Photo: JASON OXENHAM By KELSEY FLETCHER Two Unitec interior design students are reassured to know they ve made the right career choices after being awarded scholarships towards their degrees. Westmere residents Anna Hobbs and Amanda Gore, who are each doing a bachelor of design and visual arts, are thrilled they ve received 2011 Nanette Cameron Scholarships worth $2500 apiece. Miss Gore won the scholar- ship for best design studio and Miss Hobbs won best communi- cation. Interior design icon Nanette Cameron, who is best known as a teacher of design, presented the scholarships at an exhi- bition of the students work from last year. The scholarship was based on the four assignments we had done in our second year, Miss Hobbs says. It was great for us to get the chance to exhibit in front of family and friends. The scholarships will help the two friends with course costs. Receiving it has given us the confidence to keep working for the final year and focus, Miss Hobbs says. The two students say they also enjoyed meeting Ms Cameron, who is just so passionate about design . It was amazing to share our work with Nanette and a real honour to meet her, Miss Gore says. She says it was fantastic to find out they had won the scholarships on the exhibition night. It was very exciting for both of us. We had put our heart and soul into our projects, she says. Both students have other qualifications with Miss Hobbs completing a degree in fine arts and Miss Gore completing a course in real estate. For me interior design was always a life long objective but I started in property because my mum did it, Miss Gore says. But I missed being able to make the creative decisions so now I m pursuing my dreams. Both girls hope to be able to incorporate their previous skills with their new talents. I m looking forward to get- ting started in an architecture firm. But I d love to travel and see all the architecture and design, Miss Gore says. Miss Hobbs is working part- time in an architecture firm.
