For NZMA graduate, Lagi Lalaulu, 2020 was a challenging year.
Following the closure of international borders to manage COVID-19, the proud mother of two was one of the hundreds of Air New Zealand staff made redundant.
After years as a flight attendant, Lagi says she was at a loss: “I had no real qualifications to apply for jobs besides flight attending.”
It was then that Lagi made the decision to retrain with NZMA Ōtāhuhu, studying a Level 3 Certificate in Business and Technology.
“Once I completed my course, I had the confidence to apply for positions and go for interviews.”
Lagi excelled in her studies. Upon graduation, she was recruited by NZMA to be a sales executive at the Ōtāhuhu campus.
“I love that I get to work in a high impact industry like education.”
“NZMA allowed me to take a giant leap forward with my life. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed studying. It helped me find my renewed purpose and believe there was hope for my future.”
