How would your friends describe you in a couple of sentences?
The first thing my friends would probably say is I am outgoing and love a good convo! I think they would say I am a loyal friend and relentlessly positive (definitely a glass-half-full type of gal)

If you could be a crayon, what colour would you be?
What do you spend your time on?
I am a big reader! So I spend a lot of time reading and trying to reach my Goodreads goal for the year! If I am not doing that you can find me swimming or hanging out with my friends and whanau. I also have a massive passion for helping people be more engaged civically so I spend some time volunteering at Community Law and working on engagement in our communities

Lake Karapiro, I went to primary school out here and it reminds me so much of my childhood.

Moving out of home
