Ko Tainui te waka
Ko Tararua tōku maunga
Ko Manawatū tōku awa
Ko Ngāti Raukawa ki te tonga tōku iwi
Ko Ngāti Whakatere tōku hapū
Ko Amelia tōku ingoa.
Kia ora my name is Amelia. I'm one of the Kaitūhono/Connectors for Mana Whaikaha. I grew up in Taitoko (Levin), and am living in Ōtaki. I am a mum to four children, I am also studying toward my potuorongo toiora whānau (social work degree).
My kids and I are also learning Te Reo Māori as a whānau. In my spare time I enjoy learning new things, heading back to my marae.
I have worked for People First Ngā Tāngata Tuatahi as a meeting assistant and for People First's Easy Read service. I am looking forward to working alongside tāngata whaikaha and whānau. Mauri Ora.
