About me

I grew up in Laupahoehoe, HI but spent most of my time in lovely Hilo Town. I participated in the Hawai'i Youth Conservation Corps on the Big Island in 2006 and O'ahu in 2008. HYCC was a life changing experience for me; it truly gave me an appreciation for the awesomeness of our islands. Now, I am a student at the University of Hawai'i at Manoa pursuing my BA in Theatre.

Why I love Hawaii

Hawai'i is one of the most special places in the world. No where else can you find so much diversity of culture and climate and that is amazing to me. This summer I spent two months in Seattle, WA and it made me miss home more than ever before. I guess you could just say that I am in love with Hawai'i - it's people, it's food, it's culture, and it's natural beauty.

I love soda. I really do. Not all sodas, but Coca Cola especially. I know it's bad for me. I know it rots my teeth. I know the cans, if left unrecycled, are bad for the environment. But I just can't help it. I just read that Jacoby Young made the commitment to stop drinking soda. Is this something...
