SOCIAL SUPPORT WORKER WHARE 4 WHĀNAU


Ko tenei toku pepeha I te taha o toku mama

Ko Taupiri toku Maunga

Ko Waikato toku Awa

Ko Tainui toku Waka

Ko Waikato toku Iwi

Ko Ngati-Pou, ko Ngati-Hine ōku Hapu

Ko Horahora toku Marae

No Tauranga Moana taku Kainga inaianei

Ko Alicia Tuau toku Ingoa

I am a Maori wahine toa, currently completing my social work degree at University of Waikato and have been working for Te Tuinga Whānau / Whare 4 Whānau for 1 year since my 3rd year placement here in 2017.

My view of myself has strengthened in many aspects of my life and I now have qualities that I can offer people. Things, such as the restoration of Mana (control, power and influence) and Manākitanga (hospitality, kindness, generosity, support).
