Kia Ora, my name is Abbie Wood. I attended Sacred Heart Girls’ College NP and am now studying a Bachelor of Design Innovation - majoring in communication design and minoring in marketing at Te Herenga Waka - Victoria University of Wellington.
I have a passion for the creative arts and design and have blended this with my involvement in business. My most recent venture is The Together Collective - creating opportunities for young artists to share their designs on clothing and with the world. www.thetogethercollective.co.nz
I applied for the Taranaki Careers Expo scholarship to help support me with additional course related costs such as software, materials for projects and text books. This has allowed me to focus on learning and start to build the necessary skills on my journey in communication design and digital marketing. Attending the Taranaki Careers and Training Expo has been a key part of my career and study decision making.
