What is your favorite childhood memory? Hmmm well my most favorite and funniest childhood memory happened at the age of 3. I resided in my Mum’s village on the island of Savaii in Samoa with my older siblings, and according to my Mum one of my favorite things to do was run around the yard butt naked. Now once every month my Mum and sisters would head into town (an hour’s bus ride away) to do the monthly shopping, and for any kid growing up in Samoa your Mum returning from town was a super exciting thing…it meant Treats!! And man I LOVE TREATS!! Upon returning from such a trip one sunny day, my Mum and sisters hopped off the bus and were greeted by a very hyper and happy NAKED Samoan 3 year old, Me. While juggling bags of groceries my older sister, Peneueta managed to scoop me up and carried me a few meters towards our fale and after giving me my bag of treats and telling me to go put some pants on, I happily ran off. However as my sister was putting the grocery bags down, a faint foul smell began to singe her nostrils and that’s when she noticed something that looked like a lump of melted chocolate on her arm. Needless to say it wasn’t chocolate! Apparently I got so excited to get my treats off my Mum and sisters that day, I ended up thanking them with a Chocolate treat of my own.

What word makes you laugh every time? With English being my second language, ALL words make me laugh especially when my friends or family mispronounce them or say it wrong – we call it being FRESH or FOB’N OUT!! Bahahaha. I Fob Out all the time, but be warned if you FOB out near me, I will laugh AT You, and then WITH You.

If you could be an animal what would you be? I’ve got a Joke that reminds me of this question:

Three friends were standing on a magic cliff one day where they were greeted by a powerful Wizard. The Wizard asked, “If you could wish to be any animal what would you be? Just shout it out loud and jump off the cliff and you will transform into whatever you wish for.”

First guy: I wish to be a TIGER! He jumps off the cliff, hits the water and out leaps a giant Siberian Tiger. Second guy: I wish to be an EAGLE! He jumps off, hits the water and out flies a beautiful Golden Eagle. Last guy: WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE.

Anyways, if I was ever an animal it would have to be a UNICORN – rare, mysterious, my tears can heal wounds and I get to gallop over rainbows whenever I want.

Who is your hero? It will have to be My beautiful Mum – because A Mother is she who can take the place of all others, but whose place no one else can take.

Would you rather never speak again, OR always have to say what’s on your mind? Easy, Always have to say what’s on my mind – it might get me into trouble, but it’s better than not speaking up at all.
