Personal statement

I believe life should be approached in a positive manner and endeavour to do so. This has led to travel throughout New Zealand and overseas, experiencing and learning from other people, cultures, and societies. I appreciate diverse perspectives and endeavour to be respectful of these. Being a bicultural New Zealander is something special to me and is an important influence in my lifelong learning journey.
