Occupation: Air Vanuatu (Facebook, 2017)
Education: University of the South Pacific, Suva, Fiji (Facebook, 2017)

Reason: "I've been playing beach volleyball since 2007. I used to play indoor volleyball, but I didn't consider myself talented, it was just for fun. It was only after I was selected to play in a beach volleyball tournament in Australia that I thought maybe I was good at this." (sista.com.vu, 26 Apr 2016)
