About me

I'm a member of the Class of 2012 at Punahou School. I've lived in Hawaii for almost my entire life.

Why I love Hawaii

I love the Aloha Spirit of Hawaii. It's not just an act for tourists, but a genuine feeling of welcome within the community. I don't think you could find the same spirit anywhere else. Hawaii mixes a combinations of cultures to become a place unlike any other. We end up with something that is truly Hawaiian that can't be found anywhere else. I've grown up not in a culture that reflects one group or another, but a culture that reflects the mixture of all groups. It has taught me to be more than just accepting of others. I've learned to embrace and grow from everyone around me.
