- Native Hawaiian Artists
School attending next school year:
- University of Hawai’i at Mānoa
Mahalo donors for giving me this opportunity to continue and focus on school. I will be able to use it not just for classes but for the supplies necessary for my environmental designs major. After graduating, I plan on becoming a licensed architect and working towards creating sustainable, affordable housing that locals and Native Hawaiians can benefit from. Living here in Hawaiʻi is not cheap, our houses are getting older and land is too expensive, putting our people in not the best of living situations. My goal is to give back and take care of those who took care of me and help those who need it. I am beyond grateful.
