Mele Bukateci-Drivationo

I am an iTaukei Fijian mum, raising a family with my loving husband, in the beautiful Aotearoa (New Zealand). Born in my homeland, Fiji, I migrated at the age of twelve to New Zealand with my parents. I remember dreaming of the possibility of an iTaukei girl like myself writing a few words on a page that would inspire children around the world.

A teenager's dream has now become a reality in motherhood. I am humbled and excited to share this piece of literature with every parent who believes in raising great thinkers. I have been blessed to be introduced to the world of appreciation, learning, exploration, discovery, and excitement since having my babies. My writing is influenced by my daily experiences as a mum and wife and I wish for it to be a guide to every children's development and thinking.

I thank God for this wonderful experience to reveal a piece of my heart with you.
