An academically sound and focused young woman, Janet has prominent ambitions to work as a health professional. "She is always willing to help others and has a strong work ethic...Janet has immense potential" said her Yr 12 Dean.

Despite a passion for the sciences, Janet's talents also earned her success in subjects such as Visual Arts and Graphics in her Yr 11, proving her a well-balanced student. In her Yr 11 Janet got Academic Excellence awards for almost all of her subjects. In her Yr 12 she received an Onehunga High School Scholarship for passing NCEA Level 1 with a grade point average of 97% and endorsed with Excellence.

Alongside her studies Janet's other passion is Table Tennis. She has been highly committed to initiating and organising a team to play competitively representing her school.

Personal experiences with short-sightedness compel her to become an Optometrist in the future and to contribute to research in eye-disease. She is currently  studying for a Bachelor of Optometry and Vision Science at The University of Auckland which she will complete in 2017
