I have always been excited and hands-on in learning about the world and spent my childhood constantly exploring through playing music, competing in sports, making art, and volunteering.
Doing these activities, I felt comfortable. The one thing I lacked, being almost impossible to learn in a classroom, is self-confidence.
The Pinnacle Programme adventure helped me realise this confidence and harness it.
I am driven to make the Pinnacle team proud and I am forever grateful for the foundation they have set for me to launch from.
Today, I am studying Mechatronics Engineering conjoint with Design at the University of Auckland.
In the future, I hope to lead radical innovations and technologies that aid humanity.

I am also driven by a growth mindset, knowing that "I can't do that... yet." However, I can realise my goals with the right amount of time, hard work, and luck.
Hyundai's design philosophy
What guides our design ideas, and how do we apply them to the real world? That’s where our philosophy of ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ comes in, which has helped us create the array of technological innovations that have made our cars some of New Zealand’s favourites.
At Hyundai we make our own steel. It’s only through this no-compromise approach that we can ensure everything meets our high standards of precision. It also means we can tailor designs precisely, and make all the continual improvements that define the Hyundai driver experience.
