John Pulu graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Communication Studies in Television from AUT University and joined the Tagata Pasifika team in 2010.

While still at high school John was inspired to become a journalist through work experience on Tagata Pasifika.

He had always been interested in Pacific issues and saw there was a lack of Pacific people working in the industry. “I am very honored to represent Pasifika people and share our stories”.

John is from the Kingdom of Tonga, Kolomotu‘a, Tongatapu and Holopeka, Ha‘apai with ties to Lau in the Fiji islands.
