Web Master, Online Editor, Photography, Wordpress, Google Analytics

During my senior year of high school, I was appointed Ka Mōʻī Newspaperʻs Online Editor and assumed the role of revitalizing the newspaperʻs online presence. I was given a cluttered and out-dated WordPress site, and I was told, “give it your best shot.” By the end of the year, my efforts increased online traffic by eight times and user growth increased by five times compared to the year before.

Restructured and redeveloped the online platform for the newspaper's WordPress-powered website. Responsible for writing, reviewing, and publishing articles and other material on to Ka Mōʻi’s online platform using WordPress CMS. Improved content creation by implementing Google Analytics for real-time feedback. Increased online traffic by eight times and reoccurring users by five times compared to the year before. In collaboration with other student reporters on staff, I helped to seek out, strategize, and develop new methods of sharing engaging content to our high school audience. Through conducting interviews, attending events, and engaging in conversation with faculty and fellow students, I am able to create authentic story-telling content representative of the diverse Kamehameha Kapālama community.

Most notably co-published an article titled, "Faltering School Climate Begins to Affect KS Community" alongside JP Newmann and Jade Ishii. The article was spread across campus and prompted upper-level administration at Kamehameha Schools to take action. You can view the article, here.
