Solo Fo’ilefutu makes her mark
Solo Fo’ilefutu, whose family hails from Onenoa American Samoa, is making her mark in the nation’s capitol through her nomination to the National Young Leaders Scholar Program in Washington, D.C.
She was nominated by her teachers, counselors, & principal based on her leadership skills and abilities, as well as her grades (GPA),which were among the highest in her class. Solo was born and raised in Fort Hood/Killeen, TX in 1997 but now resides in Anchorage Alaska with her parents & siblings.
She is the only Samoan attending the National Young Leaders Conference this year as she represents the state of Alaska and Bartlett High School. The photo is from her visit to Capitol Hill where she had a chance to meet a leader from our territory, Congressman Faleomavaega. The Young Leaders Conference runs from June 16 - 24, 2013.
Solo is the daughter of Mr. Matagimalie Faiupu Foi'lefutu (US Army Veteran) & Lagavale Ulugalu Fo’ilefutu, both of Onenoa.
