Tēnā koutou, my name is Anja Shearer-Sonier, and I am a full-time second year law student at AUT South Campus, a small business owner/Director in the construction industry and a mother to 3 young daughters. I will serve on the AUTLSS Executive as an Education Officer for 2023.

Through my role as student rep in 2022, I built a strong rapport with students and law faculty alike. I successfully facilitated communications between students and faculty and found my peers were comfortable approaching me for support. 

I am incredibly passionate about student success and am excited to serve as an advocate for student support on behalf of our membership. I will work hard to ensure every student has the best shot possible at this degree. I am particularly conscious of the vast range of demographics we have studying with us at AUT and in my role as Education Officer, I will strive for inclusion for people from all walks of life.

I consider myself a compassionate, empathetic and approachable person and welcome our members to reach out to me should they need to. I will go to bat for you!

A fun fact about me is I can rap Caribou Lou by Tech N9NE word-for-word.

Ngā mihi me te aroha nui.
