"A talented entertainer and storyteller, who has taken her many skills into the educational profession, Marama Fox impresses with her vitality, her enthusiasm and her fervent belief in whanau" said Ms Glavish.

"Marama is an experienced educational leader, who has taught at kohanga reo, kura kaupapa Maori, wharekura, public secondary schooling, and more recently as an advisor in the Ministry of Education" said Ivy Raroa, Electorate Chair for Ikaroa Rawhiti.

We are very excited about the quality representation she will offer for Ikaroa Rawhiti".

"Over the last few years my role in promoting Ka Hikitia, and Tataiako has continued to motivate me to look closely at the concept of transformation- of Maori succeeding as Maori" said Marama Fox.

"As a proud mama of nine children this and Whanau Ora has always resonated with our whanau, as a model for breeding success. I want to dedicate the best years of my career to truly embedding Whanau Ora into our national psyche -and Ikaroa Rawhiti is the ideal environment to place my energy".
