校友奖学金获得者
Jessica Harvey and Tiari Killeen-Townsend are the 2022 winners of the University of 十大体育外围平台排名 校友奖学金.

Master of Teaching and Learning student Jessica Harvey and Te Tohu Paetahi student Tiari Killeen-Townsend are the 2022 recipients of the University of 十大体育外围平台排名 校友奖学金.

校友奖学金 was established in 2016 by the University of 十大体育外围平台排名 校友 Association (Te Rauika Pukenga) to support alumni who are continuing their academic journey by returning to study.

Each recipient was selected based on the positive impact they have had on communities since graduating and their commitment to furthering their impact in their chosen career paths. Both recipients are studying at the University of 十大体育外围平台排名’s Tauranga campus.

杰西卡在离开17年后回到了十大体育外围平台排名. She initially enrolled in 2003 where she completed a Bachelor of Arts and followed her passion for languages and majored in Japanese and Linguistics.

Her degree took her overseas to Japan where she lived for four years before returning home to raise her family. 在此期间, Jessica worked in various administration roles but always knew she wanted to do something she could make a career out of. “I didn’t mind admin work but I wanted something more fulfilling that I could pour my passion into.”

So in 2022, Jessica made the jump and enrolled full-time to officially begin her 教师培训. Jessica says enrolling again at the University of 十大体育外围平台排名 was a no-brainer.

“I had such an enjoyable experience with my first qualification and now with the Tauranga campus making learning accessible, 这使得回去学习变得容易多了.

“这个校友奖学金带来了很大的不同. It gave me that feeling of safety that I wouldn’t have had without it.”

第二个接受者Tiari, who previously completed a Bachelor of Social Sciences and a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychology, has enrolled in the University of 十大体育外围平台排名’s one-year total immersion Māori language programme – Te Tohu Paetahi.

Enrolling in Te Tohu Paetahi has been a crucial step for Tiari’s academic, 职业生涯与个人经历. Her first enrolment in 2014 was influenced by her whānau; her mum and brother both completed degrees at 十大体育外围平台排名. This time her enrollment was an accumulation of many factors: wanting her daughter to grow up speaking Te Reo Māori, strengthening her own personal wealth and gaining a better understanding of the people she worked with.

“在新西兰青年正义协会, 我主要研究的是马āori rangatahi, Whānau和他的同事. Many of my colleagues could speak Te Reo Māori and they reminded me of the importance of knowing and learning Te Reo Māori to enable a better connection with others and myself.”

完成此文凭, Tiari hopes to be accepted into the Clinical Psychology Programme where she will have a greater understanding of her own identity.

Tiari recognises the challenges that come with leaving work and returning to study but is grateful for the support of the scholarship.

“It’s great that the University is supporting people by breaking down those financial barriers so they can further their education.”
