E ngā mana, e ngā reo, e ngā karangatia o te motu, nei rā te mihi ki a koutou. He uri au no Te Tai Tokerau. Ko Ngāpuhi rāua ko Ngāti Wai ōku iwi. Ko Whakapara tāku marae matua.
Engari, i tipu ake ahau ki roto i te rohe o Waikato i ngā taone o Tokoroa me Kirikiriroa. He tauira tau tuawha ahau, e ako ana ki te kura whaiora o Te Whanganui-a-Tara. I tenei tau ko au te Tumuaki o Te Oranga.
Kia Ora, my name is Chayce Glass, the 2017 Tumuaki of Te Oranga. I am a descendent of the northern people of Ngāpuhi and Ngāti Wai, who grew in the Waikato region. I am very passionate about looking after the welfare of my fellow Māori medical student’s and look forward to the challenges the role of Tumuaki will bring.
