It is always a privilege to serve your community in a way that aligns with who you are and who you want to be. My experience prior to Le Va has been an adventure of many sorts from facilitating spoken word workshops within church groups, large youth conferences and rehabilitation programmes to coordinating large-scale events for school principals and a corporate workforce. Every experience has led me here to Le Va – to the space and I am grateful for it.
Whenever I introduce myself I like to make it clear that I am firstly, the Daughter of Mau’u Seve Palenapa Alefosio from the villages of Mulifanua and Leauva’a and Mele Mary Margaret Siaosi from the villages of Falefa and Faleasi’u in Samoa. And then that I am the Mother of two amazing teenagers who keep me motivated and grounded. Lastly, I am a Poet and I see the benefits of the arts and creativity as it relates to youth development and as a source of nourishment for humanity.
I am a woman of faith and try my best to be teachable in every environment and embrace every season.
