Prime Minister’s Scholarship for Latin America, Social Realities in Mexico
Ko Te Toiokawharu te maunga e rū nei taku ngākau
Ko Whakatipu te roto o mahea nei aku māharahara
Nō Tāmaki Makaurau ahau
Ko Tayla-Lee tōku ingoa
My name is Tayla-Lee, and I am from Auckland. I am studying a Bachelor of Global Studies majoring in Spanish with Latin America area studies and Global Politics and Human Rights. I am also doing a Bachelor of Arts majoring in Criminology and International Relations.
I applied for this programme to open my mind and experiences to a new set of cultural ideas. I also wanted to expand my global citizenship in a program that would challenge me.
I am most excited about the Indigenous studies we will be doing through the program and culture shock, as this will be a beneficial experience for my future in politics. Let’s be honest; I am also incredibly excited about the food.
