Talofa lava, my name is Taeao Napo. I’m a proud Samoan, representing the beautiful villages of Satui Malufilufi and Falelatai.
A husband and father of four children, standing on the shoulders of Anitelea (dad) and Vae (mum) Napo with the prayers of my grandparent, I come as one but stand with a village of warriors who have paved the way for my life’s journey.
Faith, family, and culture have always been important to me which has given me the passion to help our Pasifika discover the importance of values and embracing our cultural identity.
Joining the Le Va aiga, as Project Coordinator for Le Va’s violence prevention programme, Atu-Mai, I have the privilege of journeying alongside our Pasifika fathers to talanoa, share stories, and support one another to enable them to raise thriving and flourishing families.
