A Students Life

Waiata Nore, Student Social Worker
Studying toward a degree, balancing a family, finances and working full time is not easy and I’m not always the master at balancing it right. Completing my social work degree has certainly been a journey, and to carry on has required some soul searching, but I am here and I am succeeding!

My empathy for others is increasing in new ways and my ‘feel goods’ now include seeing achievement and joy in people I don’t even know. To date, in my student placement, I feel wealthy already. So many ‘ako’ (enlightening) moments, that have me filling and re-filling my ‘kete’ (basket) of knowledge.
