Her interests include dance, drawing, reading and baking as well as everything musical. As well as ‘ukulele and guitar Anna is a capable pianist and is now also learning drums. Her song writing commenced last year, as a wellness taonga for a young cancer sufferer.

Anna’s intermediate school enjoyed learning and singing last year’s winning song, and she made the decision to enter Hook Line and Sing-a-long in 2021. During the summer holidays Anna took a trip around the South Island and her song started to take shape, with her ‘ukulele in the car. Her success this year and the recording experience mean that Anna intends to write and record more. Congratulations, Anna.
