I am a proud trans woman who draws her mana from ancestors who traveled Te Moana Nui O Kiva.

I am their legacy who is here to spread their knowledge and values in the world and to leave this place better for future generations.

Currently in my country, we are socially included but legally excluded. I am trying to fight for equality for all.
