Guillermo William Revelo - Tūmahi Wheako, Experience

In April, I had the privilege to attend RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Awards), which is a leadership development programme for emerging leaders. Reflecting on my adventure almost three months later, there are three main learnings that I want to share with you: Teamwork. Inspiration. Self-Awareness.

Kirstie Dawson-Smith - The Freedom of Failure

There’s a sense of liberation that comes with embracing your “failures”. Just say it out loud, and breathe. Acknowledge it, and the impact that it has had an you as a person. See it as another stroke on your canvas, a page in your book, or a stitch on your shirt.

Kia Kaha

The past week has been a chorus. The voices of Aotearoa are one, strong, and stand together. This is what has been proven. We are one. We are strong. We stand together.

Today the Seed Waikato bloggers add their voices to the chorus echoing up and down this land which we share. We sing of support, of love, of our common humanity. Kia kaha.

Not just the surface level - not just the ones you have words for, but the deeper emotion, the ones that are hidden that you aren’t able to explain. Sometimes you need to exist in the messy space of feeling all of those things, but not try to understand them just yet. The barista at Coffee Culture reminded me of that.

Guillermo William Revelo - Rediscovering Auahatanga

When I found out about the 50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic” exhibition at the Waikato Museum, I knew that this was the perfect opportunity to restart my creative journey. I was excited to discover some of the most iconic images ever captured through the magic lens of a camera.

Kendyl Morris - #NewYearNewMe?

In order to seize this new year; to begin anew, we must be ready to make changes to our lives that are brave and courageous and have a positive impact on our well being and the well being of those around us. It is now, as a new year folds out in front of us, that we must take stock of the year that was.

Ngā Mihi O Te Tau Hou
