EIT student ready to follow environmental passions into degree
Born and raised in Hastings, Aimey Tahu (Ngāpuhi) followed the classic educational path expected of her, but she soon realised that she wanted something different for her life.
From Karamu High School she went straight to Massey University to try her hand at Veterinary Science and Biochemistry but neither pathway was leading where she wanted to go.
“On a whim, I dropped out and moved to Canada, deciding I’d come home when I knew who I was and what I wanted to do. The truth was I’d always been told what I wanted to achieve”.
Three years later Aimey, 27, returned to Hawke’s Bay, and soon after decided to enrol in the new Bachelor of Applied Science (Biodiversity Management) degree at the then EIT, now EIT | Te Pūkenga.
