Hanna Wallwork tops her class

Hanna Wallwork has topped her Year 8 class at the Seventh Day Adventist College. 

She was presented her prize in a combined school prize giving ceremony on Thursday and is the youngest daughter of Samoa Weightlifting Federation president, Tuaopepe Jerry Wallwork and Losa Maimai Wallwork.

“Hanna has always been the spoiled one. She has done us proud today. We hope that she continues to be a good person and help others in the future,” said her mother Losa.

Her grandfather Seiuli Paul Wallwork and sisters Piliopo and Sulia Wallwork joined her parents at the college to witness the occasion. Speaking to the Samoa Observer after her presentation, she said her challenges in school helped her grow to love and help her fellow classmates. 

“All thanks go out to my parents for always being there for me, my sisters for attending the prize giving and my grandparents for instilling a love for the lord in my life,” she said.

Her biggest role model is American superhero film character Wonder Woman, which is played by Gal Gadot, an Israeli actress, singer, martial artist, and model.

“She proves to me that we can be whatever we want to be in life,” she added. 

Hanna will continue her education at Samoa College next year. 

“I look forward to going to Samoa College because I know it is a competitive school. I have a lot to strive for and I know that the challenges will help me achieve greater success.  My goal now is to be top of my class in college,” she said.
