I am 19 years old and am currently in my second year of studying a Bachelor of Business Analysis majoring in Economics and Sport, Health and Human Performance at the University of Waikato. I was born and raised in Rotorua but moved to Hamilton in 2016 to study. I am a very active person and have been my entire life playing a range of sports such as; Basketball, Rugby, Rugby League, AFL, Touch and Cricket. My biggest achievements in sport have been playing for the NZ Warriors under 18 team in 2016, playing for the New Zealand Under 18 AFL Hawks in Melbourne in 2016 and 2017, and being named in the AFL Premiership Competition Team of the Year in 2017. I have also represented the Waikato/Bay of Plenty Rugby League team from 2013-2015 competing in the Rugby League National Tournament over the years known as the Wai-Coa-Bay Stallions.
I do voluntary work for the University of Waikato at the Avantidrome setting up and running fitness modules for high schools that visit and also like to get involved with activities the university such as Inter-faculty events the University provides.
In 2016, I played Rugby League for the Ngongotaha Rugby League Premier team and also the Bay of Plenty Rugby League Premier team, and in 2017, I played Rugby League again for the Ngongotaha Rugby League Premier team and the University Under 85kg Rugby team.
