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.

Does Hamilton need a $79.3m theatre?

Kendra Stone Reporter from Waikato Times

Hi neighbours - the theatre, set to be situated on Victoria Street, will be an "enabler for economic development", and will be shared with meeting rooms, a restaurant/cafe and five star hotel.

What do you think of this investment? Is it what Hamilton needs or should money be allocated elsewhere first? Read more here
