My why is firstly my daughter Mahina- Bell, she is in the bilingual unit at kura and loves Te Reo, loves Kapa Haka and really connects with who she is, her identity.
My why is firstly my daughter Mahina- Bell, she is in the bilingual unit at kura and loves Te Reo, loves Kapa Haka and really connects with who she is, her identity. As a Maori and Pacifica I have seen her confidence grow and give her a good foundation of who she is, I just want to help her build on that alongside her so we can speak openly in our own whare and to others that visit. My second reason is me! I want to speak Te Reo and I have always wanted to but I lack confidence, and I am such a perfectionist but I want to set my Reo Maori Wings free.
