MYSTORY intern Robin Kapeteni, 20, a youth leader from Manurewa, South Auckland and integral to the development and delivery of MYSTORY, a project designed to give space to young people to share their stories is the recipient of the 2019 Pacific Emerging Leadership Youth Award at the SunPix Pacific Peoples Awards held on Friday 8 November at the ASB Showgrounds, Auckland.
Robin has contributed a youth rainbow voice and connected the rainbow community to this initiative, sharing her story with more than 200 young people throughout South Auckland. She is one of the eleven MYSTORY youth interns and a champion leader for the MYSTORY initiative. In June, Robin was recognised at the New Zealand Youth Awards, being the recipient of the Mahi Tahi - Collective Award presented by Minister for Youth Hon Peeni Henare at a celebration event held in Parliament.
SouthSeas Healthcare CEO Silao Vaisola-Sefo congratulates Robin, her parents and family and all those involved in the development of the MYSTORY project.
“This is yet another great achievement for Robin, her family and for our South Auckland community. We are very proud of Robin and incredibly lucky to have Robin as part of a diverse group of young people working with us.”
“Robin is an outstanding and exceptional young person. She is always willing to share her story and striving to make a difference for the development of the MYSTORY project and for our community and we have no doubt she will be a great leader to produce a bright future for New Zealand.”
