We have all faced adversity at some point in our lives. Providing basic physical needs and emotional support is an issue to our communities, to our nation, and to the world.  Being Miss Hawaii has provided me the opportunity to assist and encourage others to improve themselves and cope with their adversities.

   Adversity Builds Character is the motivation behind all of my community service activities. My ABCs of Life: Acceptance, Belief and Courage, is a three-step healing process that I have developed to address the emotional needs and vulnerabilities of those affected by challenging circumstances.

   Through the implementation of my Adversity Builds Character program, I would like to encourage and inspire people to learn to face their adversities and triumph over their obstacles. My goal is to make a difference in the lives of others.
