Emily Malyuo wearing the T Shirt she designed

Kick off the fall semester with your very own 2022 student-designed HI Pride T-shirt available at the University of Hawaiʻi Bookstore System. The 2022 HI Pride T-Shirt Design Contest winner is UH West Oʻahu student Emily Maluyo.

Maluyo garnered over 2,400 votes for her design that depicts HI Pride as a “shaka” image. She describes her design as “the beauty of the kupaloke (tuberose) flower lei surrounding the shaka has a beautiful luminescence and a lovely fragrance that has made it a popular blossom in Hawaiʻi. Together, it ties in the love, friendship and pride found in each and every University of Hawaiʻi community.” Maluyo’s winning T-shirt design will be available at all UH bookstores this fall.
