Personal statement

I was born and raised in Ōtautahi and outside of mahi you will find me spending time with friends and family as well as my extended marching family.

I am blessed to be involved in one of New Zealand’s amateur sports that I love very much because it gives me a strong sense of team spirit and self-discipline. Marching heightens the powers of concentration and physical fitness, pride in grooming and personal achievement as well as musical enjoyment and lifelong friendships. I feel very lucky to have 23 marching sisters who I train with twice a week and compete locally in the weekends between October-March. When we are not training, we are competing both locally and nationally and that keeps me very busy.

I am a loyal and dedicated team member who loves to communicate effectively with a variety of people from all walks of life.
