Jayden Houghton is soon heading overseas on a Prime Minister's Scholarship.

Jayden is still discovering what company he will be matched with in Colombia but has had consistent communication since discovering he was a scholarship winner. He feels confident about what is expected during his six weeks in the vibrant tourist city where he will stay.

“I like to take any opportunity I can, and to do an internship on the other side of the world is such a unique and special chance,” Jayden says.

He knows there will be little time for sightseeing as he will be straight into his internship and can’t wait to see how different cultures do things.

“I hope to learn a lot from the cultural experiences they have planned. If you want to be a leader or a business owner, cultural understanding is very important,” he says.

Jayden studies IT at NMIT and has already wowed kaiako (tutors) with his talent. He created the official website for Post Memory(external link), a project led by Creative Industries Support Coordinator, Sarah Arnold, who said Jayden’s professionalism, eye for detail and commitment to the project was outstanding.
