Moemoe was eight years old when she migrated to New Zealand with her family.  Her goal is to be " a Samoan female student out there, aiming high".

Showing strong leadership skills over the years, she participated in the 2011 Unitec leadership programme as well as being actively involved in many areas of school life, sports and church activities.

The interviewers from Fletcher Building said " Moemoe came across as very well grounded and determined to succeed in all she puts her hand to. She showed great knowledge of the engineering career path, demonstrated logical thinking and is clearly an excellent team player".

Moemoe aims to attend the University of Auckland in 2015 to pursue a Bachelor of Engineering.
