My goal is to normalize healthy relationships and teach others to be okay with waiting for the right person.

At the age of 18, Jadyn Patrilita Petimara Ualesi has already seen the devastating effects of unhealthy relationships on her peers. In her new book, “Fear to Love,” Ualesi set out to demonstrate the importance of healthy and respectful relationships, particularly for teens and young adults.

“I see my peers so often jump head-first into dating someone before truly considering the implications of their relationship,” Ualesi said. “My goal is to normalize healthy relationships and teach others to be okay with waiting for the right person.”

Ualesi began writing at the age of 13 and has several poetries, two other unpublished novels and other works for which she has already gained recognition. She hopes that through sharing her own thoughts and experiences, she can help shape the lives of younger generations.

“The youth of today are killed and commit suicide because of love, abuse love for personal gain, bring embarrassment and disrespect to families because of love and yet are so desperately seeking true and honest love,” Ualesi said. “The more they see that healthy relationships are possible, the more likely they are to wait.”
