When Chervonne Taylor arrives at a job, she often gets “kia ora whaea, kia ora auntie”. She had already had a career in banking and owned a butchery with her husband, Stuff reports, before deciding to chase her dream job, graduating as a police officer at 44. And the Waikato constable is urging others to do the same, especially wāhine Māori, saying she brings Māori values to the job. “I am showing I am Māori. I am in uniform but I am trying to tell you I am here to help.”
