Meet Student Ambassador: Wakana Main
Wakana, our newest student ambassador is from Japan and lives with a homestay family in Whangarei. She is a year 12 at Whangarei Girls’ High School. We asked her about what it’s like living in Northland.
What made you choose Northland?
My friend lived in Northland and I thought it was good to go somewhere where there are known people. Also I didn’t know much about Northland so I wanted to know Northland.
What do you love most about studying at school in New Zealand?
I love how we can choose the subject that we want to study. Also I like it because we can meet a lot of students from different countries and become friends!
What are your favourite experiences in Northland?
I haven’t been to many places yet so I don’t know but I will find my favourite place through being a student ambassador!
What is like living with a homestay family?
I like it very much. They are very nice and I get to have cute little sisters 🙂
What are your interests, sports and hobbies?
I like playing the guitar but I’ve only started so I’m not really good at it…
What is your favourite local place to hang out with friends?
Town basin cafes.
