Meleika Gesa-Fatafehi is pretty hilarious and laughs too much, so much that her Black/Indigenous and Pasifika ancestors are probably tired of her. Lucky she alternates burdening the two sides of her ancestry who are from Mer (Murray) Island, from the Zagareb and Dauareb tribes and Fahefa, Tonga. Meleika is also a literature and film critic, or something along the lines of that. She loves talking about all things nerdy, rapping and creating, as well as decolonising spaces online and in real life. She is a storyteller that takes many forms; the most prominent, a poet. If she’s upset any of her ancestors whilst making this bio, she’s sorry.
