TK | Papakura

Probably paying for the last bill last week, maybe. Yeah, definitely it was the money.

Not letting people down I think, as well. So yeah that was a bit stressful. My daughter, because she goes to kindy, yeah that would be sad if she wasn’t able to go.

I had my daughter when I was 17. She’s amazing. I love her so much. She’s so cute, and it’s just so cool to watch her grow up. Hopefully, I can give her a better life than I had myself. Not that it was too bad, but you know, you always want what’s best for your child.

Definitely her, and being around family. I value that a lot. It really humbles yourself, and makes you feel at home when you’re around people that you love. Definitely, so supportive. I don’t think I’d be here doing what I like, beauty therapy especially, if I didn’t have the support of friends and family. Especially being a young mum, it’s hard.

I grew up in Papakura, been there all my life. It was fun, I had a good time, yeah it was fun. There was a lot going on in Papakura. I could say that, you know, it builds character, I think, yeah.”
