​Quite simply everything. It is for me like a home away from home. Having grown up on and around my marae the InZone kāinga and whānau truly have the essence of all that encompassed. Being able to work where my God and my tikanga is placed at the forefront is amazing. Being able to work alongside such loving and respectful young men – who hold our future in their hands – is a blessing I am truly humbled by.
