Pat Buckley - a drug cousellor and St John's attendant. He and his wife started Amped4Life. His words of leadership wisdom were:

1. Enjoy life because when you grow up you stay as an adult

for the rest of your life

2. Don't be afraid to ask for help

3. Don't let your past shape your future - what you do now in your life could shape the way you live in the future4. You are influenced by the choices you make in life - make good decisions.

Nick Tuitasi is an ex-policeman. His leadership word was TRY.

- T is for truth - tell the truth all the time.

- R is for respect - you should be the one to respect others first.
