In this new series, executive director Sheri Daniels celebrates someone special in the Papa Ola Lōkahi ‘ohana each Monday.
Meet ‘Alohi Bikle!
‘Alohi feels blessed to have been born and raised in what she considers to be two of Hawaiʻi’s greatest moku: Hilo and Ko‘olauloa. These two communities have instilled, for her, the values she continues to live by today. A proud graduate of Kahuku High School, ‘Alohi joined Papa Ola Lōkahi by way of Washington, D.C., having recently served as a Legislative Fellow in the office of U.S. Senator Mazie K. Hirono. ‘Alohi’s stint on Capitol Hill, coupled with her background in journalism and mass-communication, has deepened her drive to improve the quality of life for Native Hawaiians and their families. Outside of her role as POL’s Policy and Compliance Coordinator, you will most likely find ʻAlohi tending to her backyard in Ka‘a‘awa, visiting ‘ohana on Hawai‘i Island, and or in the kitchen conquering another recipe.
