Aloha! I am an English Major at University of Hawai’i at Hilo. I grew up in Kalapana on the Big Island of Hawai’i.
I have a passion for learning, education, and giving back to my community. Growing up in Hawai’i has taught me the values of culture and giving back to the community and land that gives us life.
My goal at the University of Hawai’i is to obtain my bachelor’s degree in English as well as the Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) Certificate. I currently work as a ParaProfessional Educator and a Substitute Teacher and have loved working with students to help them achieve their academic as well as personal goals. I also strive to teach my students the importance and value of culture and community.
