Study tips

Take some time for yourself. It’s okay to have a day off every now and then. Make sure you get enough sleep!

Dream mahi

It turns out my dream job is what I do now, working for my iwi. It’s both challenging and rewarding. I’m home in the Bay surrounded by my whānau. What more could anyone want!?

I really admire …

The commitment and passion of my work colleagues. When you work for the iwi, it is a 24-seven all-consuming job. Too much, the NKII staff!
