I am a parent of three children with developmental disorders and I have been my father’s main caregiver for the past 18 months in addition to working a full-time job. Despite this, I have finished my course load with excellent academic achievement and am close to beginning my dissertation. My research will confront the barriers facing Native Hawaiian students in the UH Community College System to improve their matriculation and persistence through the college educational pipeline. I could not have done this without your financial support! He mahalo no ia outou patahi apau loa!
