Escence became involved in all areas of school life very early on in her time at Pukekohe High School and quickly became a valued role model.

"Escence has been a student of Pukekohe High School since Year 9 and from her first year here has shown what an asset she is to our school. She is well-respected by her teachers and peers alike and is a focused and engaged student, set on achieving her goals. Escence is mature and courteous, friendly and obliging and consistently demonstrates positive role-modelling through her work as a valued member of her vertical form class," said House Dean Peter Orton.

Academically she has done particularly well in Drama and English. Outside of the classroom, she was a Peer Mediator, and CEO of The Rising Foundation and helped organise multicultural activities and events as part of her role with the Cultural Council.
