“I’ve been interested in tech since I was 10, and thanks to the help and support of NZSE, I rediscovered my passion for it and now have my own PC repair shop.”

Studying at NZSE helped Myles rediscover his passion for tech. Myles was interested in computers and tech for most of his life, from playing computer games at a young age to fixing and restoring hardware as he grew older.  

“Growing up I always liked computers, I got my first computer when I was 10 and from then I always played on it. They were all old and slow, so I had to learn how to factory restore them, defrag it and maintain the software.”

Myles left school and, as a very practical and hands on person, decided to go into labouring jobs as he was unsure of the career path he wanted to go down.  

"After I finished school, I didn’t pursue tech. I started as a labourer, was constantly in and out of jobs, and couldn’t figure out what I wanted to do”

Getting caught up in the wrong crowd, Myles started down a troublesome path and realised he needed to turn his life around.  

“I thought okay I have to change. I revaluated my life from the very beginning to that point in time, I wrote and wrote; pros and cons, what I was good at and what brought me down. In the end I told myself, I’ll go pursue technology”

Myles joined the whānau enrolling in our NZ Diploma in Networking (Level 6). He was eager to learn and absorb as much information as he could.

“It wasn’t easy, but I started studying a Diploma in Networking. It was really hard, but I did it”

He had many highlights during his studies but the main one was his tutors who were warm and gave helpful feedback on how he could improve his assignments.  

“The tutors were really good, I was quite amazed actually. They taught me a lot and the support was tailored to me and to each student.”

Myles was glad to make some good friends too, people he could rely on and who he catches up with often.  

“I made some good friends with similar interests to me and who were working towards the same goals. The boys and I still hang out.”

Thanks to his hard work, the support from our staff, and newfound friends, Myles graduated the programme as one of the top students in his class and has since opened a PC repair shop on Queen Street.  

He is excited to share his story to encourage other people to discover and follow their passion and be determined to make it happen.
