About Me – Aleila

Hi! My name is Aleila Alefaio, I am an undergrad studying Medical Anthropology and Global Health. I really enjoy what I study because I can connect my education to my culture – identity has always been a big thing for me, so I feel very fortunate being able to further my education and still be in touch with my roots. I’ve stayed in Australia and studied in New Zealand – this is my first archaeology class, so I can’t wait to see how it will further expand my world. Other than school, I like spontaneous adventures, being with my family, and hanging out with my little hippo!!
