The Diary of a Stoge Chollonger


2006. Bebo. Boost $10 text. Snakes on a plane. And Stoge Chollonge. The biggest day of the year. Teenagers all over Aotearoa dancing about the issues that matter: racial harmony, climate change, computers taking over the world, rags to riches, dinosaurs becoming extinct by smoking.

For me it was 2011. I had changed high schools for my last year at school and it was my first (and only) time competing. It was an experience alright. Many hours were spent sitting in the Westpac Stadium teasing my hair, putting outrageous makeup on, perfecting choreography and spying on the opposition. I later became best friends at drama school with a guy who was in the school team that won in 2011. He still brings it up to this day.

An example of how intense life is:
