Shannon talks about her Discovery Scholarship

Seven Discovery Scholarship recipients share who they are, the awesome study they’re doing and the difference the Discovery Scholarship has made to their lives

Shannon Macdonald - Te Taumata Award recipient at the University of Auckland

Shannon says she has been encapsulated by science ever since she was young, and that passion only grows exponentially within her as she learns more about it.  She says a deeper fire and the spark of this fire came from learning she was part Fijian and Ni-Vanuatu, this small piece of knowledge made her excited to learn more about her background, food, ancestors, challenges, culture, and identity.

"Do not ever stop learning."
