I was asked what do I hope for South Auckland.

I hope that one day our people understand that South Auckland is a place full of raw talent and love.
That one day instead of saying that they couldn’t make it because of where they’re from, they use South Auckland as motivation to succeed.

I hope that one day the media get it right about us. That they show how much we’ve grown as a whole, and the amount of positive change that has been made.

I hope that one day people who don’t live out South realise we aren’t just window washers and criminals but a place full of deadline meeters and high achievers.
Communities full of tradition and hope.

And this is where it all begins.

This is how Southside will rise.

Confidence. Alofa. Reciprocity. Resilience. Respect.

What does leadership mean to you? And who are the leaders in your life?
Heads Held High brings together 60 young leaders from nine South Auckland schools to re-story the world they live in.

Watch the young leaders of South Auckland walk with their Heads Held High.
