What qualities do you think make a great leader?

Someone who is open to any new ideas or suggestions, someone who commitment, passion and drive, someone who has good decision making qualities and someone who is caring and likes to have a bit of fun along the way.

What are some of your biggest achievements at school so far, rugby and/or study related?

Being sports captain for the school and I have passed both level 1 and level 2 merit endorsed. I was also endorsed both years with excellence in P.E. My biggest achievements in rugby would be getting into the under 18 Canterbury red squad in my second season of playing rugby and now only onto my third year and I am the captain for my school team and also for my first game in the women’s grade. In 2019 I got a starting position and a full 80 minutes which I was pretty proud of.
