Joshua Iosefo

We were lucky enough to have another awesome role model for success in the school today. Joshua Iosefo, the man most well known  for his 'Brown Brother' speech, came in and delivered some great stories. He told us of his inspirational grandfather, who came to New Zealand with two shillings and a singlet and transformed his life to have a happy life, family and home. He spoke of inspiration as success, and that he feels his success is not his fame but his influence on others.

In hub 9 we have been examining different definitions and perceptions of success, and students suggested success is not always fame, fortune or popularity. Joshua was amazing in making this authentic, as he spoke about his success in ways that had nothing to do with money, and he was incredibly humble. A fantastic role model indeed.
