The event was put on by Sisters United, a South Auckland-based organisation started by world-renowned choreography, Parris Goebel, and her sisters Kendal and Narelle.

Sisters United aims to provide creative programmes and services to young Pacific and Maori women aged 12 - 21 in Auckland.

On the event's panel was Kendal Collins - Co-Founder / Director, Sisters United; Tasha Hohaia - Maori Party candidate 2017, Singer; Madeleine Chapman Co-Author for ‘My Life, My Fight’ Steven Adams autobiography and writer for Spinoff; Casey Hunt - Product Manager; Lifestyle Banking Products for Westpac; and Corbyn Taulealea-Huch - The Royal Family choreographer and dancer.

The guest panel shared stories from their lives about growing, challenges they faced as well as answering questions from the floor.

It ended with a dance-off to win Parris Goebel’s new book, Young Queen, and Steven Adams’ autobiography, My Life, My Fight.
