Mauna Kea Forest Restoration Project

Student Intern Reflections
What I contributed to this project was my will to work whether it may be hard or difficult, so that the job can be executed with great quality.
As I think about this experience at Puʻu Mali and the people I worked with, I realized that if you want a certain knowledge to continue, you must teach it to the next generation. I am so glad I was given the opportunity of working with ʻAnakala Kalā, and ʻAnakala Jeremy because they have taught me many important life lessons such as self sustainability and a great work ethic that I can use in the future.

I contributed by putting in work when needed and wherever needed. I was hard working and wasn't distracted.
I thought the trip was pretty fun. There was a great view and I enjoyed working with Uncle Kalā and Uncle Jeremy. I put effort in my work and helped others out when they needed.
