"I completed a BSc in Sport and Exercise Science in 1997 and currently work as Kaiārahi at the Science Student Centre. What drew me to the degree in the first instance was my love of sport and physical activity and what I gained from it was an analytical ability which I found crossed over into other areas of my life."
