Aloha Family and friends,
I've received a tremendous amount of inquires about sponsorship or donations, and I am so humbly blessed with the responses. As some of you may or may not know, there are fees and cost associated with pageants, such as advertisements, promoting your platform, attire, photos, etc. And so I have decided to share a link to assist with some of the expenses, but to ultimately highlight my platform(cause) and reasoning of why I have decided to run for
Mrs. Hawaii United States 2017.
My platform allows me to be an advocate, pressing for the legislature to allocate funding and raise public awareness specific to resources and support services focused on the CHILDREN of incarcerated parents. I've found that education has paved the way for many children, like myself, to decrease recidivism and ultimately improve quality of life. My first-hand experience have brought to light the gaps in care and lack of advocacy to such matters relating to the true victims of crimes committed by parents, the CHILDREN.
Ultimately, I would hope by participating in such an event will offer the opportunity to increase support for our communities by investing in our children's future and prosperity of our state.
Mahalo for your support and your contribution is greatly appreciated,
