About Me: 

Hi from New Zealand.

I'm an active member of the Hastings Baha'i Community, and as such I have a vision for Global Unity. I'm a gifted writer who loves painting pictures in peoples minds with words.

I'm a 45year old solo parent with a 17 year old son. I volunteer at the Heretaunga Women's Centre in Hastings New Zealand.

I also have a part-time job as co-editor for Sharing The Caring Trust.
I'm also in the process of launching my own computer graphics and design business, called Wings Of Joy Resources, where I create almost anything from C.V's to Websites.

My Passions: 
True unity accepts diversity
My Challenges: 
Allowing myself to just be
My Vision for the Future: 
Global unity
My Areas of Expertise:
