Im 21 years old and a woman and was thinking of moving to American Samoa. I have a degree in teaching,elementary school, and bilengual (spanish and english, soon samoan.) Sooo, do you think it would be ok for me to get a job there? I have heard that the locals push religion and going to church on you, is this true? And is it financially good?(in expensive or cheap wise). So can anyone tell me how is daily life in American Samoa. Im origanlly from Puerto Rico, so island life is apart of me. <3

Go to Samoa :), it's a good place, you treat them with respect and they'll treat you with respect, kind people....Unlike Fiji, there's a lot of rapists :( and cannabals, that's why the Indians built a fence around the whole island to keep them inside...:(
