My name is Isla and I’m a stage 3 Pinnacle Programme student from Wellington.
I do a lot of things, from discussing the dry year problem on a ministry reference group to investigating the immunosuppressive products of sea sponges and coaching 7-year-old mountain bikers.
My blue sky thinking and ambition sometimes means I’m spinning many plates but I like to keep busy.
I’m currently studying an honours year in biomedical science and love breaking down and communicating complex science ideas.
When I’m not at university, you’ll find me advocating for climate justice or dreaming up initiatives to get more young women riding bikes.
The Hyundai Pinnacle Programme has opened many doors for me and helped me channel my energy.
I feel very lucky to be a part of the Pinnacle whanau and am excited to see where the next stage of my journey leads me.
