Why you’re here/Why Alaska: As a kid, I grew up without running water or electricity on Niʻaupala fishpond on Molokaʻi. Living off the grid taught lots of skills and values that I feel Angling Unlimited demonstrates. I am so excited to be able to be a part of this nostalgic opportunity in such a beautiful and positive atmosphere. I cannot wait for the experience to start!
What you do in the offseason: During the offseason, I am a collegiate volleyball player and student at Eastern Washington University. I am studying Recreation and Tourism Management as well as sports management. I hope this upcoming offseason, I will be continuing my schooling as a graduate student or/and furthering my career within sports or recreation.
What you love to do/hobbies: I love baking sweets, ocean sports, fishing, hiking, painting, and traveling. I also enjoy learning more about my culture and practicing traditions with my family. I also adore all animals, big and small, as I have a cat named Roo and hopefully a dog soon.
Education/goals/career plan: I am a current graduate school applicant and hope to get my master’s in Sports and Recreation administration. I hope this will allow me to have a resume to support my future goals of being involved in either collegiate sports or the recreation and tourism department as I cannot see myself working indoors.
