I never thought it was possible to make money through online business and forex trade, until I met Mr Brian Hashemi , I was curious when he told me the procedures on how to trade, and I gave it a chance and made my first profits, and was so happy, and now it has been my source of income, you can make money too. Contact him on the Name below 👇👇👇 Mr Brian Hashemi

Day 2 of the ASB Polyfest done ✅

Our Le Va team are having a great time at the Manukau Sportsbowl supporting Pasifika youth through our I AM module at www.atumai.nz to embrace their Pasifika values through their actions and words.

We want to push the message that Violence is Not Our Culture and understanding and displaying the true intent of our Pasifika values helps us to uplift that message.

Fa’afetai to all those who visited us today, we’ll be back tomorrow same time same place so come check us out and come take some photos of yourself & your mates in our fabulous photo booth fit for kings and queens of Oceania 🌊
