Sharonika finds resilience through Graeme Dingle Foundation

The Team from Graeme Dingle Foundation

Teen Sharonika Prasad used to be scared, of life, of opportunity. She lacked self-confidence. ‘‘I had a negative mind set in which I had beliefs that I would never be successful at anything, with a very low self-esteem. ‘‘I made excuses because I had no motivation and little confidence and I let life pass me by even if it was a wonderful opportunity because I was so afraid of the unknown.’’

Not anymore! Prasad, 18, and the youngest in a family of five, is now working as a caregiver while studying a foundation course at NZMA for occupational therapy and has realised she ‘‘could do anything’’. She is the first in her family to go to university. The South Auckland teen has found her potential with the help of our Foundation that aims to transform young Kiwi lives.

Just a gentle reminder.....

Mary from Casebrook

Just wanted to put it out there to all of us on neighbourly.
When one advertises they have a free item or an item for sale, a person makes contact and decides they want it and make a day and time to pick up the item, please ensure that the item is kept for the person. I live 25 minutes out of town advised the lady that had 4 x boxes of books to give away that I wanted them, and could pick them up at 2:30 pm today, also texted this morning to ensure all was well. Arrived to find she had given them to someone else. I wasted 50 minutes commuting......Rant finished, cheers.
