Your Voice Matters

Presentation: Your Voice Matters

Intended audience: Year 7 –13
Duration: 1 hour
Technology: projector, screen, sound.
Description: This presentation shows why storytelling is important, using examples of New Zealand and Pasifika storytellers. I also share my own writing journey – of growing up in Māngere, South Auckland, and wanting to be a writer but not thinking I could do it because of my background. I show the young people that their stories are important and need to be heard and that if they want to, they can publish books too.
