Kathryn Ruge

"In conjunction with PRINZ, I created this short clip to encourage people to overcome their fear of failure and take the next step, however small, in their te reo journey."

We recognise Kathryn Ruge for the video she shared for Te Wā Tuku Reo Māori, encouraging others to give it a go. She is open about her journey - for 8 years she has been learning - and shares her experience trying again and again to learn te reo Māori through different methods. In Kathryn's words "take a small step today - however small".
