Neo Uesi

Neo is from Greater Salt Lake City, UT, but her roots are from the Pacific Island nation of Tonga. She is part of both the First Tongan Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and Granger Community Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in West Valley City, UT. She is part of her church’s young Millennials worship group, and a few years back she started their mime ministry called “Soldiers of Christ.” Neo loves learning history and has a passion for traditional Tongan dancing. She is also part of their Hesed (Loving Kindness) special needs ministry. Joining the Christian Church has been a huge stepping stone for her. She is finding her voice beyond being a pastor’s daughter and living in the shadow of older siblings. Neo currently works as an Outpatient Service Specialist at the University of Utah Healthcare Clinic and loves every minute of it! She applied for NBA XPLOR because she loves serving God - she just doesn’t know what she is supposed to be doing with her life.
