The summer break is great for a lot of reasons. The sun is shining and you’ve got all the time in the world to do whatever you want with your mates. However it’s easy to feel like you’ve got too much time on your hands and the long days drag on. Sometimes all it takes is a little inspiration, which is where #JustBounceThings comes in.
"It is so important for us to respect our roots, especially the culture, heritage, and wealth of knowledge our indigenous people hold. We are a diverse nation, with similar and differing opinions and beliefs, but it is crucial for us to understand our history and background and to honour the Māori people and everything they have done to enrich our nation."
"Making a difference could be anything. It doesn't have to be big: you could just be helping someone with their homework or helping with some jobs around the house. Although CYC and Bounce give me a platform to make a difference, I know that I don’t have to be out with CYC or Bounce to make a difference. I could go out and make a difference in just one person's day, and that would mean I succeed in what I had set out to do."
