Hi, my name is Dan Gilmete. I am 22 years old, originally from the beautiful island of Pohnpei, Federated States of Micronesia.
Yes, I’m a long way from home. From the deep, blue, central Pacific Ocean, I travel for 3 days to get to New Zealand. But considering how much I’ve experienced and loved about New Zealand, I’d say that it is so worth the distance. This is my third year at Massey University studying for a Bachelors Degree in Information Science, minoring in Business Information Systems.
I enjoy working with computers, especially doing repairs, with a hope of starting my own business one day. Besides computers, I’m also crazy about cars. I have my very own 94 22RE Toyota Pickup with a 4 cylinder 2.4-liter engine and a max power rating of 105 horsepower. I bought it when I was in 2nd year of High School year and have been driving it for about 6-7 years now. It has been my life, my history, and my passion. I have been working on cars ever since I was a kid, and it’s been a dream of mine to go back home and merge my computer skills with auto mechanics into my own small business.
