Pasifika Support
Student Learning

Kia orana!

I am a PhD student here at VUW (Pacific Studies) and am eager to meet Pasifika students who’d like to discuss their academic journey and any questions they have about their academic skills (writing, referencing and time management).

My research and professional work has centred on Pacific, Maori and indigenous literatures, histories and social policy but I am excited to hear about the work and interests of all Pasifika students across VUW. In the past I have held pastoral care and mentoring positions here at VUW, the University of Auckland and various government departments. I look forward to continuing that work with Student Learning and our Pasifika community here at VUW . ‘Aere mai rā!
