Supporting rangatahi to step into their own space/Autonomy, coaching and learning alongside each other – Rangatahi ki Rangatahi.
My dog is named after movie director Percy Jackson

My journey with TAaR started in 2017 as a young 16 year old wahine, who had just moved from Auckland to Kirikiriroa not knowing anybody.
With the help of my whaanau we found TAaR and I started attending the support group Sisters in Arms. I made lots of friends and connections with various people, this has been a very influential part of my life and helped shape the proud and confident woman I am today. I have been in various Tuakana roles and I love learning alongside the people we support.
