Beatrice Faumuina’s Wiki page outlines her incredible array of sporting achievements.
A hero in her homeland of Samoa, and a kiwi legend in New Zealand, she’s one of only a handful of people who were championed by two countries in concert.
Her Wiki doesn’t say much of her extensive work in business, and her efforts in education and leadership, however.
I was honoured to work with her and her team at BEST Academy, photographing events and participants in their Pasifika Leadership programme.
Currently, she’s New Zealand’s Trade Commissioner and Consul General, New York.
She’s a lovely person, and I miss our chats.
