My iwi are Ngāi Tamanuhiri and Ngāti Porou.
My previous mahi have included Youth Tutor for Te Ao Māori and Youth Leadership for Kokiri Taiohi. I Currently Co-ordinate the Youth Guarantee programmes that are offered here at Turanga Ararau. I am a part of a young and vibrant team who are like me are passionate about working with our Rangatahi who have opted out of school to achieve education in a supported environment.
I am involved with Programme development, marketing and Academic Advisory team. Turanga Ararau has given me a lot of great opportunities and a highlight for me would be as a NZ Ambassador at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada. I hope to soon give the same opportunities too many of our Rangatahi.
