“As I walked to my elementary school in my home state of Hawaii, I would, many times, see dozens of homeless people along the streets. I often questioned why these wanderers were in this position, and the answer I received was that many crucial opportunities had never presented themselves for them. After understanding this, I was inspired to create these opportunities for myself to ensure that I would someday be able to comfortably lend aid to these less fortunate citizens.”
