Soraya is passionate about sport and active play in the community. She is a Physiotherapist currently doing work at her local High school, working in the community and seeing private clientele. Previously she lived in Dunedin working with high performance athletes, provincial and national teams.
Basketball and Rugby have been her main sports playing on both a national and international stage. She has returned home after 11 years and is now coaching rugby at her old high school and running clinics with club rugby.
Soraya is a founding board member of the Pasifika Physiotherapy Association and is looking to broaden her skills in governance and how she can better give back to the community.
