Madeline Terekia-Short

Kia Ora, my name is Madeline Terekia-Short and I am the youth representative on the Canterbury Youth Workers Collective board.

I live in sunny Southshore with my husband, 3 cats, 3 chickens and 2 bunnies.

For my mahi, I am the children coordinator at Grace Beach campus and the 24/7 youth worker at Avonside Girls High.

In 2020, I completed a Bachelors in Youth Development through Praxis and Weltec.

In my spare time, I love to read, snuggle my cats and go for brunch with my friends

I love lists, clean bedrooms and vegetarian hamburgers, I dislike meat, cooking and running.

It is an absolute honour to be able serve the young people of NZ, specifically Christchurch, and see them grow into the next leaders of our nation.
