Here's my Visual Mihi for 2014, it holds the 4 symbols that represent me.
The very first symbol is my prefects badge, the reason why I put this as a symbol is because it represents my school and my role as a prefect.
The second symbol is of my hobbies. Now you may not see all of the things that I drew in the column, but in my spare time, I like to go on Youtube or read and write.
Thirdly is one of my favourites. This one, as you can probably tell is of my culture. I interputed it by drawing the flag, some patterns and the quote from the four of arms. "Ko e ʻOtua mo Tonga ko hoku Tofiʻa" which means in English: "God and Tonga are my inheritance"
The last symbol is my religion. I am Christian and it plays a big part in my life style and family. I drew the cross, the bible and the communion bread.

In Extension, we learnt about a war that New Zealand participated in. The Boer (pronounced BORE) War. We were given a task to write a diary of what a NZ solider in the Boer War would be experiencing. Here is mine :) By the way, the following is completely fiction. Sorry if you can't understand the lettering.

Empathy is really important and to be honest, it’s a fairly complex topic. Although the simplest definition of Empathy is putting yourself in other people’s shoes and seeing their problems through their eyes. A LOT of people easily confuse Sympathy and Empathy.
What is the difference between Sympathy and Empathy? I believe Empathy starts off as a feeling, this then leads to an action. A really good way to show Empathy is by discussing complications and connecting. Showing Empathy is as easy as caring for someone. Just by asking someone: “How are you REALLY feeling?” can make their day a whole lot better.
Instead of confronting the person and their situation, Sympathy is feeling sad for the person and what they are going through. It doesn’t exactly build a connection between people but rather makes the whole point of pity.
Empathy plays a big part in Tiaki Taonga, if everyone was empathetic, we would be living in a much better society and environment. Don’t you think?
