Ko te mea nui

Tihei mauri ora!


Kia ora e te whānau. I’m Allie Miles, born in Te Awakairangi in 1996 and have always proudly called it home. I’m the daughter of a strong first generation New Zealander & carry whānau whakapapa to Scotland & Ireland.

I have a background in Communications and was involved in youth development programmes for three years before joining the Ignite Sport team in January 2018.  I love journeying with young people and hearing their stories. I strongly believe in the power of awhi, connection and belonging.  One of the most treasured parts of my mahi is witnessing young people beginning to believe in themselves, and then growing in confidence to accomplish things they previously thought were impossible.

The largest aspects of my role with Ignite Sport are coordinating the Oho Ake programme at Naenae College & driving our online communications.  If you would like to connect, hear more about my mahi or ask questions, please get in touch.
