“Our instructor was awesome very approachable , made me feel confident with everything I was doing and learning. Big ups to the instructor who came all the way to teach us at NGA HAU E WHA MARAE, PUKEKOHE you were awesome Nga mihi. The different Scenarios did it for me, how to react and respond to everything.
