Quotes

"If a new banking branch can come here and build from scratch; when a totally new Countdown - one of the most expensive in New Zealand I've been told - is built from the ground up; when the BP petrol station can upgrade and refurbish; then these companies must have faith in the future of Dargaville" she says
"But Piri is always up for it, he's great to work with. The scene in Wynyard Quarter was a lot of fun" she says
"We are truly excited to go on this journey and to invite women, as well as the men, to pop into the Pink Caravan with their questions."
"She was awesome. Since she's come back, it's almost like she's seen the light. She was pretty focused before she left, but it's like now she's become inspired to train harder."
