People of Sport Media Series, by Harbour Sport ActivAsian
Harbour Sport ActivAsian is proud to present the People of Sport Media Series, This is a new platform for sportspersons of Asian descent to influence other Asian New Zealanders. People of Sport intends to highlight our local athletes/coaches/referees/administrators/supporters, and different popular Asian sports and leagues to further connect New Zealand with Asia. This series will not only acknowledge the contributions and successes but also the barriers and difficulties individuals have overcome to further inspire the younger generation.
Interviews/ Case Studies
The first type of post will be done in an interview format where the story will influence and inspire other Asian New Zealanders. This will help educate and allow those individuals that may be struggling with specific barriers to be proud of who they are and thrive within themselves and the environment. Everyone has a story to tell, living amongst different cultures in a country can always be challenging as that serves up a cage of barriers to face. By interviewing those and sharing those experiences (successes and hardships) we can not only educate them but most importantly inspire.
The second type of post will also be a chance to educate those about different parts of Asia and bring Asia closer to Kiwis, this will expose individuals to different sports, cultures and leagues.
Professional Athlete Profiles
Lastly, the third type of post we will share will be one that showcases famous Asian athletes that have paved their own way through their obstacles, we will help share their story about what being different means.
We want to be able to inspire our younger generations that may be struggling with specific barriers to be proud of who they are and thrive within themselves and the environment.
If you know anyone interested in sharing their story or would like to nominate anyone, please email JoshW@harboursport.co.nz
