Hula Dancer “Good Morning Hawai’i”

kawenaI was born and raised in Hawaii on the island of Oahu.  Most of my childhood days were spent dancing hula.  In my spare time I was at the beach and hiking in the mountains of my backyard.  My parents started me in hula at the age of three.  As a child I danced at shows all over Waikiki and I’m proud to say that I’m still doing shows at the same hotels I danced at in my younger years. 
            Currently, I dance at Magic of Polynesia, a show at the Waikiki Beachcomber Hotel, and I am president of my own company Kawena Productions.  My company specializes in Polynesian entertainment.  In my spare time I love to surf, swim, hike, play tennis, and travel.  Soon I will be graduating from the University of Hawaii at Manoa with a degree in Hawaiian Language.      
            The love of my life is hula and will always be one of my biggest passions.  My goal is to one day become a successful actress and entertainer.  But for now I am focusing on the Miss Hawaii Pageant, I am currently Miss East Oahu.  In the future I would like to write a movie or two that shows the life of a Pacific Islander to people across the world.  I want to be a part of reviving my culture of Hawaii; in the future I would like to establish a Hawaiian language radio station and TV show.  One of my strongest dreams is to tour Oceania with a Polynesian show that I helped choreograph and create.  Hula is a way of life that I strive to live by everyday.  I always try to remember “we make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give”.
