  • When I arrived in Dunedin for First Year Health Science in 2015, I was pretty intimidated. But the encouragement and support was coherent between WhyOra at high school and the Maori Health Workforce Development Unit (MHWDU) at Otago University. I was supplied with extra tutorials and connections, which helped me make it through to a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery (MBChB). I am extremely grateful and appreciative of the opportunities that I have been given by WhyOra and the MHWDU over the past couple of years. I would definitely recommend the WhyOra programme to any Maori high school student, as it helps you to grasp what you enjoy and find out what you don’t, also the continued support is invaluable.   Bre-Anna Langton
