Navigating the way

Navigating the waters of post-secondary education can be daunting, stressful and anxiety causing, to say the least, and if it wasn’t for the people that I had around me as mentors to guide me in the right direction I would not be where I am today.

Reciprocity, community, and support are a few values that form the cornerstones of the Pacific/ Polynesian culture. As I Pacific women I try to adhere to these values in the relationships I tend. I have benefited immensely from Pacific academics giving me their time and wisdom about how to navigate academia.

I believe it is important to give back to future generations to help them succeed not only in academia but also in life. Whether you want to have a quick chat about this week or the next five years I’m happy to be that sounding board. 

Feel free to contact me at any time if you want to have a chat!
