Arielle Wakelin

Class of: 2009
School: Avondale College
Scholarship Partner: Auckland DHB Charitable Trust


Arielle's consistently positive attitude and willingness to provide support and help for others makes her a young woman with incredible potential to make an impact on her community through her life and career. Arielle played an active part in her school environment as a prefect, musician, leader and sportswoman.

Arielle trained to be a Nurse through Unitec. Mission trips to third world countries, in 2009 and 2010, confirmed to Arielle the satisfaction she gets from 'making a difference; bringing happiness and joy to others.' Outside of study hours, she continues to make a huge contribution to her Church where she is a Youth Group leader and a leader for the Children's Ministry.

In February 2014, as a registered nurse, Arielle started work in the Orthopedic Ward at Auckland Starship hospital and began post graduate studies in the second half of the year.
