“Success is not the work of one, but the work of many” 

Jovan Potter

2022 Intern

Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Kahungunu, Rongowhakaata, Rongomaiwahine

Jovan Potter has completed his first year at the University of Otago studying Foundation Health Science and will continue into the Heath Science First Year program in 2023. To Jovan, the Mātai internship is a great opportunity to explore other areas in the health industry and he aims to learn more about medical imaging and other career pathways offered at Mātai. As a descendent of Ngati Porou, Ngati Kahungunu, Rongowhakaata and Rongomaiwahine, he is also interested in the involvement of Mātai in our community, and especially Māori. Jovan believes that the internship will help him gain and improve skills and qualities to be successful in a career in the health sector.
