Georgia Morton : Bachelor of Environmental Planning (BEP)
Georgia Morton was first introduced to volleyball at intermediate school, when the team’s coach suggested she give it a go. Seven years later, Georgia plays outside hitter on court, and thrives on the game’s competitive atmosphere. She has played in several national tournaments, and in 2014 was the captain of the New Zealand Under-19 Junior Women’s volleyball team and competed in the Under-19 Asian Women’s Volleyball Championship in Taipei. Georgia was born in Waihi and attended school in Whakatane, where she was a school prefect, a student council member, house captain, and – alongside volleyball - played hockey at a representative level. At the University of Waikato, Georgia is studying a Bachelor of Environmental Planning and is looking forward to meeting people from all over the country as part of the Sir Edmund Hillary Programme.
