Hello to all, I was born in Australia and with my family, moved to Ireland as a baby.
Grew up in Kildare where I have spent the majority of my life and connect back to Mayo through my father who was originally from Bohola.
My mother was born and bred here in Christchurch and through her, I link back to Rāpaki Marae and Galway. In 2017, I came here for a family reunion and to connect with my whānau and have ended up staying.
In my first year here I joined the society as it felt like having a slice of home right here in Christchurch. For the past year, I have enjoyed being on the executive and look forward to the upcoming year.
