Aloha!

To some I'm known as Kelson, to others I'm known as K3!N@ (Keino: [kay-no]). This being my third year on senate, many know me as just Ho'omano. I'm a communication major and plan to graduate in Spring 2010. Hobbies of mine are ukulele, basketball, and computers. Proud to be President of UHHSA and hope we have a great new year!

As of September 27, 2009 I was voted into the Executive Chair position for the UH Student Caucus. This is going to be a great new year!

Vice President : Jesse Keone Potter

vice_potter

Aloha all, my name is Jesse Keone Potter. I was born in Mountain View just outside of Hilo, grew up in Kamuela, and went to high school on the West side of the island. Been in Hilo since 2004 and am loving my time here at UH Hilo. I am a double major, with Communications and Agriculture with a specialization in Tropical Horticulture. I am very excited to be working for the betterment of our university and the Big Island as a whole. The Big Island is my home, and so I feel a desire to take care of it, to malama i ka 'aina. If not working or going to school, I'm outside getting wet or dirty, or anything else that gets me going and centered. I love talking story and sharing laughs. So stop by and let's talk story, share some aloha, and make things better!

College of Business & Econmics (CoBE) Senator: Maralei Keala Barnett

cobe_barnett

My name is Keala. I'm a Business Administration Major and have been elected as the 2009-2010 College of Business and Economics (CoBE) Senator. Two of my favorite things to do are spend time with my 'ohana and bodyboard! I also love to malama this 'aina because of my inherent connection to the land. My favorite past time is working in lo'i kalo. I also like learning about ancient cultures on The History Channel. Thai food runs a close second to laulau, kalua pig, lomi-lomi salmon and poi (so 'ono!) One day, I want to travel the world. E malama pono!"

Ka Haka 'Ula O Ke'elikolani College of Hawaiian Language (KCHL) Senator: Jean Ku'ulei Bezilla

kchl_bezilla

Aloha mai kākou a pau e nā haumāna o ke kula nui o Hawai‘i ma Hilo! My name is Jean “Ku‘ulei” Bezilla. You can call me Jean, Ku‘ulei, or the funniest: Bezilla! I am the youngest of five children (you may have seen/ know some of my siblings on campus) born in Hilo and raised in Keaukaha… and I am your representing senator for Ka Haka ‘Ula O Ke’elikŌlani College of Hawaiian Language! I enjoy going to the beach or traveling on random adventures. I also like spending time socializing with friends and meeting new people. I LOVE to hula and speak Hawaiian. I feel that there is so much interesting things about the Hawaiian culture that we have yet to fully see and experience- however, there is hope :). No laila (hence/therefore), if there is anything I can do for you as part of your UH-Hilo Student Association or if you just want to talk, mai hilahila (no shame/ don’t be shy)!
