“I love singing and performing and so, just being able to perform on the G.W. Annenberg stage was amazing”
What are you doing now?

I am currently in my first year studying history at Durham University and alongside this I am pursuing my training to be both a yoga teacher and personal trainer.

What is your favourite memory from Wellington?

It’s difficult to choose one memory, but if I had to it would have to be the House Singing Competition. I love singing and performing and so, just being able to perform on the G.W. Annenberg stage was amazing but what was so uniquely Wellington was the sense of community and intense camaraderie that I felt being with my House and within such a supportive and stimulating environment. It was also a bonus that we won!

Why did you want to be a part of the campaign? What made you want to get involved?

I jumped at the opportunity to get involved for a number of reasons. The first was because the job itself sounded like something that I’d love; I love people and chatting to people, especially when we share a common experience as special as a Wellington education! Secondly, Wellington as a community, school and environment has given me so much that I value even more now I am at university that I would love to be able to be a part of helping another young person have that experience. Thirdly, from a personal developmental point of view, I am excited to challenge myself with a new role.

A fun fact about yourself?

A fun fact about myself is that I have been to seven schools in my life – none as special as Wellington!
