#Singing The Cook Island National Anthem!!! =D

As you all know, I love to sing. I had an opportunity last Saturday to sing both the Cook Island and New Zealand national anthem for the under 20's Cook Island rugby boys vs Tonga game. The game was held at Sacred Heart College.

I was sooo excited but I was also a little shy because I had to learn the words in 4 hours! I'm not really good at remembering words, ecspecially words in another language... "BUT!" I wanted to learn the words because I wanted to perform in front of my grandparents so that they knew how proud I am to be a Cook Islander.

As soon as we parked up, I could feel my goose bumps popping out. "You alright?" My mum said with a little grin. "Of course! I think it's just a little cold. Are you cold?!" I asked, trying to change the subject. "You'll be fine! Just look at nana and papa and you'll be good." My mum said with a gentle voice. "Hannah Tetini?! Hannah Tetini?!" Ana screamed threw the microphone. "Go baby you can do this =)" My mum carmly whispered.

I walked to the center of the field to get ready." As we were walking, I see more people coming towards the seats.  I could feel myself getting nervous as I grabbed the microphone and looking towards the crowd I see my grandparents waving and smiling at me, that made me feel confident.  I sang first then the Tongan singer went second and then we sand the NZ national anthem together.  I felt more confident as I sang more and could see my family.

I had a lot of fun meeting new people and hopefully i can do it again.

#My Visual Mihi =D

Kia Ora, Talofa Lava, Fakalofalahi atu and welcome to my blog! My name is Hannah and I have made a visual mihi about my sellf. Just so you could learn more about me. So as you could see, I have 4 separate cards behind my self portrait and they all have different backgrounds. The backgrounds explain the things that are important to me. 
Card 1 (Church):
As you could see my first card is a bible which represents church. I'm a Christian that has been attending Grace International church for over 9 years. I'm included in bands, dance groups and dramas. My whole family goes there including family friends. Church is really important for me and my family.

Card 2 (Singing):
One of my hobbies are singing. I would sing in the shower, during dinner, while were recording a movie and even when I'm talking to my friends. I try to be included in every single thing that includes singing. I also like to dance and do drama too!

Card 3 (Sports):
I also love to play netball and volleyball. I have played netball for 4 years and volley for 1 year. I've played these sports for school and have only been first out of all schools once, I have also been in the semi finals 3 times. 

Card 4 (My cultures):
As you may not know, I am a fruit salad of cultures. I am Cook Island, Niuean, Tongan and Samoan. I am really close with my Cook Island side. I am also close with my Niuean side but, I see my Cook Island side everyday. I know all my grandparents from all four sides. But sadly, 1 of my grandparent had passed away. I still very very love them <3.

#Neil Armstrong Untouched Items For Over 40 Years!?

Do you the guys know who Neil Armstrong is? Well if you don't keep on reading. Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon. On July 20th 1969, Neil Armstrong placed his left foot on the moon. If you want to know more about Mr Armstrong, click this link... NASA. But I'm going to talk about what, when and how he went to the moon. I am going to be talking about the untouched items that belonged  to Neil Armstrong.

When I say "Untouched items" I mean, they haven't been touched for quiet a while. The untouched items were found by, Carol Armstrong (Mr Armstrongs wife). She had found the items in a white small bag, in her closet after the death of Mr Armstrong. The objects placed in the small white bag were, power cables and utility clamps. So why are these items so important? Well because Neil Armstrong took the hidden items to the moon! Awesome right?! What's even better is you can see the tools and bag at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.

This is Hannah T signing off
