"I am very grateful to have been awarded the BECA Part II Engineering Scholarship. This allowed me to encourage myself and others to make the most of all opportunities presented to us, and to achieve everything we can. I am studying a conjoint degree in Engineering (Engineering Science) and Commerce (Operations and Supply Chain Management, and Commercial Law), and this scholarship money has allowed to me to not feel financially pressured if I need to take time off work to focus on my studies or other commitments. Some of my other commitments include being a leader for the Women in Engineering Network at the University of Auckland, and playing hockey. Through receiving this scholarship, I also had the opportunity to attend a presentation evening at BECA, where I met some of their employees and executive team."

"Winning this award has provided me with some great career opportunities with the sponsor, Rakon, and it was very motivating to receive some recognition for all the hard work I have done at university. In addition to this, it has taken away some of the financial pressure of supporting myself away from home and allowed me more time to focus on my studies this year. I am currently completing my final semester of Mechatronics Engineering at the University of Auckland. Over the next couple of years I hope to undertake a Masters overseas and then begin my career in aeronautics or robotics."
