Working and learning with the government of the state of Yap.
My two favorite quotes from famous leaders are "United we stand, divided we fall" and "Ask not what your country can do for you, but ask what you can do for your country".
I certainly believe that these are applicable messages to all of us because the messages are clear and we all should strive to apply to ourselves in order to contribute by truly adhering to these very important principles and developing our islands to be sustainable and resilience in any development and changes coming to our shores, whether man-made or natural causes and effects.
In our leadership role, I believe we should try to be truly united and to have island ways of reaching practical decisions to benefit the communities and people living in these remote villages and islands. Leadership should always consult many people representing areas of our State and incorporate their valuable ideas
Climate change is so critical for survival of our people on our small islands and atolls and coastal areas so I will make this as critical issue that we all need to understand and to take it seriously in the planning and development.
