ACG Parnell College graduate Tiffany Chee has been awarded a University of Auckland Faculty of Law Entry Level scholarship.
This is her third scholarship offer – she was also offered a Victoria University Excellence Scholarship and a University of Otago Academic Excellence Scholarship.
With 2A* grades and 3A grades in her A Levels, Tiffany is now planning to study a BCom/LLB majoring in Economics and Finance at the University of Auckland.
While at school, Tiffany was CEO of Young Enterprise group Rippl, which designed ‘The Pulse’ – a wristband to help deaf people “feel their space” through vibrations.
The team were finalists in the Auckland Region Dragons Den, came second in iDEAStarter, and are investigating a partnership with the National Foundation of the Deaf (NFD).
The experience motivated Tiffany’s decision to study law.
“In terms of my career aspirations, working on Rippl has inspired me to become a commercial lawyer helping businesses achieve their long-term goals. I’d also like to do work that helps get more females into leadership roles in the legal profession and business world,” she said.
Despite finishing at ACG Parnell College, Tiffany’s team is continuing with Rippl this year.
“We are planning to hopefully get into an incubator, and are currently having discussions with mentors about which one would be most appropriate for us.”
