WSU – Issue 8

Director Bio

Kia ora, bwanji, and many more world greetings to you!


I’m an Afro-Kiwi gal that’s incredibly proud of my Zambian heritage but also really proud to call Aotearoa and the mighty Waikato my home. I’m in my third year of a conjoint Bachelor of Laws with Honours and a Bachelor of Business majoring in Finance. When I’m not putting hard mahi into my conjoint, you can catch me confronting cheeky first years that insist on calling me an aunty. You also might catch me hitting a new deadlift PR at Unirec or jamming to afro-beats, spinning yarns or chowing down a donburi at Bongo. 

On a more serious note, this year I have the absolute privilege of being the WSU Vice-President. I say privilege because I’m incredibly passionate about students having an empowering university experience and ensuring that students are at the center of every decision made by our University. To have the opportunity to exercise this passion in my everyday work is a privilege. 


As WSU Vice-President I chair Te Pou Whirinaki (The Student Advisory Council). I am also on various committees such as the Academic Board, the Student Services Governance Committee (SSGC) and the Special Consideration Committee. 

Kotahitanga, empowerment, advocacy and wholesome vibes are four principles that will continue to underpin my time on this year’s board.
