I COME FROM A MIXED PARENTAGE of East Sepik and Oro Provinces but was born and raised up in Kainantu in the Eastern Highlands Province. I’m 25 and have been living with disabilities since 1995.
I’m currently doing my final year of study in the communications for development at the PNG University of Technology. I am a peace-loving person with a sense of humour.
I’m also an advocate of national unity and keen to be an honest and transparent person in all my actions and decisions as much as possible, and always be thankful to God in good times and bad times in everything in life.
My interest is in reading, writing, documenting my cultures, traditions and legends and also to involve myself in societal services. Most of my writings are from my own personal experiences and encounters in life. Thus I have recently documented legends from my home village.
Hopefully I will one day get the chance to write and publish my own books about my personal experiences and also about my people’s customs and traditions and legends of my home villages in East Sepik and Oro Provinces respectively in the near future.
As a person living with disabilities, life has been very challenging for me because I could not do everything that I wished. However, positive thinking, sheer determination and faith in God has always made me prosper in every aspect in my life over these 17 years.
It is my keen desire to see that, wherever I may be in future, I will have an impact and influence on everyone who knows me, especially with my distinct personality.
Moreover, I want to advocate and promote equal treatment, attention and participation for people living with disabilities in every aspect of life in this sovereign nation of mine, Papua New Guinea.
