Words from the Coordinator

Kia Ora, 
My name is Roimata; I am of Maori descent and a die-hard GI local. I am the Youth Programme Coordinator for Raise Up Tamaki. I attended Pt England Primary, Tamaki Intermediate and Tamaki College. I have lived in Pt England for 27 years – don’t do the math, it gets embarrassing.  
I have been with the Y on and off since 2008. I’ve worked in OSCAR programmes, I’ve taught swim, I’ve been a lifeguard, a kiwi sport coach and a receptionist.
Initially I applied for the role of Raise Up Tamaki Coordinator because it was a role I had never done. With a twist of the arm, I decided to give it a go. I have had more challenges in the months I have been here than the years I have worked for the Y; but I wouldn’t change it for anything. 
I am now a Youth Worker in the community that helped mould me. I love Raise Up – you will too!
