This cheerful, positive, self-disciplined and enduring young woman is an incredibly talented sportswoman; a strong participant and leader in many sports. Becky has particular skill in Soccer and has represented her school since 2008 in the First XI team, which she was Vice-Captain of in 2011. Becky has been in regional winning teams for Futsal and Cricket, going on to compete nationally. Outside of school, Becky plays Soccer for Northface and helps to coach younger Soccer players. "She is motivated to achieve to a high level and rarely achieves anything less. Her effort towards her academic programme is to be commended and she has excellent leadership and interpersonal skills and develops strong relationships," stated her teacher, at the time, for High Performance Sport.

Becky's first connection with Sport Northland was helping to put out the Soccer nets every morning for midget teams. Becky further impressed Sport Northland in her interview for a First Foundation Scholarship and they are delighted to have selected her as their inaugural recipient.

Moving to Auckland to Westlake Girls High School for her final year of secondary school to pursue wider sporting and academic opportunities, Becky has graduated from The University of Auckland with a Bachelor of Education (primary) and is currently teaching at Ardmore Primary and hopes to teach overseas. In the future she wishes to build an Education Centre in a Third World Country.
