Teen Perspective

This video of a very moving portrayal of Pasifika and Maori youth is clearly making an impact beyond the  school hall where the speech was delivered. Joshua Iosefo is a Year 13 student at Mt Roskill Grammar, and this is his speech at his school assembly. 


  1. Hello, My name is Shaniqua Washington and I'm currently enrolled in Dr. Strange's EDM 310 class at the University of South Alabama. I watched the video and I was moved with how deep and passionate those words of the poem were. I even talked about your blog on my own blog page which is Thanks for the post!

  2. Thank you for having the foresight to film and share this speech. The message, word craft and delivery were superb. Inspiring speech that I will use in future.

  3. Your video showed at maturity beyond Year 13.

    I hope you have a made a choice for learning after leaving school where your passion and skills can make a difference.

    You can make a difference.

    Kia kaha. Kia manawanui.
