Honesty, Respect, Compassion,
Courage and Service
Rossina has Niuean and NZ European backgrounds and grew up in Mangere East in South Auckland. She is from the village of Lakepa in Niue.
One of her earlier jobs was working for another health organisation which instilled in her a desire to adopt a healthier lifestyle not only for herself but for her family.
“Being part of the Healthy Families South Auckland movement allows me to continue this lifetime pursuit and to help make a difference in my home town of South Auckland.”
Who inspires you?
“Strong Pasifika women remind me that anything is possible. Most come from humble beginnings and yet they make the most of every opportunity with a lot of blood, sweat and tears – that, to me, is inspirational and makes me want to follow in their footsteps.”
What is your current role?
What is your vision for health and wellbeing in South Auckland?
Who is your favourite Superhero and why?
Black Widow – she’s gorgeous, she’s strong, she’s fearless – best of all she doesn’t possess any superpowers – she’s a natural hero. She reminds me of myself 🙂
What is your super power?
Like every wife, I too have telepathy – but it only works on my husbands and kids 🙂
