University of Hawai’i at Hilo – Island Home
Filmed and produced by Destini Soares, UH Hilo Class of 2017

UH Hilo Admissions is happy to share a new video filmed and produced by one of our outstanding seniors, Destini Soares. As a Native Hawaiian student joining us from Arizona, Destini was curious about what attracted students already living in Hawai‘i to the UH Hilo campus. She began interviewing fellow students about their experiences, and then, Destini says, “the wheels just started to turn.” The final result is the discovery that local students choose UH Hilo for many of the same reasons that drew her to UH Hilo and it’s all captured in this video that Destini has titled “Island Home.”

Destini is a Kinesiology & Exercise Major and valued member of the Vulcan Women’s Soccer team; she will be graduating in May 2017.
