At first she was my faamoemoe in life.
To be & do better, to want to be successful and achieve things.
To think about the future and what we want for our lives, and at once to even be alive and not take my own life.
But then she taught me and made me realise that I have to have faamoemoe, a purpose for me.
That I need to do all these things, not for her or anyone else, but for me.
She has helped me to be happy and love the person I look at in the mirror everyday.
And to be here and always continue life for me.
She gave me the gift of faamoemoe.
