WINNING APPLICANT FOR THE 2013 MASSEY EXTRAMURAL AWARD
Hayley Elise Rose
Havelock North 4130
Hayley is working towards a BA Majoring in Psychology, Minor in Rehabilitation.
Hayley is a stay at home Mum to three children but works at a supermarket in the evenings as well as trying to study.
She is aiming to complete her degree to become qualified and would like to be employed as a Probations Officer. Her dream one day would be to continue her studies while working and become a Clinical Psychologist (something that seems a long way off at this point).
Hayley has been studying for four years and has attained great marks ranging from A+ – B+.
In October this year, Hayley intends to complete a 15 week programme to become a Lifeline Volunteer Counsellor as she would like to do some volunteer work in her community. This is a field she would find very rewarding and also relevant to her studies.
Hayley was absolutely over the moon when she received a phone call advising her that she had won the award.
