SOPHIE HAKARAIA

(Ngāti Raukawa ki te Tonga, Ngāti Toa Rangatira, Te Ati Awa)

Sophie grew up on the banks of the Waikato River in Hamilton East and credits the thriving arts scene, namely theatre companies Electra and Slip of the Tongue, for igniting a passion for the Arts .

Since leaving Hamilton over 20yrs ago she has spread herself over the fashion, television and events industry including a long stint in talent management.   She is passionate about Toi Wāhine and is excited to return to where, for her, it all began.
