I feel now is the right time for me to start my journey.
I feel now is the right time for me to start my journey. I've been talking about it & wanting to do it for years, but other life choices meant that I put the idea on the back burner until now. The time feels right for me. I want that connection with my whanau, my ancesters and whakapapa. I want the confidence to stand up in the front of my Iwi and korero in Te Reo Maori, which I always wanted to do instead of feeling embarrassed. I want to show my children that its not to late to learn our native language, to keep taking on challenges and keep learning.
