They say the finish line is just the beginning of a whole new race. But does it take a lot of effort to actually start the race?—perhaps a diet, school, a family, a business or a programme.
At the National University of Samoa (N.U.S.) last week, a Talanoa Session involving students, was attended by the Secretary General of the Pacific Islands Forum Secretariat, Dame Meg Taylor. At the heart of the Talanoa session was student’s perspectives on issues confronting the Pacific region. The keynote speaker was Meilani Aperaamo, a 3rd year student.
