"My first exposure to politics was seeing a picture of my father in his air force uniform holding a picture of then-President John F. Kennedy who was President in the 60s. Later in the 70's I remember a few campaign posters in a couple of my family member's homes. I recall conversations they would have of who they wanted as president if they could vote. As Samoans, they were not allowed to VOLTE as Nationals. Even then they knew the importance of VOTING. I couldn't wait to turn 18 to register to VOTE. I have been VOTING ever since, as a matter of fact. I ran for public office . I lost but more importantly. It was about the journey, motivating our community and about the process. Inspire your family and friends, Register today and Vote."

"VOTE! Think about your ancestors, 7 generations ago. What would have happened if they didn't vote and work tirelessly for greater equity and justice in this world we live in today. Think about the feature, 7 generations ahead of you. What kind of world do you want to leave behind for them?"
