I am truely lost for words at where I am in life and what I've been blessed to discover.. Especially because there's so much I want to share and even more that I'm feeling. And with all that is transpiring I know God is in it and I am blessed.
I'm Overland Aimiti Fa'amaligi Mapuolesega Olotoa Su'apaia Afo and I love writing or in this case blogging.
I decided I'd start this up due to my good friend Fernando Dick Stone Leuluai . A rising star within our Polynesian Community and soon to be known worldwide. As he pursues his passion in the Film Industry out to shed light to the world that Polynesians are good people. I brag about his influence and example all of the time and will continue to do so because I believe in him and his mission. And short story long or longer.lol I was blessed to meet Nanz when my brother passed away earlier this year.He motivated me to continue on when all else was falling apart with losing Tuau.
And 9 months and a day ago today when Tuau returned to our Heavenly Father.
I vowed I'd start a center for youth. In order to help keep them from making unwise choices.
And even more to help them with unwise choices already made. Bringing hope to a generation who needs our guidance, our experiences and our stories.
Well that center was never created and I've been really hard on myself about it.
Until once again Nanz came through for me without even realizing.. Through his myspace page I was able to come across a new friend.
Danny Boi from the Bay Area another positive Polynesian Man on the rise. Desiring and working to help our people but especially our youth out. We started chatting about his dream of reaching out to youth in California and creating this AMAZING UPRISE. And the more we shared back and forth. The more pumped I became to getting things moving.
But I didn't know Danny and come to find out him living in Cali miles away created a slight problem. It would be difficult to plan things and go out to speak to the youth. When we live in two different places. So that wasn't cool..lol
But remember I said God is in it and has blessed me. Well Danny kept me from getting discouraged again. And referred Anapesi from SLC,UTAH who I already knew from church. Whom established exactly what I was looking for and have needed for quite sometime now. Through a group Anapesi started by the name of HYPE MOVEMENT..
Helping Youth Pursue Emancipation to build build build youth up. This practically fell into my lap and just by Nanz living his dream. I am able to find two individuals in Danny Boi and Anapesi to create mine.. And I am even more indebted to Nanz for this gift. And as he's advise pay it forward is what I'm gonna do. Through the remainder of 2008 into 2009 I can't wait to see where I end up with the help of Anapesi and the rest of the gang.. Bloggin what HYPE MOVEMENT is all about. Overjoyed at making a big difference through lives that will expand my growth in service. It's all about Hype and our local Church Choir Divine Heritage moving forward for me. As they leave their mark or if you will their footprints in my life. I'll be sure to step forward with the Lord and never lose sight of Tuau's Memory in all of what's ahead in the coming months... I'M SO HAPPY and it's crazy it really is!! My dream is becoming my reality!
