Words from your Coordinator

Kia ora!

My name is Rhona and I am the Coordinator for Onehunga! If you’re new to Raise Up, welcome, and I hope you are excited to get involved!

A little bit about me, I was born in Auckland and have lived here my whole life. Throughout my high school years, I loved the sport of trampolining; now I keep active in social sports (mostly football). When I left school I studied Psychology and Criminology (and loved it)! Currently, I value spending time with friends, family, enjoying the beach, and just hanging out and having fun!

Being young can be tricky, but there’s so much room to learn and grow – and have some fun in the process! If you are keen to make new friends, learn new skills, put on some exciting events in your area, and make a difference in your community, come join in!

"“The best thing Raise Up did for me was turn me from a follower into a leader. At meetings and events, if there are issues that need to be solved I jump in and fix them rather than stand back and let other people do it.” "
