Holeka Inaba '16

Major: Communication Studies

I am a sophomore from Kona, Hawai’i, and coming to Chapman University has helped me to experience life outside the slow, peaceful existence of the HawaiianIslands. Receiving scholarship funds from Chapman University has really helped me to gain opportunities and other life experiences that would have been unavailable to me if I had stayed home. I’ve been raised in the culture and traditions of Hawai’i, and I had the great opportunity to learn my native language as a child. During my high school years, however, I knew that I wanted to leave Hawai’i to gain outside experiences that would help me later in life. My inspiration for leaving was really the Hawaiian people, who have faced many difficulties related to language and loss of culture throughout the last two centuries. I have made it my goal to become as educated and prepared as possible in the Western society so that I may return home upon graduation to help my people live successful, educated and sustainable lives once again. It would have been difficult for me to attend a private mainland university without substantial scholarship money. I am so thankful for all the assistance I’ve received from Chapman University’s scholarship fund and the great people I’ve met.
