From the Sir Peter Blake Trust website:
The Sir Peter Blake Trust Dream Team is a group of inspirational Kiwi leaders who every year aim to inspire thousands of Kiwi kids to follow their dreams. They visit schools to tell their stories, plant seeds of inspiration, and encourage young New Zealanders to have big dreams and back themselves to make them happen.
Today in Wa Ako the Y13s were joined by the International Students to hear from Dream Team member, Pengbo Jiang. He is also a old-boy of Newlands College. He was an International Student about 15 years ago and since then he has made a big impact in the community through his work in immigration law and his volunteering and mentoring of individuals and groups.
Pengbo challenged students to believe in themselves, their abilities and their potential. He talked about the importance of believing in yourself, the power of saying “I can do it” and being open to opportunities.
