The University of Hawaii at Hilo (Other)
My name is Kourtnie, but everyone calls me by my Hawaiian name Mahealani. I am currently taking the school year off from attending The University of Hawaii at Hilo to have more of an "on-hands" experience in the work field. I've been in the Hawaiian Immersion Program since I was 2 years old. I graduated with my High School Diploma from Ke Kula 'O Samuel M. Kamakau Public Charter School on the Island of Oahu in Kaneohe on the East side. In August 2010, I began my journey studying English Communications at The University of Hawaii at Hilo.
I currently live off-campus in Papaikou with my Mother and Aunt. I am very outgoing, friendly, patient, understanding and very loving. I am not afraid to be myself and I am very open-minded. Being brought up with many Hawaiian values, I was taught to always put the next generation in consideration in all my life decisions. It is my duty as a "Kanaka Maoli" or Native Hawaiian to educate our youth in any way possible. It is important for the next generation to learn about the Hawaiian culture, however because we live in a Westernized world, we must all be able to communicate and commit ourselves to the English learning world.
I believe that I am very good with children young and older teens, because of my personal experience. English is not my first language, Hawaiian is. Therefore, I too did have a lot of difficulties reading and writing in English. It wasn't until my sophomore year in High School that my reading and writing skills in English we're improved and at the standards of the state. I do believe in the next generation, and I do believe in helping others in any way possible I can.
Mahalo nui for your time! Aloha everyone,
