She is also a member of YES Disability's Youth Engagement Group, as well as being one of the founding members of the Phusion Dance Group, an all-abilities dance group dedicated to pasifika dance and culture. Her bubbly attitude and caring nature has been a welcome addition to any group or project she's been involved in, and her loyalty to the cause and tenacity for social justice are effective platforms for voicing change when it counts.
