Student, Networker, Observer
In the spring of my junior year, and after a few meetings with Kamehameha Schools’ administration, I was given the opportunity to travel to San Francisco. For a while then, especially after Nalukai, I wanted to travel to the Bay Area to experience the zeitgeist of the tech capital of the world. During my spring break I, along with my mom, Pakalani Bello from Kamehameha Schools’ Communications, and Ken Chong from ReVisualEyeZ media toured headquarters of some of the world’s most famous technology companies. Utilizing my professional network at home, and my growing network in the Bay, I setup meetings with venture capitalists, developers at companies like Google and eBay, and even Kamehameha alumni in the tech industry. The week-long expedition filled with tours, college-visits, and meetings solidified my love for the area, and opened many doors for further opportunity.
