The World Needs The Possibilities Found In Jandels, School Shoes, And All Other Footwear

In the role of a Pasifika Liaison Advisor I attended a meeting to discuss the development of a pasifika education strategy for our local tertiary education provider. At that meeting attendees included tertiary staff, pacific community leaders including church leaders, and pacific students. A pacific student brought silence to the discussion and is the inspiration for this little story in poem with her story of school shoes and jandels / flip flops.
