Arabela is currently heading into her third year of an LLB/BA conjoint majoring in Criminology with a minor in Māori Development at the Auckland University of Technology. She has a developed awareness of cultural sensitivity through her experiences growing up as Māori and Samoan in South Auckland. Her devotion to furthering the success rates of tauira Māori and Pasifika law students is highlighted through the committees that she sits on as the Educations officer on both AUT Law Students Society and Te Aro Ture AUT Māori Law Students Society. Arabela is passionate in ensuring that minority communities are able to access the right education and support networks in the field of law so that accessing legal services are made available to each and every person in Aotearoa, while committing to being a voice of hope and reason to those without a voice.
