As a young lad, Mataroa Toakarawa told himself that he would become a pilot someday. The Kiribati native was al­ways fascinated about robotic items, aircrafts and traveling.

In 2020 he made the decision to leave his family and friends be­hind and travel to Fiji to pursue his dream at the Pacific Flying School in Nadi.

The 21-year-old from Tabi­teuea Island sacrificed a lot and worked hard to make his mum, Totite and his late dad, Toa­karawa proud.
