About Me: I’m an aspiring optometrist out of Kamehameha Schools and may be best known for winning Miss Hawaii USA 2006. I’ve modeled for Louis Vuitton, Escada, Anne Namba, Cartier and Tiffany & Co., to name a few. And if my work schedule says anything about me, it’s that I love keeping busy: On week-days I assist two vice presidents at Ko Olina Resort & Marina, and on weekends I perform as a Polynesian entertainer at Paradise Cove Luau.



Restaurant Big City Diner for everyday eating; Hoku’s at the Kahala for special occasions.

Place to shop Quaint boutiques like Valerie Joseph.

Hotel/Resort Ko Olina Resort (of course!)

Inspiration My nephew, Wynden, and three nieces, Rayce, Ryal and Reese, inspire me to do good things and to be a great role model for them. I love to hear the joy and excitement in their voices when they are ecstatic to see me on stage, in magazines or on TV. And it motivates me to do more!

Hero My “Gramps” Andrew Watson was a smart, determined, funny, strong yet gentle person even as he battled cancer. Those are the qualities that I look for in a man.

Radasha’s Favorite Quote/Advice:

Never settle for anything less than YOUR best!!!



Dream gig As a model, to be a cover model for Vogue magazine. As a hula dancer, to travel around the world to share the hula in as many countries as I can. In terms of career, I want to be an exceptional optometrist for my patients.

Childhood ambition To become an optometrist.

Guilty pleasure Milk chocolates, pizzas and cheese

If I ruled the world, I would ... Ask God to give me the guidance to be a great leader.

Corniest pickup line ever used on me “I think my mom knows your mom!!!” (Keoni Hansen used that one on me, and it worked! He’s been my love for two years.)

What’s up for me in 2007 I am moving to California in August to pursue my optometry degree at Cal State, Fullerton.
