Hi I’m Zanele and I live in Pakuranga Auckland. My family moved to New Zealand from the Kingdom of Swaziland in Southern Africa in 2005, we were three then, now we are five:) I enjoy the multicultural nature of New Zealand and I’m always drawn to people new in the area or new in the country. In 2012, my family and I lived in Tauranga and I was part of the Tauranga Regional Multicultural Council and the Newcomers Network there. It was a beautiful experience that when we decided to come back to Auckland I looked for something similar. I am currently the social secretary in the executive of African communities Forum Inc(Acofi.) I’m looking forward to meeting Auckland East Newcomers and locals who are happy to share their experiences with others.
