Niah Lovo

 PHAB/YES Disability Resource Centre

Niah is a major advocate for pasifika youth with disabilities. She has been a part of many different pasifika projects within the disability sector, and is a resounding voice when it comes to the nature of pasifika youth with disabilities and how they fit into their families, aiga, communities and cultures. She helped found Phusion, an all-abilities pasifika dance group that advocates for inclusiveness and cultural identity for pasifika youth with disabilities. She is also working alongside Ministry of Education to help make New Zealand's education system more accessible and adaptable to the many different learning types of people with disabilities.
