                Current study - Otago Polytechnic Bachelor of
                Design (Fashion)

                 Nineteen year old Fashion student Georgia
                 Davison is a confident and savvy young lady well
                 on the way to future successes. We caught up
                 with her while she was on a break from Otago
                 Polytechnic where she is studying Fashion Design.
                The former Whangamata Area School student
                chose to come to Tauranga to study the Diploma
                in Design (Fashion) in 2007 after realising she
                didn’t have the enthusiasm to continue her high
                school education. Bay of Plenty Polytechnic was
                her obvious choice for tertiary education with its
                close proximity to family in Whangamata, and the
                golden sands of Mount Maunganui.
                Georgia, a keen surfer, describes her time at
                Polytechnic as “awesome!” “I’d always had a
                strong interest in fashion, and the whole industry.
                The two year Diploma programme was exactly
                what I was looking for as it is very practical
                “I’ve got to confess though that I was a bit nervous -
                 I didn’t even know how to turn a sewing machine
                 on, let alone sew a garment! But the tutors were
                 all amazing; incredibly knowledgeable and patient.
                 I learnt so much, and it gave me the confidence to
                 carry on my studies at Otago Polytechnic.”
                 Also earning strong praise from the creative teen
                 was the Hadfield family whom she boarded with
                 for almost two years while studying.
                “It was my first time being away from home and
                 rather than flatting, I moved in with the family of
                 a classmate. It made the transition of being in a
                 new town so much easier. They treated me just
                 like another family member – they were really
                 awesome and I am incredibly grateful for their
