Hello! My name is Luisa and I come all the way Eua, Tonga. I also have a parts of Samoan pride from grandfathers bloodline, Mei Lama. Mei is my mothers father which also Oneahi Lama is known to be our grandmother to myself and my cousins. I am proud to be to take this oppurtunity to express my community and personal living. The saying, “God and Tonga are my inheritance”, is significant in my life. God is a loving father and is important to me throughout everything in this university. Tonga is a loving and friendly land. Though I was brought in New Zealand, but I still count as Tongan girl. I am proud to be a Tongan girl.
