About Me:
I'm from the territory of American Samoa but I am currently living in Hilo, HI. I am an islander who has never set foot in the states until 2015. I love to dance Samoan dances, sing Samoan songs, play guitar (I'm still a beginner), and babysit dogs. Anyways, I'm excited to see what summer has in store for me and cannot wait to explore.
