Tama Koia

Tama Koia comes from Gisborne (Ngati Porou) and has spent a large portion of his life here. He went through the plant-based diet programme in 2014 and managed to improve his type II diabetes to the point where he no longer needs to use insulin.

He has since become a passionate advocate of the plant-based diet, and continues to work with rangatahi to help promote health and wellness.
