My study at Massey has been above and beyond anything I could have expected. It has been a lot of hard work, but my learning experience has been broad. In turn, developing my way of thinking about agriculture, to an open, future focussed and holistic view.
I had a number of passions growing up, but agriculture was one I saw as being able to make into a career. I chose my degree because to my knowledge, I have a greater chance of moving into a fabulous career at the end of my studies.
My membership with New Zealand Young Farmers has extended my university experience exponentially. There is an extensive list of things that have added to my University experience because of being involved with Young Farmers. I’m by nature not the sort of person to sit quietly in the shadows, which would have been easy to do in our large agriculture class. Us “Aggies” are a tight community, like-minded, competitive and full of big personalities. I would definitely say things have snowballed for me since my first year at Uni.
During my study I have been doing a pasture measurement for a local Farm IQ monitor farm as well as summer practical work, and writing for national rural publications.
At this stage, the world is my oyster. There are so many options, the hard part is choosing one and I look forward to seeing what opportunities await.
