Basketball, university or firefighter? Tall Fern Ella Fotu does it all

Caroline Williams Reporter from North Harbour News

Ella Fotu grew up playing sport, but it wasn’t until she witnessed her older brother, Tall Black Isaac Fotu, making strides with his basketball career in Hawaii that she decided she wanted to go pro too.

She would go on to do that, and much more.

The 25-year-old from Torbay is juggling being a Tall Fern and playing for local club Harbour Breeze, alongside studying for a degree in environmental science via distance at Massey University, and, working as a firefighter at the Devonport Fire Station – the latter two are full-time gigs.

How does she manage all that?! Click 'read more' to find out.
