Youth worker, Developer, Whanau orientated, Open minded, Giving, Passion for people, Optimistic, Empathetic, Softball player
I was first introduced to the youth development sector when I was in my last year of high school and signed up to be on Youthline’s Youth Development Programme as a young person. This is where I met an amazing youth worker called Natalie Sargent who inspired me with her stories and encouraged me to join the BYD. Two years later while studying the BYD I started placement as a Youth Development Programme Facilitator where my story begun and now, it feels surreal that I am working in the same office where Nat used to. I am still in the very early stages of my youthwork journey but its amazing to see how one thing leads to another and opportunities arise because of the connections you make and the people you meet.
