"Save Tetiaroa, Save My people"
My name is Vairupe Huiotu Pater, ta'ata tumu no Moorea. I represented my island with the title of Miss Moorea 2001, then Polynesia at Miss Earth in 2003.
I graduated in 2007 with a Masters degree in Economics from Bordeaux University, after which I returned to my fenua in order to put my organizational and management skills to use; first in banking, then at the dolphinarium, Moorea Dolphin Center, and at the association Te Mana O Te Moana.
I have been surrounded by nature, Polynesian culture and people since my earliest childhood, and the honor of joining the Tetiaroa Society team to provide my support as Director of Operations is perfectly aligned with my core values of honor, respect, and humility. However, my rigor in the workplace does not prevent me from liking sequins, rainbows and “pandali”.
