Hi, my name is Labrina Shirley and I 'm a 21 year old mother of a beautiful 6 month old son. I am currently in my final year of Grade 12 at Oskayak High School. I will be graduating this year after facing many struggles in my life. On July 1st, 2011 some of my graduating class will be leaving for an educational trip to New Zealand. I consider this to be a once in a lifetime opportunity. We will be travelling to New Zealand for cultural purposes and are hoping to learn how the Maori people have been able to retain their culture.
