Tanya Unkovich, Personal Consultant and mentor, born in Dargaville in 1964 says:
Some of my greatest achievements has been to author four books, all about how to overcome adversity and master resilience. The content of the books taken from life experiences. Being widowed at 40 years of ages and overcoming grief, to finding personal greatness and never giving up.
I am one of two New Zealanders to be interviewed by Dr Robert Schuller at the Crystal Cathedral in California upon the publication of my first books.
