Project Description

My name is Sesilia Sanalio, and I am 26years of age. Yes I was born here and have lived here all my life but I also believe in remembering your roots, or where you came from. Both my parents are Tongan descendants and NZ was their getaway spot to help make a better future for my siblings and I. Growing up I learnt not only how to live the New Zealand way but also adapted with a bit of my Tongan culture. Yes, I speak both languages fluently and I do this in my everyday life.

I am currently on break with University studies, but have done two years of Primary Education studying and am left to do one more year to earn that Bachelor in Education degree. I have had past experiences with children ranging from ages 2 – 18, as I have already achieved Certificate L3 Youthwork and Certificate Level 4 pre teaching in ECE and Primary.

I enjoy music and performing arts, so creativity and the eye for colours is really my thing. I practice this and am capable of doing a little bit to help children build on their confidence level with communicating with others. I have a passion for children and what they have to offer in our world today and I believe I do have these qualities to help these little ones get through with that.

I have been given the opportunity to be the Educator for the Home2Grow based in East Tamaki. I am enjoying it and am looking forward to working with you and your children.
