Our impact
Collectively, we have made great progress and growth, but what excites us the most is the enormous potential we have to do even more.

Mahalo donors for your generosity. This opportunity to represent KS Alumni means a lot to me and these funds will greatly assist my educational endeavors. I have made a commitment to expand my professional toolbox in order to give back to the people and places that have made me who I am. My studies this year will build upon this as I am beginning my PhD in Environmental Life Sciences and will be working through the ASU Center for Global Discovery and Conservation Science located in Hilo, Hawaiʻi. I hope to transition into this new university and begin the first of my three research projects. Mahalo!
