Precious comes from Filipino and NZ European heritage. With a passion for drama and acting, her dream is to one day attend the Toi Whakare Drama School, after completing her university studies.

Precious has a keen sense of community and reaching out to those who face hard life circumstances. She has two other siblings supported by her parents. Her father has health challenges that prevent him from working so her mother manages several jobs. Precious is keenly aware of the love and support her parents have given her and one day hopes to graduate in their honour. Sports and drama play a huge part in her life, as well as her Catholic faith and community.
