    Māui

    Māui possesses qualities like playfulness, innovative, adaptable, growth mindset, risk-taker, curiosity, problem solver, crafty, goal-oriented, active pursuit, bug fixer and collaborator. #belikemāui

    I believe that I have traits from both Mahuika and Maui in terms of learning.

    Mahuika:  patient, insightful, responsibility and protectiveness.
    Maui: adaptable, creative, growth mindset, goal-orientated and very curiosity.

            I'm more like Maui, always taking risks, backing myself and 100% ok with not knowing everything about the DT curriculum but willing learn

                I am both for sure, depending on the context!  I like to see what the end looks like but will be methodical in the way that I learn about it.

                  I would say I'm more like Mahuika but hope to be more like Maui in some ways!

                    Probably more Maui but Mahuika features :)

                      Kia ora, definitely a good mixture of both!

                        I think I am a bit like both depending on where my own understanding is at.  I like to have a cursory explore/read over then delve into more depth later.

                          I think I'm naturally more like Mahuika in that I'm patient, thoughtful, etc, but I'm challenging myself to be more of a risk-taker like Maui: just jump in and give the scary stuff a go!
