* Who is your personal hero and why?
"My personal hero is my mom, Moani Louise Minn Aiona. From a very young age, she showed great responsibility: excelling in high school and continuing through college while raising me. She succeeded in getting her bachelor's and master's degrees, then moved back home to help her community by becoming a counselor at Hana School. She chose not to be an ordinary high school student, and today she chooses to be an extraordinary member of the community."
