Soon after being awarded a First Foundation Scholarship by Mercury Energy, Elenoa stepped into the position of Head Girl at Otahuhu College, a privilege that reaffirmed her excellent leadership qualities. In her Year 13 Elenoa was involved in leading a number of school related groups. One specific opportunity that highlighted her strong leadership ability was the chance to be the Youth MP for Mark Gosche in Parliament. She describes this experience as "a privilege to be part of the youth that will help shape the future of New Zealand."

Constantly balancing a wide range of co-curricular activities with her academic studies, Elenoa is continuing the balancing act by studying a range of subjects through a Bachelor of Arts at The University of Auckland and working partime at Mighty River Power Limited.
