What do I want to achieve as a youth councillor?

I want to make Hastings a better place for youth. I would like to create more activities and facilities that are directed at youth to give them a good sense of belonging in Hastings and they won’t feel they need to travel else where to do things and have a good time.

What do I love about Hastings?

I love the feeling, vibe and growth Hastings is experiencing. With the opening of the Toitoi Arts & Events centre, Hastings will become increasingly exposed to and be able to facilitate more music, dance and cultural events – this fills me with excitement the potential for Hastings to become a centre for North Island and NZ arts. Additionally, Hastings is filled with a wonderful bunch of people, and it is those people who are at the heart of what makes Hastings great. A Maori proverb sums this up: He aha te mea nui o tea o - what is the most important thing in the world? He tangata, he tangata, he tangata. It is people, it is people, it is people
