About Laura

My name is Laura Makker and I am the youngest of seven children. I grew up on a dairy farm in the Waikato region just outside of a small town called Morrinsville. I have recently moved to the North Shore in order to attend Massey University, studying a Bachelor of Speech and Language Therapy. In my spare time, I enjoy dancing, spending time with family and helping out in the community. I enjoy walks outdoors and learning more about the New Zealand culture. I take Te Reo classes in order to learn more about the Maori culture and deepen my understanding of their people and their importance in Aotearoa. I am also passionate about developing countries and not for profit organisations. I am a World Vision Youth Ambassador for 2016 which will include speaking at schools and leadership conferences, helping run and promote the 2016 forty-hour famine and working a lot with the refugee crisis.
