As part of an ongoing journey to pursue knowledge and discover my identity, I have stepped into the new role of Pou Tari – Office Manager. I believe that the variety of roles that I have been involved in over the last decade, have led me to this space.
This role allows me to learn and share the amazing taonga and mātauranga of Mōkai Pātea with the wider whānau. In learning these gifts at mahi I was inspired to begin my own journey to learn te reo, which my siblings and I have embraced wholeheartedly.
