I'm a youth worker who loves Jesus and loves seeing young people reach for and discover their God-given potential. I have had 14 years experience working with youth here in Ōtautahi, but the other side of me is I am an MK who grew up in Papua New Guinea. I have a passion for language and culture, and love the challenge of Te Ao Māori. I have done 5 years of supervising youth workers, and am honoured to have been able to support them on their journey.
