I was very fortunate to have my mother and grandmother inspire me to go to college and then continue on to get a Masters and Law degree. I believe all of us must support education, especially higher education, if we want our kids to have a better future. Higher education is the bedrock of economic growth, allows all of us to create and enjoy a better standard of living, and it enhances the quality of life for everyone.
I remain committed to ensuring every person has right to pursue educational opportunities at any time in their life. We must continue to enhance our understanding of the world so we may better serve the future. Mahalo for your time and consideration, and for all you do to educate others.
