The start of the makahiki season is the perfect opportunity for reflecting upon and renewing gratitude for the many blessings provided in our lives. Looking at the many positive experiences, along with the lessons learned through challenges, have all allowed for growth personally and professionally.

For myself, I am aware of, and give appreciation to, those who have laid the foundation before me, from nā aumakua to kuʻu kūpuna. It is from the values and beliefs that I am able to learn and holomua in all that I do. My ʻohana also bring support and insight for me, but it's my keiki that motivate me to be a better kanaka in the choices that I make and the intent of my actions.

I encourage you to aloha all those who inspire you to be a better kanaka!

Here is my mahalo to Kaleikoa, ʻĀpiki, Ohaikawiliula, and Ilisapeti for letting me kōkua our lāhui.

E ola mau,
