Discovering My Whakapapa

My Mum’s full name is Amanda Jane Williams. My full name is Olive Amanda Connolly and my brother’s full name is  Xavier Throes-To-Capua- Connolly. He was named after Xavier Rudd, my name was created by Pipi the seller man's girlfriend.

My mum was born in Rotorua on 22nd of April 1978. I was born in Christchurch Women's Hospital 2007. The 1st January is my birthday. Xavier was born in 2005 and his birthday is the 1st of December. My brother and I are Irish twins because we are one year apart. Mum has lived in Christchurch for 20 years. Dad has lived in Christchurch all his life. I have also lived in Christchurch all my life as has Xavier. 

My Grandmother is from Burma. We have a street named after my last name which is Connolly. This family name comes from my Papa Jerry. On my mum’s side of the family we have an All Black rugby player named Glen Osbourne from back in the old days.

I love all my family and they love me too. Mum and Dad work very hard to keep me warm at night, to keep me safe, to fill my tummy with good food, to get me to a good school and to put a roof over my head. They are lucky to have an amazing daughter that love them to pieces and for me, that they love me to pieces.
