Right from childhood, Laura had to face Racism especially during her younger years in Australia. She faced this at high school and this made her change school frequently which almost affected her social skills.
Due to Racism, she had to move to the United States at the age of 19 to study Dance. According to Laura, the time she moved to the US was the only time she ever felt comfortable among people who weren’t Fijians.
In her words: “I feel like I only ever felt at home when I actually moved to the US and I mean Home in a sense of I felt comfortable with who I am with people who are not Fijians”.
On the 5th day she was nominated for eviction and with 6 votes against her, she was evicted from the show
