My Uni Movie by Kensi Makata


Tupou Neiufi.


Today at my 11’o’clock meet, we were interviewing Tupou Neiufi.

I asked her a question and it was how do you keep yourself fit in MIQ?

And her answer was that she had an exercise bike and she showed us what it looked like. 

She also showed us her gold medal and her golden Someity (Mascot for the paralympics).

I am Iva(9) years old
