Teremoana Rapley: Singer-Songwriter, Aotearoa Music Hall of Fame

I had to find another Pacific person saying, “Isn’t this just what we do normally, or?” “That's what it is?” I was like, okay! I'm doing okay.

Katelyn Choe: U.S. Consul General in New Zealand

My first tour overseas as a diplomat, I went back to the very same embassy, standing on the other side of the windows. I knew exactly what applicants went through to get to that window, because my family and I have gone through the same steps.
