I have always wanted more. Today it's called a ‘growth-mindset’. But growing up in South Taranaki, this type of thinking wasn't always considered the 'right' answer. While my classmates dreamed about lifestyle properties, I dreamed of high-rise apartments. While they played guitar and drums, Mum sacrificed to get me classical singing lessons. While they planned to be farmers, I planned to be the Chief Executive of Fonterra following after fellow Hawer-ian, Craig Norgate.
If nothing else, I've always stood out from the crowd.
