I grew up on a lifestyle block and have worked on different dairy farms. It is where I have gained an interest in the relationships between soils, pasture and the environment.
I am interested in a research career to better understand these relationships so that practical solutions can be developed to help solve current and future challenges.
I am completing a Bachelor of Science, majoring in agriculture science, with a focus on soils and plants. In the future I plan to complete post graduate studies in plant and soil science.
The dairy scholarship mentoring program has helped me to adjust to university life. This is through the mentors being there to answer any questions about university life. Mentors also checked in to see how you are going in your first year. The networking program has helped me to meet people in the agriculture sector and gain a better understanding of what they do.
