An excellent communicator, a strong critical thinker, an ambitious and out-going girl and a decisive and steady character, are some of the personal qualities that stand Katie in good stead for a career in Psychology or Criminology.  She is aiming to study these subjects in a Bachelor of Science at University.

Her enquiring mind has seen her achieve highly at school across English, Mathematics and Science.  In 2011 Katie gained an Academic Excellence Award for Science at school and a National Certificate in Mathematics at Level 1.

Katie is looking forward to tertiary study. "Katie is unlike many young people  in that she has set herself a goal from a young age and is determined to achieve it...her passion to succeed, diligence and perseverance eliminate failure as an option,"  wrote her Yr 12 Dean at the time that Katie applied to become a First Foundation Scholar.

Katie plans to study at either Otago University or Victoria University Wellington.
