Philo Boys: Lifaite

Meet Lifaite. He is 25 years old and finished Philo this year. He is dedicating his year of service at Espwa to plumbing and is often seen around the quad and at the village fixing problems and making sure people all over Espwa get the water they need. It can often be a thankless job, but we are so grateful for all the help he's provided, and his dedication to his work at all hours of the day and night.

Lifaite's wide grin perfectly captures his witty personality, and although he jokes a lot, it is clear that he takes his responsibilities at Espwa very seriously, and takes great pride in the trust Espwa has put in him. His favorite subjects are experimental sciences, physics, chemistry and biology. He enjoys practicing cultural activities and playing with the kids.

He would like to be an agronomist or administrator now that he has completed his schooling. The person he says inspires him is Nelson Mandela. He is also inspired by his mother, who has taught him to live his life to the fullest each day.
