Since doing this programme I have been more focussed on how I can change my way of thinking and expressing my feelings to others.
This course has helped me understand who I am, the importance of belonging and being loved and being cared for and having positive people around to support us as a group.
Tai Wātea has changed my life because I no longer hang out with people who are really not my friends. It made me realise that I had to get rid of the negative people in my life, even when it is hard. They will only bring you down and stop you from changing yourself for the better.
If I had not done this program, I wouldn’t have found such a sense of fulfilment in my life. I found fulfilment here because I feel that I belong and that I matter to people.
