Personal statement

Born and bred in Porirua, I have an ability to work cross-culturally with people of different ethnic groups in various settings. I have good interpersonal skills in two languages. I have strong interest in seeing Māori achieve well in education and enjoy educational success. I value family time and sharing my knowledge with them that I have gained over many years.
