In episode 9 we kōrero with Tiana Metuarau - a Māori/Kuki Airani student athlete who uses her platform to highlight the beauty of her Polynesian whakapapa.
For the first time ever, Tiana publicly opens up about overcoming anxiety and body image issues and how this has been amplified through her netball journey.
She talks to us about what it was like playing semi-professional netball at 15 years old while having to balance high school and bringing Te Ao Māori into her netball environments.
