Carly Ohia

Kia Ora, I am Carly and I come from a small town called Reporoa. During my primary years I went to Broadlands School and did my intermediate years at Reporoa College. At 17 years old I am now in my last year of high school at Rotorua Girls High. My story is all about basketball and small town life.  This year has and will have been a huge year for me. One of my proudest achievements I was able to do this year when I traveled across the world to play basketball for the NZ U17 Women’s Team.
