Introducing herself to the older girls with gratitude and appreciation for blessing her with the opportunity to provide Maths lessons, Lefaoali’i Unutoa Auelua-Fonoti has become a role model to the girls at the Campus of Hope.
Volunteering every Thursday at 5.30pm to tutor the girls on Mathematics, Lefaoali’i takes time out from her busy schedule to share her knowledge with the girls.
According to one of the older girls who attended the Maths class, “where we come from, we don’t really matter. However, looking up at Lefaoali’i, a person of her caliber, a Regulator and an academic, making time to teach us Maths, means a lot.
Immediately, Lefaoali’i has become one of the role models to the older girls, the survivors of violence and sexual abuse cared for at the Campus of Hope.
One only has to look at Lefaoali’is academic and professional achievements, to be amazed by her modesty to reach out and empower the older girls at the shelter through continuing education.
Lefaoali’i is an Engineer by profession and she holds a Bachelor of Engineering (Electronics) from RMIT University, Melbourne Australia and a Masters of Engineering (Engineering Management) from the University of Southern Queensland, Brisbane Australia.
To the older girls at the shelter who are being taught Maths lesson by the Regulator herself, Lefaoali’i is simply a role model.
