As a young professional in the CNMI, my journey began as a student of the Public School System, graduating from Kagman High School then continuing my education at Kapi’olani Community College and the University of Hawai’i at Manoa, where I studied Finance and International Business. Gaining experience in the workforce in Honolulu then in Washington state broadened my perspective and allowed me to acquire skills that helped me succeed in leadership positions. In 2016 I returned to Saipan, joined the workforce, volunteered in my community, and explored the natural beauty of our Marianas – reawakening my love, respect, and responsibility for our homeland.
