Samoa: St Marys College welcome a special visitor

Students of St Marys College welcomed a very special visitor last week.

She is short story author and journalist, Sara Vui Talitu, the woman behind popular books such as “Guilty Rain” and “Ma’a.”

“It’s a way for me to encourage the young writers to be sincere, humble and to write out of necessity to say something important,” she says.

Ms Talitu encouraged the students to be creative and write their own stories.

The New Zealand-born Samoan has a solid broadcasting background having worked with the Radio New Zealand International as a journalist, sub-editor and newsreader for ten long years.

Talitu has two Masters degrees from the University of Auckland as well as a Postgraduate Diploma in Journalism from the University of Canterbury. Her reporting interests include Pacific issues, women, business and health.
