Hei tā Shay Wright “I think coming from a small community like Kaitaia means that we think differently, we think more creatively, and I think we are more grass roots and what that means is that I've got my feet firmly on the ground but because I've been to University I think I'm quite exposed to a whole lot of opportunities.”
