Relax with Serenity Cushions

A growing number of Pacific students around New Zealand are saying “yes” to being involved in the Young Enterprise Scheme (YES) and gaining entrepreneurial skills.
As part of the YES programme, students set up and run a real business, and each YES company creates their product or service and gets to experience what it is like to go to market.
Nationwide, there are 485 Pacific students participating in YES within 92 Pacific companies this year.
In the coming weeks and months, the Ministry for Pacific Peoples (MPP) will support the Pacific companies by showcasing Pacific companies involved in YES.
This will help boost the teams’ profiles and hopefully help turn followers into customers of Pacific companies’ YES products.
Meet Pacific YES team Serenity Cushions, from Auckland’s Manurewa High School.
Serenity Cushions is a culturally diverse business, which was inspired to create cushions that are inclusive of the Pacific, Maori and many other cultures featured in the South Auckland community.
The cushions reflect the cultures, values and diversity making up the society the team members are a part of.
