This Friday September 12, co-founder of the Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington, will visit New Zealand for a number of high profile engagements. As part of AUT University’s sponsorship of the visit, two AUT Communications students have been given the unique opportunity to meet Arianna Huffington in person.
The students will attend an exclusive invite only function with New Zealand’s top business leaders and media where they will be the only students with the chance to engage with the celebrated author, journalist and modern trailblazer.
Journalism student Chelsea Armitage says she is proud to represent AUT at the engagement.
“This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet such a respected leader in the field of journalism. I am ecstatic to meet her in person. Arianna Huffington is a role model to most young journalists and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity.”
Arianna Huffington is recognised as one of the most powerful people in the world, having co-founded The Huffington Post, and is the outlet’s current editor-in-chief.
AUT’s sponsorship also includes An Evening with Arianna Huffington at the Viaduct Events Centre. The event will include a keynote speech where Huffington will share her story of building a modern media empire from the ground up.
