For much of my early life especially, I was penalised for being Maori and successful.
For much of my early life especially, I was penalised for being Maori and successful. Secondary teachers colonised me right out of the education system so I dropped out and went to work. Yep I taught them, NOT! I never gave up on myself, picked up my reo in my fifties, graduated from Social Work in my 60s and intertwine all that I am today and tomorrow. My reo continues to grow each day...
