Hawaii Energy Fellows 2017
Graduated from University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Public Health.
What motivated you to become a Hawaii Energy Fellow?
I am motivated to be a Hawaii Energy Fellow because I am keen to explore the intersection between energy and health. The transition to using new technologies and greater efficiency in energy can help provide numerous benefits to public health and the environment by saving energy and money and reducing climate change impacts at the same time.
Name three things you would like to learn from your fellowship.
I would like to learn more about the clean energy issues and solutions that are being addressed today. I would also like to develop skills in community outreach and to build relationships with people in the energy and sustainability industry.
Why is clean energy important to you?
I believe that by constructing a future in clean, sustainable energy, we are protecting the health and wellbeing of our communities here in Hawai‘i, the environment, and the generations to come. The isolated location and limited resources specific to the Hawaiian Islands has made it evident to me that I would like to be a part in helping Hawai‘i achieve 100% Clean Energy by 2045.
