1. Where did you grow up? 

From 7 weeks old until I was 11, I lived in England, in a town called Warrington. My dad was playing rugby league over there and both my parents taught over there too. We moved back to New Zealand in 2007 and have lived in the beautiful West of Auckland ever since (which is where my parents both grew up). 

2. What school did you go to? 

I went to St Dominic’s Catholic College in Henderson. 

3.What super power would you most like to have and why? 

The ability to speak in any language would be an awesome super power. I love talking to people and exchanging stories with people and if I could do that without a language barrier, that would be amazing. I also appreciate the roots of different languages and how words and concepts can be unique to specific cultures.  

4. What brought you to Logos? 

I first encountered Logos as a Year 10 student at school when they did a session in my class. I then got to know them through the different school retreats they ran. When I attended the Special Character Retreat as a school leader, I found a strong connection to the mission and purpose of Logos and I really wanted to become a Connector. The year after I left high school, I jumped straight in to the Connectors programme and have been a part of the Logos community ever since. 

5. What was the best advice you received as a young person? 

“Do what you love, love what you do.”

6.What advice would you give to your younger self? 

“Your life is yours, no one else’s. You have a duty to live it as best as you can.”

7. What do you do to make sure you are being your best self? 

I try my best to put good things in to my mind, body and soul that are going to allow me to put good things out too. This includes food, exercise, sleep, good conversations, quality time with quality people, staying clean and fresh and smiling.
