Words from your Coordinator

Kia Ora!
My names Chloe 😀, 

A little about me: I was born in Wales but moved to Kerikeri, Northland where I spent most of my childhood. I relocated to Australia in my high school years where I stayed to study my Bachelor in Behavioural Science (Psychology). During this time I worked in the University setting helping young people transition into student life. In 2023, I relocated back to New Zealand to be closer to my family, reconnect with my kiwi roots and start my postgraduate studies in Psychology.  

I am super passionate about all things mental health, giving back to the community, and helping people become the best version of themselves. In my free time I love doing all sorts of arts and crafts, being outdoors, going to the beach, and spending time with my friends and family.   

Raise Up is an awesome way to develop your confidence and leadership skills and give back to your community. Along the way, you will have fun, make new friends and attend some awesome events!

"I have definitely gained a lot of confidence. I’m still not the most confident person, but my confidence has skyrocketed because of Raise Up and I’m able to do a lot more things, things that I didn’t think I could do.”"
