Scott Parekowhai – MAPAS CertHSc Student

“The best advice I can give is to APPLY, APPLY and APPLY! Cast your net wide and you are bound to catch something. Whāia te iti kahurangi ki te tūohu koe me he maunga teitei - Seek the treasure you value most dearly: if you bow your head, let it be to a lofty mountain.”

Scott is a recipient of the University of Auckland Chancellor’s Awards for Top Māori and Pacific Scholars (2015), a Hauora Māori Scholarship (2015) and a Waitemata District Health Board Scholarship (2015).
