Talofa lava and warm greetings from the Treasured Islands of the South Pacific, Samoa!

I was born and raised in Auckland, New Zealand by my parents and am the eldest of 3

daughters. I am 20 years of age and am proud and honoured to be the representative of

Samoa at the Miss South Pacific Pageant this year.

 I am pursuing a Bachelor conjoint of Law and Arts at the University of Auckland. My future endeavour is to continue on to a higher qualification and become a successful judge.

I am an active member of our Youth Group and also a choir tutor at Papatoetoe Methodist Church in New Zealand.

In 2009, I was given the opportunity, along with 30 other individuals, to travel around India for 3 weeks. The experience shifted my level of consciousness in terms of the developing world and its constant changes, the diversity of rich and poor, the educated and literate and the haves and have-nots. It became evident to me the needs and threats that are also prevalent in our part of the world, especially if we don’t develop sustainably.

I therefore take the opportunity as an ambassador to promote and strengthen our distinctive values and also consider our ever-changing world and how it may add-value to the lives of our people and region.

Aside from my goals in life, I am passionate about music and playing kilikiti (Samoan cricket) and volleyball. I also enjoy spending time with family and friends.
