Why did you choose UH Law?
I chose it because Hawaiʻi's quality of life is unmatched. I knew my family and I would be happy here, and I've always wanted to live in Hawaiʻi. I was also attracted by WSRSL's small size compared to other Tier One law schools.
What were you doing before you started Law School?
I worked as a Search and Rescue and Environmental Response specialist in Guam and the surrounding Micronesian region.
Where are you headed after you graduate?
To work, hopefully in Hawaiʻi.
