Our Coordinator: Zanele

I’m Zanele and I live in Flatbush, Auckland. My family moved to New Zealand from the Kingdom of ESwatini in Southern Africa in 2005. 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, so that when we decided to come back to Auckland I looked for something similar.
I am currently also part of the Genenow Financial Literacy Trust, a charity seeking to see people making wise choices with their money and realising their worth with the banks and offering practical money saving solutions to individuals and families.. I also volunteer for a charity called DaysforGirls, which empowers girls and women through quality menstrual care solutions, health education and income-generation opportunities.
I look forward to meeting Auckland East Newcomers and locals who are happy to share their experiences with others.
Thank you.
