You cannot stand back if you see an opportunity grab it! Because you don’t know when that will ever come back again and I think in this COVID world that we’re living in this has just reinforced that. Life is just too short way too short so if someone hands you a harmonica and says do you want to give it go don’t say nah,,, give it a go give anything a go Daniel Faitaua President Foreign Press Association in London

Episode 3 – Fa’anana Efeso Collins, the Path to Mayor of Auckland, Service to the Community, and Mentoring the Next Pasifika Politicians

It’s about humility and a desire to serve others for everyone’s benefit. It can’t just be my family that reap the rewards of well-paying jobs so that we can afford to get a mortgage for the apartment that we live in today. That should be everybody’s story and it’s not, in this city.Fa'anana Efeso Collins

Episode 5 – Josephine Bartley, Samoan Auckland Councillor: “We Have Growth and With Growth Comes Change”

To be honest the change comes when you have different voices around the table with different backgrounds, and it’s only recently that that change in decision makers has happened. So the change is happening but its’s happening slowly but it is changing.”Auckland City Councillor, Josephine Bartley
