first year was very helpful. It made the transition easier into university from high school and It helped me improve my grades. The mentorship aspect of the DairyNZ scholarship is very helpful and is a key to my success so far in my university life.
I’m excited about the future ahead of me in the dairy sector.
