She has also been hired by a biotechnologies company with a lab at UH Manoa where she will assist her supervisor in conducting research for immunotherapies that target cancer. She currently attends UH Manoa.
Julius Villaro's career goal is to work in cancer research to honor his late father who bravely lost his battle with the disease. Julius currently attends UH Manoa and is passionate about bringing awareness of rare cancers and advocating for patient treatment here in Hawaii.
Dr. Burgess speaks on his desire to honor his great-grandfather, Reverend John Kalino, through the establishment of the Kalino Foundation Scholarship. Like Ke Aliʻi Pauahi, this will leave a legacy for future native Hawaiian leaders that will be here forever. Cheyenne Bajo reflects on how scholarships like these matter because they not only open up a world of opportunity for her and her community, but to others looking up to her, that there is a way forward, and that many around want to help. The Pauahi Foundation partners with many generous donors, which include Native Hawaiian organizations such as the Kalino Foundation, to
establish endowed scholarships for post-secondary education,that will continue on into perpetuity. View video story here.
