Jadan Ofono Twyla Hekau – Year 3 MAPAS BHSc Student

"The Ko Awatea scholarship pays for my student fees and it's such a relief knowing they have been paid. As part of the scholarship I am required to do three Ko Awatea volunteer events and one Middlemore Foundation volunteer event each year, which I enjoy as they are great opportunities to get involved with different community groups and gain invaluable experience at each event.”

Jadan is the recipient of a Ko Awatea Health Scholarship (Counties Manukau District Health Board) (2013-2015).
