Iso with the Whānau

This week we catch up with some humans of Te Whare Wānanga o Waikato and see how they’re going with iso!

Khaysh: “Rāhui Pōkeka 828”

Whaea Tyler: “Too close to Uni for my liking.”

Fave shows/movies to binge?

Whaea Tyler: “So I’ve delved a bit into K-drama (Korean drama lol)”

Mikayla: “Peaky Foooooockin Bliiiinnndddeerrrs 🍸”

What’s been your guilty pleasure?

Whaea Tyler: “Napping, when I should be doing mahi. Eating, when I’ve already eaten”

Oi: “Our zinu catch-ups we have, it’s like having a party with no mess and you can leave when you want”
