Connecting us to place and community, the art of University of Hawaiʻi alumni Kaili Chun and Derick Fabian shifts perception, tugs at common ties, and brings us closer. In the spring 2021 issue of UH Magazine, these local artists, whose work may each be spotted on sides of buildings in very different ways, explore the depths of history and the furthest injured sections of our hearts.
In another story, the CEO of We Are Oceania shared the unique challenges and rewards she encounters in working with Micronesian residents.
“We are vulnerable,” said Josie Howard. “We have seen how things we count on can be quickly taken away—jobs, health, housing.” Also in this issue: Supercooling technology keeps ʻahi fresh for days and high school girls produce PSAs about cybersecurity. Celebrate our connectedness with a spotlight on alumni-owned small businesses, broadcast meteorologist Malika Dudley takes over our Instagram, kudos to UH graduates making waves, and melancholy farewells to members of our alumni ʻohana.
The bi-annual UH Magazine, published by Pacific Basin Communications in partnership with the UH Foundation, highlights alumni accomplishments and news from UH’s 10 campuses.
