Nancy Hafoka

Class of: 2015
School: Onehunga High School
Scholarship Partner: Auckland DHB Charitable Trust
A passion for caring for people when they are at their most vulnerable has inspired Nancy to work extremely hard at both her academic studies at school and volunteering within her community, putting her well on her way to her goal of studying nursing. "

A self-motivated young woman, Nancy stands out as a student who is dedicated and caring. She is empathetic and has a genuine desire to help others, at the same time being mature and realistic enough to handle the stresses of this caring profession," said Principal Deidre O'Shea.

Nancy was born in Tonga and moved to New Zealand in 2011. She relishes the educational opportunities that she has been able to enjoy since living here. Nancy also plays badminton and soccer, and is very involved with her church.
