ProjectFocus helped me realize the beauty in the people around me, especially my family. I took pictures of my grandma. Doing this helped me highlight her admirable traits and now I see every day how wonderful she is. In 2010, I graduated from Iolani, and UH Manoa in 2014. I also had my first child and am currently a manager at the new Walgreens flagship store. I plan on starting graduate school in the fall. I am most proud of overcoming many obstacles involved with being a young mother and a full-time student with a full-time job. I dream of a future filled with opportunities for my daughter and for my ability to provide and take care of her.
I am…a mother
I will…continue to be the strong individual that I have become
I appreciate…all the trials and tribulations in my life that I have overcome because it portrays how invincible I am
