David Hansen

Class of: 2017
School: De La Salle College
Scholarship Partner: Auckland Transport

David in his own words ‘comes from a small house but he has big dreams’. Although he is not sure yet as to which pathway to head down, he is interested in engineering, medicine, and education – all of which are worthy sectors to aspire to work in.

David’s lifelong goal is not a career benchmark, but rather to continue as a lifelong learner and beyond university to use his qualifications to work in an area he loves while being able to give back to his parents and grandmother for all their financial sacrifices in his life. He wants to build not only a sustainable future for himself, but to look after the generation that went before him and will come after him.

David attended De La Salle College and is proud to be part of the Tongan Community.
