Degree: Bachelor of Agricultural Science
Growing up on a dairy farm on the West Coast and studying agriculture through high school gave me the motivation to continue into the dairy industry by studying a Bachelor of Agricultural Science. The DairyNZ scholarship has been a major boost in getting more understanding of the dairy industry and the career I can pursue after studying.
Being on the DairyNZ scholarship over the past year has been very beneficial to my studies and has broadened my understanding of the many aspects of the dairy industry. By having the networking at different events through the scholarship I have been lucky to meet industry professionals to give me a greater understanding of things I otherwise wouldn't have known and an idea of jobs for the future.
This scholarship has allowed me to gather better understanding of my studies through the mentorship offered from other students on the scholarship. By having an older student as a mentor I am able to have a point of contact when I am stuck with university and this is something that all on the scholarship or those looking to apply for the scholarship can benefit from.
