Kia ora koutou! 

I tipu ake au ki Hurunui i raro i te korowai o Ngāi Tahu. I tipu ake au i raro i te maru o te maunga o Isobel i te taha o te awa o Waiau Uwha. E mihi ana au ki ngā tohu o nehe o Waitaha e noho nei au. Ko Hope tōku ingoa.

I am stoked to be one of the Communication Officers alongside Maya on the 2024 Lads Without Labels Exec Team. As a Communications Officer, I'll be helping with running the socials so you can stay up to date with all our events and initiatives we have going on throughout the year.

Although I am local to Ōtautahi, I grew up mainly in the small town of Hanmer Springs.  I am grateful to have grown up in Te Waipounamu with such an incredible backyard at my doorstep, and in my spare time, I enjoy, going on hīkoi (walks), tramping and being in the outdoors. One of my passions is creating, and you can often find me with a camera in hand, journalling or painting. I am currently in my second year of university studying towards a Bachelor of Arts specialising in Society, Diversity and Change minoring in Māori and Indigenous Studies. 

I am excited to be a part of Lads Without Labels as I am passionate about the mental health space in Aotearoa and creating meaningful and lasting change for future generations.
