ProjectFocus showed me that there were other people who had also gone through losing someone close to them. They brought me in and treated me like family. Since 2007, I have moved from Hawai`i to California and just recently returned the islands. During my time on the mainland, I learned to grow up and understand things more. I have finally set my goals for the future. I am most proud of being able to help people with their problems. I like to show people that there is hope and meaning to life.
I am…unique and strong
I will…protect the people who are close to me
I appreciate…my family for making me — me
