I joined the Pathways team in 2013. Prior to helping with this project I completed a BA in Theatre Studies at Otago University, so it has been lovely returning to the Otago campus as a qualitative data coder for the Pathways project. I have always been interested in how community, culture, government, and geographical environment impact the lives and behaviour of individuals. The coding of the interviews within this research has been a unique opportunity for me in this respect, and I never cease to be inspired by the voices of the amazing young people who have taken part in this project.
