Bo Yun's conscientious attitude and attention to her studies was reflected in her high level academic results at high school. She was awarded a High Distinction Award in her Yr 11 for excellent work ethic and also received Academic Excellence awards for Human Biology, Algebra, Geography and Physical Education. Aptly, she was a member of the school's Gifted and Talented group for 2009. Her volunteer involvement in her Church activities and local rest home revealed her community focus.
The Year 12 Dean at Auckland Girl's Grammar School recognised her as 'an extremely hardworking student who uses her initiative; she works independently or as an effective group member when necessary.'
These attributes bode well for Bo Yun in her choice to study Nursing at The University of Auckland and in 2013 she graduated with a Bachelor of Nursing. She has currently completed the new graduate programme, NETP, and after 2-3 years gaining experience in the health industry, she sees herself working to establish health clinics in underdeveloped communities; using her knowledge to help people both physically and mentally.
