“I was at James Cook several moons ago now! 88 – 92 I think.
I knew ex-pupils who had joined the Police and I wanted to follow suit. I guess without realizing it they were my role models as they had achieved at school and went on to a pretty demanding job at a young age.
I’m now a Detective Sergeant in Tauranga, overseeing child protection. I’m also the host of Police Ten 7.
Words of advice – don’t waste precious time listening to those who tell you what can’t be achieved, celebrate every day you spend proving them wrong.”
