            1994-1998, Conjoint Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Laws

            I'm so pleased I gained my conjoint degrees from University of Auckland.

            My qualifications have stood the test of time. The legal principles from Faculty of Law and the research methodology from Faculty of Arts, together with the wide range of papers I was able to include in my degrees have strengthened and deepened my life. I now face challenges with confidence, knowing I have a huge resource behind me. Thank you, Uni of Auckland..!

            UOA Sociology Studies: The Fire behind my International Career

            Deciding to a Double Major in both English Lit and Sociology was the best decision I have ever made. The impact the lines of enquiry, the skills and the research my studies in Sociology took me through, led by the most amazing Professors, lecturers and tutors, have been the fire behind a career that has taken me to over 15 countries. My specialisation now in Strategic Networking and Organisational Communication is largely down to the foundation set by UOA and what I gained from the incredible thought leadership I was exposed to on a daily basis. I would recommend everyone who is keen to learn how to look beyond themselves and to develop a truly global perspective to seriously consider attending UOA for an outstanding World Ranked Degree.
