You can be whoever you want to be. Just because society has placed you in a certain group or category, does not mean that you can't succeed and fulfil your dreams. People like Noa are breaking the mould and inspiring those around them, no matter who.
18 year old Noa Woolloff is Head Boy of Aotea College, a father to his 16 month old daughter Kyla, and an aspiring social entrepreneur.
Noa is passionate about inspiring young people to chase their dreams and become the best they can be no matter what their backgrounds are.
Young parents need to break out of the social stigma that can follow becoming a young parent in New Zealand. Facing the judgment first hand, Noa believes that stereotypes may hold you back, but they can also push you forward in a positive way.
He believes that age doesn’t define if you’re going to a good parent, being a good parent defines if you’re going to be a good parent!
