New Year, New Presenter. Our resolution is to be more like Emma. She is an absolute delight to have around

We are so proud to announce the safe arrival of Emma, the newest member of the Attitude family. She is the little sister that we never knew how much we needed. We can’t wait to see her achieve some key milestones as a presenter like her first time a student recognizes her at the mall and doesn’t say anything, just films her secretly and follows her around for a while.

We asked her a bit about herself so that you don’t have to lurk at the mall to find out more about this Aranui-raised communicator.

Why do you want to work at Attitude?
Oh man, it’s gonna sound so cheesy but I think the young people of Aotearoa are capable of creating greatness now and in the future. But I reckon that only happens when we work towards being the best version of ourselves. And Attitude has rad tips to help do that.

What Attitude topic would you have loved to hear as a student?
Hands down Hauora – 15 year old me would have been way less socially unco if I had some tips on my wellbeing.

What’s your most embarrassing moment at school?
The contents of my bag scattered in front of the school bus full of students. Aaaand the contents of my bag contained my undies… I dropped my undies in front of a bus load of students =(

The only job better than an Attitude presenter would be…?
A roller-coaster designer. Or an astronaut. Or a roller-coaster-designing-astronaut.

If you had a theme song you could walk out onto stage to… what would it would be?
Wannabe by Spice Girls #ziggyzigah

Describe your arch nemesis
It would be a zombie dog that has wheels for legs and can climb trees. That would be unstoppable.
