Hear from some of our team

Marnie’s story

I’ve always loved working in education. I actually started out as a teacher, retrained as a counsellor, and through that journey, I’ve found my way to N4L. I don’t have a technical background, but I do have a lot of experience in working with people. Particularly students and what they need and what they’re going through. Knowing this deeply helps me connect schools. Read the full story.

Britta’s story

Growing up in Sweden, i fell in love with a Kiwi, and here I am, living in New Zealand nearly 20 years later. My journey to N4L actually started out in project management, and since joining, I’ve discovered a real passion for working for an organisation that has a purpose to make a difference to the lives of our kaiako and ākonga.

Mehak’s story

My love for technology came from a young age and feeling totally entranced by computers and what they could do, particularly in how they helped me learn. I went on to study at university and had an amazing tutor who inspired me to get into the digital security space. I love how education can make such a major impact on your life. Read the full story.

Suresh’s story

I believe if we connect all Kiwi kids and support them to have a happy life by providing safer, more reliable internet connections, the possibilities are endless. The magic thing about this work for me is seeing my children learn with the very technology we help connect them with — to see first-hand the difference it makes to their learning and the imagination.
