EIT Visual Arts Student Explores Creativity

Story without Video

Event Details

Graduating this week with a Bachelor of Visual Arts and Design, Jasmine Ruru didn’t think she was capable of tertiary study. Now the 22-year-old says enrolling at EIT was probably the best decision of her life.

Jasmine enjoyed EIT so much she signed up this year to study the Bachelor of Professional Creative Practice (Honours) and hopes to progress to the Master of Professional Creative Practice next year.

Topping her art class at Taihape Area School, she also passed UE but drifted away from learning and “more towards doodles and social life”. After leaving school, she waitressed at a Taihape café.

“It wasn’t a very fulfilling life,” she says. “The café itself was lovely and the staff also, but something was missing.”
