"I need time. Life is very busy, and time is my scarcest commodity.

I want time for me; time to do the things I really value, not just the functions of life, the getting the food and doing the gardens, those sorts of things. I want to have time to do the things I really value.

What I really value is environmental restoration. So, I spend my weekends planting trees, and I’d really like to do that fulltime, but I can’t see anyone paying me fulltime to do that. I’d just love to be planting trees all the time."

Theresa | Panmure - "I’ve seen so many young people move onto greater things from projects that we’ve done, and so if you just love them and believe in them, they can do great things....

I don’t know why I’m crying, I guess growing up, we had it a little bit hard and if you looked at the fact of vulnerability, we probably are four out of five for our upbringing. Because of that I see the need and see other young people going through that, and that motivates me."

No matter how bad things look at this time, or how sad things are, to remain positive in every way that they can. Enjoy life, and enjoy every day and appreciate what they already have. A stable home is a good home."

"I had quite a traumatic childhood. My sister drowned in the Whanganui River at five or six, and I wasn’t there to help her. A little while after, my father was killed in a motorbike accident. My mother followed within a year. I was barely a teenager. My mother died of stomach cancer, a horrible and painful death.

Then, we were in the hands of the Public Trust. Fortunately, as it turned out for me and my brother, I loved school. I stayed until the seventh form in the college house in Purnell Street. I became the head boy of the place, and ran it, when I’m looking back, as a dictator.

I started the network in Ōtara. It morphed into an action group, and it’s morphed again into a group of seven trustees of which I have been elected recently, quite recently to Chairman. To get the job, I guess you have to put in an apprenticeship, in my case of 25 years.

I think Ōtara community is the best community in Auckland. Certainly one of the best in New Zealand. I think nobody really appreciates Ōtara. The reason for that is they’re scared of the place. They don’t know it as I do. If they did, they would celebrate its diversity, its richness and its benefit to the wider community in New Zealand."
