MEET THE TEAM
I’m Nicole, and I have been a part of Rotaract Wellington since 2018 when a friend brought me along to a meeting. Since then, I have become steadily more involved in the Rotary world, meeting lots of new people, making friends, attending events, and participating in and helping run projects. Currently balancing the VP role with full-time work and study, I value community and “giving back” and Rotaract helps to realise that. I love that even a small group of like-minded individuals can achieve so much for our community.
Kia Ora! My name is Tessa and I’m super excited to be the President of Rotaract Wellington this year. I am currently working as a relief teacher. I have a background in neuroscience and primary school teaching. I first joined Rotaract while I was studying in Dunedin back in 2016 and haven’t looked back. I have always valued giving back to others and helping out my community where I can. Rotaract has enabled me to form lifelong friendships, make connections with a range of local people and organisations and positively contribute to the communities I live in. I am thankful to have discovered Rotary International and grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of it.
I'm Hamish, a recent Victoria University of Wellington and Massey University graduate. Originally from Ngahinapouri, near Hamilton, I now call Wellington home. I first discovered in Rotaract in 2018 when I undertook a Rotary-sponsored research project ahead of the 2021 centenary of Rotary in New Zealand. Impressed by the role of Rotary in shaping the communities that we live in today, as well as the fellowship offered by club membership, I joined the Wellington Rotaract Club and have since become steadily more involved in club life. Rotaract is a force for positive change, and that's something definitely worth being a part of.
