Qualifications: BA with First Class Honours
Iwi: Ngāti Hauā, Ngāti Hikairo
I am a current master’s student of Te Pua Wānanga ki te Ao. My research focuses on the evolution of Ngāti Hauā leadership, beginning with our tupuna Te Waharoa . My passions lie with Tribal Histories, Whakapapa and Te Reo Māori. I am passionate about nurturing second language learners, which I have done for the past 5 years through Te Tohu Paetahi. I have also had the privilege of being involved with Te Hononga ā-Kiwa. This program looks to increase Māori business capabilities and awareness and gives Māori tertiary (business) students the opportunity to engage with indigenous entrepreneurs and communities in North Asia (NACAPE), Latin America (LATAMCAPE) and South East Asia (SEACAPE).
