""Te tiro atu to kanohi ki tairawhiti ana tera whiti te ra kite ataata ka hinga ki muri kia koe."

“Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you”

Kia ora! I am gay. I am Maori. I am Tongan. I live with Diabetes. I come from a single parent family. I have lived in Tauranga, Hamilton, Auckland and am currently residing in Christchurch working for the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and am also member of the Pasefika network. And most of all, I am a Diversity Champion.

A fun fact about myself, is that my first name is Hebrew, my middle name is Egyptian, my last name is Japanese, yet I am half Maori and half Tongan!

I am a nurturing person with a big heart and I look forward to sharing my journey and learnings as a member of the Out@PSA committee.
