ProjectFocus Hawai`i truly impacted my life because it really gave me a chance to connect with other kids and teenagers who have gone through the same thing as me. ProjectFocus gave me a chance to meet new people and learn that I’m not alone on this path and that I’ll always have others who will be here for me. I am a freshman now and since 2007 I have pursued hula and entered competitions with my class, winning second place. This has shaped me into the person I am today. My dream for the future is to graduate from high school and pursue a career in child resources or Hawaiian culture.
I am…a loving, compassionate young woman
I will…live life to the fullest
I appreciate…my friends and family for all their support
