My favorite thing about UH Center at West Hawaiʻi… the instructors.  They are amazing and whatever they can to help.  There is a great feeling of ohana at Hawaiʻi Community College and plenty of opportunity to succeed within their programs.  I have made the Deanʻs List and Phi Theta Kappa while enrolled at HawCC.

My hobbies/interests… surfing, swimming, karate

If you came to my office you would see… me and I would answer any questions you had about the nursing program.

I like the Big Island because… of the crystal clear blue water while I am surfing, swimming or just hanging out at the beach.

In my free time I like to… surf, exercise, and love my beach time, I recently started taking karate from the International Karate League with Sensei Julian Shiroma.  It is an Okinawan based martial art and while it is challenging, it is very fun!  When I am not buried in my homework I whale watch, stand up paddle surfing while dolphins play around your board, turtles and load of other awesome marine life await in abundance.
