I'm TA, I'm 11, I'm in year 8. I like school, to play netball, kapa haka & Beyonce. My favorite subjects are maths and languages, I like how they challenge me. I love reading, like Anne of Green Gables & books based on true stories. I don't hear anyone when I'm reading. Last year my teacher told me to apply for a full scholarship to attend St Cuthberts College. I passed the first & second assessments, but I missed out by 2 points to get entry. My school, my teachers, my family were really proud of me and I felt very proud too. I'm doing good at school, but I've slipped because it's hard, 8 of us living in our van. Its annoying, I don't have much space. Its hard to do my homework with my family around, I don't really like it, but I'm safe inside. We have lots of blankets to keep warm. We've been living in our van for 6 months. We had a house but we had to get out because the landlord made us. Then my dad lost his job. So yeah. Then my mum got a full time job. So yeah. We shower and eat breakfast there. Then we all have jobs, someone has to clear out the van, brush it out, pack all the blankets and kai away, and wipe down the windows. I have to make 6 lunches, its ok but sometimes there's barely anything. Its really very stressful for my parents. Since we've been here, all of us really want a house now. I don't have to make our lunches, the Aunty's make them at night. I like sleeping in a bed again, going to school everyday, the Magics netball team & reading. I love reading. My wish is to have a room, to share with my little sister. A library next to my bed & to go to Waikato University and get a degree in Anthropology.

Catherine Delahunty MP's Member's Bill can stop compulsory land acquisitions from whenua Māori. According to 2009 figures, less than 5% of land in Aotearoa New Zealand is Māori customary and freehold land - any further unwanted Government confiscations would be a mistake.
