Ko Sharntelle Cassady tõku ingoa.
Ko Ngāpuhi rāua Ngati Porou õku iwi.
Sharn is a bubbly, glass-half-full mix of aroha, light and passion woven with Māori whakapapa.
She utilises her spoken word platform to speak her pono - her truth, and advocate for greater awareness on mental health, political wrongdoings and Indigenous rights.
With a style that's a cross between spoken word activism and Tony Robins with a tāmoko she defines a good piece as one that slaps you in the face with real talk, empowers and embraces you all at once.
