I graduated with my Associate’s degree in liberal studies in 2007 from American Samoa Community College and then that school gave me a scholarship to a program called Broadway Theater Project at the University of Florida. It was a Broadway program that had New York Broadway stars come down and do sessions with students from all over the world. People like the writers and producers of Guys and Dolls and The Lion King. It was the first time for me being in America. It was a culture shock. The speed limit in Samoa is 25 miles per hour and I got here and it felt like a roller coaster driving on the freeway.
