Door's open for young Maori leaders - Faumuina

9:15 am on 24 December 2010

Former world discus champion Beatrice Faumuina says the door is open to Maori who want to be part of a new initiative aimed at developing leaders.

The 36-year-old Olympian has been chosen to head the Best Pasifika Leadership Academy and Charitable Foundation, a spinoff from a long-established south Auckland private training establishment.

Ms Faumuina told Waatea News the new leadership diploma will challenge students individually, as well as focus on culture and teamwork.
