Levi Armstrong, Bachelor of Recreation & Sport Graduate

A formal qualification means I can build a better future for my whanau, it also means I can help those less fortunate.  Just because you have been raised in a negative environment doesnt mean you can't change your life for the better of your whanau.  Live life to the fullest!
