  1. Kia Ora Taleisha,

    I love the photos you've included of you and your Whanau! It looks like your mum must have a very busy household with you four! I also have three siblings, I have two sisters and a brother.

    Thank you for sharing your pepeha with me, I have learnt from it that we come from the same Iwi, Ngapuhi!

    I also loved learning more about your Mum, Grandad and Nana. They sound like very awesome people! I can't believe your Grandad is 76 yet he has never had chewing gum, is there a reason he hasn't?

    Ka pai Taleisha, I'm looking forward to reading more of your blog posts soon.
