Construction worker gets published

Feterika Fred Sao once an illiterate laborer working at a construction site now an author of his own screenplay.

The 35 year old Samoan moved to New Zealand in the 70s and could never read or write in English even though he could speak the language well. After some time and getting back to school for English lessons he was able to put pen to paper.

Mr Sao is still having to work on odd construction jobs here and there but supplements his free time with creative writing. He is now working on a screenplay that is going to be published soon.
