Talofa, my name is Saumaleula Gardenia Lau Young; I go by the name Sau. I hail from my father's village of Fasito’otai, Upolu Samoa and my mother's village of Lesuoalií, Upolu Samoa. I am New Zealand born Samoan, born and raised in Kirikiriroa, Hamilton Waikato.  

I love spending time with my aiga (family) and friends, where we connect through talanoa (conversations) and meai (food) to maintain and nourish our relationships. I also love to be near the ocean, because the same waters touch the land of my ancestors, Samoa. 

The best way to get in touch with me is through email.
