Chonaire Huriwai

With a dream to one day work as an event manager in the sport and recreation industry, AUT alumna Chonaire Huriwai chose to major in management in both the Bachelor of Business and Bachelor of Sport and Recreation.

After graduating at the end of last year, Chonaire interned in the US through the AUT Internz International Scholarship Programme, which enables AUT graduates to immerse themselves in a new market and culture.

“I wanted to apply for this six-month internship because I saw it as another incredible opportunity to further develop my skills in the sport and recreation industry. It’s also an amazing opportunity to gain international experience in the recreation industry,” says Chonaire who interned at the ranch of Colorado Springs five-star resort The Broadmoor.
