Hello! My name is Kawehi Kina and I am from Waiheʻe. I graduated as a 4-year boarder at  Lāhaināluna High School in 2011 and I am currently in my 5th semester majoring in Liberal Arts and Hawaiian Studies at UH Maui College. Once I graduate here, I’m planning to transfer to UH Mānoa in Fall 2014 to study Social Work and minor in Hawaiian Language.  Whoo hoo!

I am currently a student for the Muʻo Aʻe program, the Kuʻina program, and Pai Ka Mana SSS. These programs are student support services that helps students succeed in college. I don’t want to get into detail about these programs so I’ll put links out so that you can check them out. Don’t feel confined to just one program, but go out and explore all the resources available to you! The more the merrier!!

On my free time, I like to sleep and watch family feud, the one with Steve Harvey cause he makes it so much funnier! But on the days when I feel energetic, I like to do photography, swimming in fresh water (salt water makes me sticky), hiking, or just admiring beautiful Maui, cuz, you know, Maui no ka ‘oi.

Here are some words of advice that I live by everyday:

“Just go with the flow…” – Kawehi Kina

“Just think positive.” – Kawehi Kina

“Just do it!” – Kawehi Kina & partial credit to Nike.
