Why I’m running
I hope to inspire more positive solutions towards poverty. I will advocate for more personal development for the parents and caregivers in the home. I am optimistic about the outcomes we could see in our communities. With more re-training, education, financial and cultural awareness taught and supported by government and local iwi. I believe the legalization of cannabis will also be a positive impact on our economy and society. It will improve the livelihoods of whānau effected by prohibition.
Kia ora I was born and raised in Kawatiri Westport however, I now reside in Otautahi Christchurch. My whakapapa is Rangitane o Wairau, Ngati Kuia, Ngati Apa and Muaupoko I stand with the passion to see our people thrive. I come from a childhood of poverty, no identity, culture or education. I have a wealth of life experience and passion. I bring vision hope and a voice to our people and the whānau disconnected from their culture and identity.
