Coming from a family of five girls, Sheridan will be the first in her family to attend university. She wants to be a strong role model and encourage her siblings and others to persist at school and with further education.
Sheridan participates and highly achieves at a variety of sports at school, is creative and is a leader at her church.
"Sheridan presented herself with a refreshingly positive and open outlook on life and its opportunities. A life where anything is possible, given the chance. We saw enormous reward in helping her shape that journey and knew that she would grab the chance with both hands and make the most of it." Ron Curteis, General Manager of ABE'S Bagels
Sheridan's goal is to complete a Masters in Dentistry at University of Otago.
