My Hawaiian heritage and ancestry is through my father. I am the great-grandaughter of Kathleen Kauhili‘ili‘i Jay Decker, who was born in Kalapana, Puna, Moku o Keawe, the daughter of Mary Kauila
I am a 2010 graduate of Kamehameha Schools Kapalama. I received my B.A. in Political Science from Purdue University. I am currently in my last year of my J.D. at William S Richardson School of Law.
For the past year and a half, I have worked for the Office of Hawaiian Affairs working on public policy and governance advocacy for the Native Hawaiian community.
As a young Native Hawaiian, I want to dedicate my life to bettering the future for my community. This is a pivotal moment for the Native Hawaiian community, and I believe my work experience and education makes me an excellent candidate to be a member of the ‘Aha.
