I am a 2002 graduate of Kailua High School and now attend UH-Manoa studying kinesiology and leisure sciences. I hope to one day become a physical therapist or a professional dancer. I currently hold the title of Miss Hawaii USA 2008 and also I am an instructor/choreographer for 24-7 Danceforce. A career highlight has been becoming one of the directors for Heartbeat, a dance class that works hand-in-hand with the Special Olympics.
