Tania Areori works as the Regional Veterinary Officer for the NAQIA – PNG Biosecurity.
Tania knew she wanted to be a vet from a young age.
With limited veterinarian study opportunities in PNG, she applied for an Australia Awards scholarship to achieve her goal.
In 2020, she graduated with a Bachelor of Veterinary Science (Honours) from Charles Sturt University
Tania now encourages other aspiring vets to consider applying for an Australia Award.
“The scholarship has basically allowed me to achieve my aspirations, and we need a lot of veterinarians in this country. Take up the opportunity Australia Awards provides and apply for the scholarship”.
