About Ngā Puhi, Ngāti Whatua, Tainui and Ngāti Maniapoto.
I grew up in Whangārei but currently living in West Auckland. I am the Head of Māori Studies at Rutherford College.
I went to the University of Waikato and completed a Bachelor of Arts (major in Japanese) and Bachelor of Teaching (Professional Education), a Post Graduate Diploma in Education (Maori Education) and a Masters of Education (honours).
I speak te reo Māori, Japanese and currently learning Samoan.
I have an interest in education, sports, young people and politics.
I am excited about the opportunity of running in the Henderson-Massey Local Election Board this year.
Fa'afetai lava. Chur.
