Abigail Kanahele Mawae is currently pursuing a juris doctorate degree at the William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa. She graduated Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor of arts in Communicology from UH Mānoa earning several awards, as well as Dean’s list honors, throughout her undergraduate years.

Mawae was a member of the UH Wahine swim team, competing in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) Women’s Conference Championship in 2021 where she aided the team in securing its fifth straight conference title. She also earned 2021 MPSF All-Academic Team honors, has been a staunch advocate for student-athlete mental health and physical well-being, served as a mentor to underclassmen athletes, and participated in numerous events geared towards encouraging young girls to participate in athletics.

Mawae served on the student-leadership team for the UH Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) throughout her four-year undergraduate career working within UH’s athletic program to build deeper relationships among the student-athlete community. She has helped organize outreach efforts and mentorship programs with high school students in Hawaiʻi and continues to invest her time in assisting high school athletes through her work to increase FCA’s presence on local high school campuses.

After graduation from UH, Mawae worked as a congressional staffer in the U.S. Senate providing assistance to, and working closely with, staff members in garnering support for legislative initiatives related to education, and anti-human trafficking efforts, while aiding to draft legislative proposals, particularly with respect to the remodeling of K–12 education.
