“Create workspaces where we can thrive! Create the spaces and lives that we want to live in… We are part of a larger collective of wahine from Te Moana Nui A Kiwa, trying to lift our people and tell our stories. It feels like we are constantly trailblazing and it’s not always easy. But, you know in your naʻau (heart), it’s the right thing to do. Trust yourselves and where you seek inspiration and guidance from. ʻOnipaʻa (stand firm) in the decisions you make. Ground yourself in the values of aloha and ʻohana. Ask your kūpuna and you’ll make good decisions to weather any storm. Lean on each other and lean on your values.”
