My name is Kawehilani Hayes, Hilo of the Kanilehua rain is my home. I am a public school students who graduated from Waiākea High School in 2003. Upon graduating, I sought out my B.A. in Hawaiian Studies at Ka Haka ʻUla O Keʻelikōlani, and indeed graduated with that degree. Kahuawaiola was the next part of my educational journey, seeking to strengthen myself and become a mauli ola Hawaiʻi teacher.
