Word From The Coordinator
My name is Shari and I’m the new Ōtara Crew coordinator.
I’m originally from across the ditch (Aussie), and now call South Auckland home. I’m into performing and visual arts, being active, getting out into nature, and love a good ocean swim. I’m also a Brooklyn Nets supporter and will challenge anyone at a good board game! In my spare time I hang out with my whānau and friends and take my doggo for runs.
I’m really passionate about empowering young people, and providing a platform for our crew to thrive as individuals and together as a group. My goal is to create a space that is open and supportive - where we can learn from each other, plan epic events and have heaps of fun in the process!
Joining a Raise Up crew is an awesome way to hang out and connect with each other, and do good for our local community. Get in touch if you’re keen to join!!
