Through self-discovery,  exploring behaviours   and working together, Impact helps young adults to own their story, find their voice and grow through life’s challenges and changes.


Kia ora!
I am Shanelle, a thriving millennial, a working professional and a creator of ONE EPIC, BOLD, MASSIVE VISION. Some people say I am a positive, quiet introvert, but I’m really a rebel by nature.

I’m on a journey to reach and inspire our young kiwi generation.  For teenagers who are misunderstood, forgotten or disconnected, who are craving a sense of belonging and want to speak up – I want them to see their worth and potential, and to realise their dreams. I want to lead by example and be the voice for the adults of tomorrow.

I know what it’s like to struggle, change career and to find the right posse or group of friends. My story began over ten years ago when I joined the military, and then ventured into humanitarian work and event management, before I found my ultimate passion – youth work. It was fun, but the feeling of what-if never went away.

So, Impact was born. A place for this generation to belong, to feel supported and heard, but most of all, to have what they need to thrive. Partnering with schools, parents and communities, I want to help create massive change in the way we view and value young people, and, more importantly, how they view and value themselves.

Will you join me in a movement that matters? The world needs your impact!

Our mission is to encourage young people to cultivate their creativity and make their impact in the world.
