Last week when former United States First Lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton visited New Zealand Selwyn College was involved! Defining Moments, the travel agency which organises Education Outside the Classroom tours for Selwyn students, such as our recent Media Studies Trip, hosted several of us for dinner and to hear Hillary’s address at the Spark Arena. We were particularly thrilled to be asked to choose a senior male student to attend and this person was Year 13 student Louis Hutchings.
Louis writes: "I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to go to Hillary Rodham Clinton's conference while she was in Auckland and had the chance to meet her face to face and exchange a few words. Clinton was a powerful and talented speaker, she spoke with compassion and honesty. She discussed 'what happened' with her 2016 election, the importance of women in politics and her future as a leader. The night was a fantastic experience. A massive thanks to everyone involved."
