I am a New Zealander who is passionate about truth, tea, words, Jesus, creativity, social justice, friendship, faith, flowers, and grace.  I have a degree in sociology and a diploma in teaching, and have previously worked in a photo-library and at UNICEF.

Arowhenua my Gravatar is in Maori and means to ‘pay attention to, take heed of, focus on, the whenua (land)’.  Land and where you come from is very important in New Zealand both environmentally and in terms of belonging.  You will find a kiwi more likely to ask you “Where do you come from?”: Than “What do you do?”.
