We need long term goals that are well thought out and with investments on needed infrastructures that will steer jobs on our shores. Many of our educated youths have opt for better life in the U.S because of the lack of highly skill or challenge work opportunities available on island.

Thank you very much, Soia. After you gave me the name of the islet, I typed "niuaveve" on the website searching and I found the location of it on a satellite map. Interesting, you can find your house on there, if you live on the Tutuila
