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.

"Kia ora – Angela Boulton from New World Timaru here. Keen to discover a new top drop in time for summer?
My favourite wine from this year’s New World Wine Awards is the Starborough Sauvignon Blanc. I have worked at New World for 18 years, and I’ve been Liquor Manager for 12 years. I’ve seen and tasted some incredible award-winning wines, and this year is by far my favourite. This Sauvignon Blanc is so fruity on the palate, with flavours of lime and feijoa. It’s a perfect match with cheese and fruit platters for the upcoming summer months.”

Ngāi Tahu Tourism has been awarded $200,000 toward a pilot project converting one of its petrol-powered twin-V8 engine jet boats to 100 per cent electric.
If the trial is successful, the company will consider introducing the technology to Shotover Jet and potentially its jet boat fleet in Queenstown, Glenorchy, Hollyford Valley and Taupō.
