Pacific leaders of tomorrow Young leaders: Winners of the inaugural Prime Minister's Pacific Youth Awards, from left: Samuelu Si'ilata and Tammy Kingi of Manukau and J'aime Laurenson from central Auckland. OUTSTANDING qualities as leaders in education and the arts have won inaugural Prime Minister s Youth Awards for two south Auck- landers. Samuelu Si ilata and Tammy Kingi and central Aucklander J aime Lau- renson received their awards from Prime Minister John Key at Manukau s Pacific Events Centre last Friday night. Mr Si ilata, 24, excels in creative arts including poetry, music, dance, paint- ing, costume design, carving and screenwriting. He has a degree in film and television from Auckland University and a postgradu- ate diploma in digital media from AUT. Winning the Weta Work- shop creativity award and a year of mentoring by Sir Richard Taylor is a dream come true, Mr Si ilata says. Here I ve been given the chance to work with the absolute best. The chance for me to immerse myself in that world is absolutely brilliant. Ms Kingi from Mangere Bridge wins the Cogita award for inspiration and a $5000 overseas trip for her advocacy for Pasifika youth. The 22-year-old is a fluent Niuean speaker and is doing post-graduate linguistics studies at Auckland Univer- sity. As the university s Niuean student association president for the past three years she s been an important support for other Niuean students. She also encourages Pacific high school students to pur- sue higher education as a Dream fono mentor and is an adviser to the National Cen- tre of Mental Health Research, Information and Workforce Development. The Auckland University leadership award goes to Mr Laurenson, the first student to graduate from the univer- sity with first-class honours in both law and engineering bachelor degrees. He is of Samoan descent and his mentoring of Pacific engineering students has con- tributed to a 100 percent retention rate and above- average pass rates. Mr Laurenson plans to use his $6000 prize on tuition fees for post-graduate studies in mechatronics -- mechanical and electrical engineering. I can help and encourage Pacific people to consider opportunities and careers they wouldn t think possible. He hopes his example will encourage more Pacific people into engineering.
