Introducing Hawaii’s New First Lady
How long does it take you to get ready for work? About 45 minutes. I often can’t decide what to wear.
How would you describe your day-to-day style? My style is classic business, and I do enjoy wearing shoes with heels.
Fitness routine: I run in the mornings at Magic Island in Ala Moana. Watching the sun rise over Diamond Head reminds me how lucky I am to live in Hawaii.
How did you and the governor meet? We met at University of Hawaii. We were both candidates for student government positions in the Associated Students of the University of Hawaii (ASUH). Fortunately, we both won our seats.
Do you have a say in what the governor wears? Yes, I do give him suggestions. I like bold colors for his aloha shirts.
What is your New Year’s tradition? Our family enjoys ozoni or mochi soup. The soup recipe has been passed down from my grandmother in Ewa. It’s what our family looks forward to each New Year.
What is your New Year’s resolution? To look for ways to support and strengthen our education system so our students can continue to be successful.
