Forum name change: Jackie to Awa
« on: October 27, 2010, 09:31:40 am »
Just a quick note to let ya all know that I changed my forum name from Jackie to Awa.  Awa means river in Maori and it reminds me that this whole process of immigration and in fact life is like a river - sometimes calm and beautiful and other times rough and dangerous.   O0

Very nice...

Strange enough, I told my son that once we're in NZ, we can 're-invent' ourselves.  ;D
What a great idea of finding a Maori name that suit you best!

Very 'inventive'!!! :)
