I am passionate about te ao Māori and love to celebrate our culture here at Unitec. I am involved with tauira Māori in lots of different ways from being a mentor in the Whai Ake program, being part of Mātātupu – Unitec’s Maori association or just checking out the kura pō Māori night classes.
Being Māori is awesome so part of my vision would be to get more of us together for kaupapa Māori like kapa haka, overnight study noho, social get togethers, fun trips away together and other celebrations like Te Wiki o Te Reo and Matariki.
I truly want to see Māori thriving, succeeding and making the most of their Unitec journey. I feel the best way I can help with this is to be a welcoming ear to listen and a strong voice that will stand up and advocate for you.
If you give me your vote, I can promise to tautoko you in all ways possible and ensure that you are being heard at Unitec.
