I am a proud man from two very diverse heritages, Papua New Guinea and Australia.
I was born in Port Moresby, my beautiful mother is a proud Australian and my wonderful father is a proud Papua New Guinean. I am proud of who, what, and where I am… but the journey has not ended.
I still have a lot to learn, accomplish, to maintain, and better myself for the current generation. I love keeping fit, although I don’t visit the gym as much as I should. Being balanced physically, mentally, spiritually, and socially is important.
I found this out the hard way, which was a strenuous and time consuming process.
I had a terrible accident nearly four years ago. My aunty in Sydney told me about the With One Voice choir starting in Brisbane. She thought I should give it a go, and I thought, “Well I have nothing to lose”.
I don’t really hang out with my old friends anymore, being part of this choir has opened my eyes to a whole other world and other people’s views and perspectives.
