Being awarded the Trust Porirua Scholarship has had a huge impact throughout my very cold journey down here at Otago University.

When I was first told I had received this particular scholarship, it was a huge financial weight lifted off not only my shoulders but my mum’s shoulders as well. Not only has it enabled me to attend Otago but it has also helped me build relationships with the lovely people who awarded me this prestigious scholarship.

The Trust Porirua Scholarship has helped me pay for my accommodation fees which estimate to $13,500. Without this scholarship I can honestly say I would most likely not be here at Otago University today.

I would like to extend the greatest of thanks to the amazing Porirua Community Trustees for giving me this wonderful opportunity.
