Aloha Kākou! My name is Kaʻie Naboa-Cordy I am a senior and this is my first year with Ka Mōʻī. In my spare time, I like to read, write, research, listen to music, and watch TV. I do not plan on pursuing a journalism degree, instead, I plan on going to college to be involved in healthcare and medicine. I do love writing though, especially creative writing, and in the next few years I am trying to fit in the time to learn more about writing so when my career and life settle down, I will be able to be an author on the side. But anyways, this past summer I was able to do a research project based on journalism, and intern with the Hawaii Pacific Health Communications department, which focused mainly on journalism. Through my project and internship, I realized how important journalism is for all careers. Specifically, I witnessed many doctors and nurses write and publish articles about their patients and careers in order to reveal the reality of healthcare and some patients' situations. Through their writing, they were creating transparency about health care and its needs. The simple version of why I want to work in healthcare is to be able to help people in their time of need. And the reality is, sometimes, just fixing their injury or sickness won’t do the job, sometimes like I mentioned above, patients’ voices need to be heard. Journalism is a way for me to achieve this goal. I hope to develop my writing and journalism skills for the future through this class. This year, I aim to advocate for our school, students, staff, and community, and to make sure that their voices are heard and acknowledged.
