Talofa Lava, My name is May Sinafea and I am a yr 10 student currently attending Tamaki College. I am proud to be full Samoan and I have been living in Glen Innes for over 5 years now. I was born on the 11th of June 2003, in the Christchurch Hospital. I enjoy playing netball but my biggest passion is singing. My favorite subject or a subject that I´m mostly good at is mainly English. I just love reading and writing!
Both my parents are full Samoan. My father is from the village of Safotu which is located in Savaii and my mother is from the village of Falealili in Apia, Upolu, My parents are very tight in their culture, I know this because whenever we are at home they would growl us if we ever talk English. They would want us to speak Samoan to get us use to the Culture and Language because we are so plastic.
Everything I do at school, I do it all for my family but mainly for my parents because their main dream is to have one of their children attend University. So I just want to give back, for everything they did for me. Since my brothers not in school anymore, I´m like the only one left!
What are my values? My skills are listening carefully when someone is speaking to me. Working well with others, mainly those that I don't usually work with, so basically like Team Work. And my last skill is Participating. For example contributing to all that we do and making sure that I do it to the best of my ability.
What are my values? Well my main values this year is honesty, why? Because if your being honest with your peers and mainly yourself, then there's nothing to worry about. It's just like Integrity! Next is making sure that I am focused and just ready to learn, instead of mucking around and just being unfocused during classes. And my last value is making sure my family's okay. For example looking after my siblings, but the main one is my parents because you never know when God's gonna call them and when he does at least I have done something to pay back from everything they have done for me.
My proudest achievement for this year would have to be when we attended the Elicit Dream Academy and I had to stand up in front of 500 or more students and also the teachers from different schools, and say thankyou to one of the speakers there on this day. This was my proudest achievement because being a shy, Samoan girl from G.I is really hard. Mainly standing on a stage! But I was proud that I actually did it with no regrets!
What is my proudest achievement?
* Lawyer *Councilor *Nurse My 1st Career idea is Lawyer because I really want to try something different, something I didn't really think of doing! My 2nd Career idea is Councilor because I love helping others with their problems. And my last one is Nurse because I love making sure people are okay and healthy *winkwink ahahaha
