Jakey Siolo, of PIK2AR + Nuanua Collective Director, Jakey Siolo, on being named one of the 7 for 17 Award Winners for 2023. The 7 for 17 Award recognizes young Utahns working to achieve the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) while exemplifying Utah Global Diplomacy’s core values of respect, social responsibility, and open dialogue. Jakey’s work as a community advocate and organizer with the Nuanua Collective, PIK2AR, and YWCA Utah have warranted his recognition for this award and as a reflection of the love he pours into the community. 

JP “John Paul” Foliaki actor + filmmaker  recently starred in “Red White & Brass (2023)” Inspired by a true story. Straight up, this actually happened. From the producers of Hunt for the Wilderpeople and The Breaker Upperers. "JP has experienced ‘mental health’ issues, in our Tongan community that is not normal for the men to go through something we do not feel is “real.” But his experience has helped him to find his true passion and that is to do what HE loves to do, what HE is passionate about and to have that dialogue with his parents about these things and to face those fears. A lot of our young people keep things boggled up and do not talk about it, those pent-up frustrations lead to other devastating issues."
