Being a New Zealand champion, I love that I not only have chance to expand my product knowledge about NZ but I also enjoy the satisfaction that comes with increasing the awareness of studying in NZ
What plans does IDP Hong Kong have for promoting destination New Zealand over the next 12 months?
We will have regular and ongoing interview sessions with our NZ partners, as well as hold joint seminars with Australia as a strategy to attract more students to learn about and consider studying in NZ
In your opinion what makes NZ such a great place to study?
- Lower living costs than some other destinations makes NZ more affordable to the student’s family
- The magnificent natural environment enables student to enjoy and relax from their study time

When are not at work, what do you like to do in your spare time?
I have two young children, they are four and seven years old so I enjoy spending time with them. On weekdays, I spend time reading to them and playing some family games at night. On weekends we go to the beach, go hiking and have family gathering and things like that.
