Chloe Holden-Longin nominated Tina Longin
A single mother of two, who provides and care for my sister and I. She's mangaged to take us overseas twice by herself despite being anything but wealthy. She was a teacher for 20 years before challenging her dream and buying her own business. She's battles mental and physical illness but it doesn't stop her.
Carol Rogers nominated Madelaine Rogers
Madelaine is an unstoppable woman. She is a Masters degree student studying to become a speech and language therapist in Christchurch. She had "the worst skull fracture in 30 years" according to her doctor. Instead of giving up on doing her Master's degree, she continued to study full time and got high marks in spite of terrible fatigue. She still has two more years of studying to do. She has remained optimistic. While in the brain injury residential rehabilitation centre she played the piano for the long term residents. One blind gentleman had not been out of his room for 3 years due to mental health issues, but he came to be with Madelaine and listen to her play from the heart. They all especially enjoyed her rendition of the NZ national anthem. Maddy snowboards and surfs in spite of the effects of Traumatic Brain Injury.
Carmel Leonard nominated Kath Cooney
Kath was born within the echoes of the Melbourne Olympic Games Marathon. She has been achieving great things ever since.
After graduating in Math-Science education, she married and had 9 children, adopted one more along the way, and worked full-time in Secondary education until the twins in her 8th pregnancy. Knowing that she could contribute more, she started a Social work degree part-time and graduated about the time of her last daughter's birth.
Kath has been working for many years with a NGO whose mission is to assist refugee survivors of torture in Australia. In that capacity she has enabled refugees from Myanmar to find a community voice and have their language accepted as a Year 12 language for students. She has more recently guided a new study into immigrant uptake of Early Learning, and initiated a series of programs to encourage ethnic communities to use Pre-School acceptance as an entry to a wider community involvement.
While her children are blossoming into high achieving and worthwhile adults, she is mentoring game-changing people in gender diversity, medical ethics and law. She also hosts a weekly open house, known as Free Feed Friday, where family and friends, and often their friends as well, can get together for good food, great company, fabulous conversation and a lot of love. She is now, has always been, and I hope, will continue to be #unstoppable.
Christine Davies nominated Trish Partidge
I am so proud of my younger sister who supported me through my cancer treatment despite working, raising two children and completing a law degree all at once! I have always believed she can achieve anything she sets her mind to, and last Monday I witnessed her first Jury case as a lawyer. It was an exhilarating experience and an inspiration to see her thrive in such a fast paced and intellectual debate. The case spanned over two days and she won - she is truly #unstoppable!
Delaney Bertrand nominated Nerina Stephens
My mum is unstoppable because she has faced so many battles;
My dad passing away before I was born, her dad having alzheimers, cancer twice (the first time being told she only had six months to live and beating it! And when it came back for round two, beating it again!), the Canterbury earthquakes, an abusive relationship, her estranged husband passing away unexpectedly among many more things, and yet she wakes up every day and puts a smile on her face no matter how hard it may seem, and being an absolute rock for myself and putting everyone else before her. She is my everything and I love her so much, she amazes me each and every day how she carries on and fights not only for herself but for everyone else around her. That's why she is unstoppable, because she really, truely is.
